California Highway Patrol spent hours searching for a "unicorn" on Wednesday. Yes, really. A white pony named Juliette, adorned with a horn as part of a fairy-tale photo shoot in Madera Ranchos, Calif., suddenly took off on her handler, reports CNN. She was caught but soon escaped again. Police were called in to help find her with a helicopter and thermal imaging. Four hours later, Juliette was discovered in an orchard, perhaps waiting for a unicorn prince, per USA Today. (There is such a thing as a unicorn deer.)
