This Dec. 28 Facebook post by the Corolla Wild Horse Fund issues a warning about human contact with the horses.
“Folks, this is not ok. These people are too close to the horses and they’re damaging our dunes. Both are illegal. If you are here for the week or visiting for the day, please be respectful and follow the rules. The horse in this picture is young, and easily habituated. We lost a yearling colt this summer because of behavior like this. Please don’t let it happen again. Here’s the Wild Horse Ordinance: https://www.corollawildhorses.com/…/wild-horse…
Please, please educate yourselves before you visit. We don’t often have to post reminders like this over the winter, but 2020 continues to throw us all curve balls. (Yes, we responded but by the time we got there the people had moved on. If you witness this kind of thing you can let us know and also call Currituck County non-emergency dispatch at 252-232-2216.)”
