Mysterious Illness Affecting Wild Horses on Big Island

A neurological condition of unknown origin has afflicted several wild horses in Waipio Valley, resulting in some deaths, according to a report dated 07/10/18 from Hawaii News Now.

Locals are worried the disease could spread to domestic horses.

The illness may be related to a toxin in spoiled feed.  Blood samples have been collected and tests are in progress.  H/T Kellyerin Claybaugh of Aramat Equine Services.
