    The building's tenants conducted their own investigation before calling the police. It emerged the owner of the horse came to visit his friend who lives in the building and went up to the sixth floor via the elevator with the animal.
    It appears the neighborhood is located near agricultural farms and is easily accessible through a local park. Tenants believe the owner of the horse brought the animal from one of the nearby farms.
    The Tel Aviv-Yafo Municipality said since the building is privately owned and they are prevented from intervening in the situation.
