Six wild horses that tried repeatedly to cross the North Carolina state line into Virginia have been apprehended and placed at a rescue, according to a story that appeared yesterday in The News & Observer of Raleigh, NC.
They had been returned to their home territory six or seven times, but were determined to reach Virginia. Officials were concerned they would end up in populated areas, so after being declared a nuisance by the Department of the Interior (hard to believe, I know), they were rounded up.
Poor things, they only wanted a better life in Virginia Beach. With a little training, they could have done work that other horses wouldn’t do. What a bunch of equinophobes!
