Fort Polk Herd Dwindles

The Natchitoches Times reported today that just 20 to 30 wild horses remain in the Kisatchie National Forest, suggesting that the end is near for the herd.

The horses are not protected by the WHB Act and are viewed by Fort Polk staff (U.S. Army) as ‘trespass livestock.’  Several rescues and advocacy groups are working to find new homes for the mustangs, according to the report.

A post dated 09-08-19 by Pegasus Equine Guardian Associates says 318 wild horses have been removed from the area since the roundup was announced in 2016.
