Unleashed dogs have been seen chasing and harrassing wild horses on the beach along the Currituck Outer Banks in at least three instances in the past week.
“In one case, we were told that a dog actually bit one of the horses. This is so incredibly dangerous, for both the dog and the horses,” the Corolla Wild Horse Fund wrote on Facebook.
The post said that persistent harrassment “could make the horses aggressive towards dogs even if they aren’t provoked.”
A county ordinance requires dogs to be leashed at all times.
The Wild Horse Fund, which oversees protection of the animals, asked that anyone seeing similar incidents call the Currituck County non-emergency number at (252) 232-2216. The fund has no enforcement power.
“Please do not put your pets, the horses, or yourself in danger like this. It is illegal, irresponsible, and negligent,” the post said.
