Cedar Island Horses Swept Away by Dorian

The Charlotte Observer is reporting that 28 wild horses were lost on Cedar Island when hurricane Dorian hit on 09-06-19.  The horses roamed freely on 1,000 acres of privately owned land about 25 miles northeast of Shackleford Banks.  Only 21 remain.

Videos of a dead horse being eaten by a tiger shark in that area were posted two days ago by Reel Hooker Fishing & Outdoor Adventures.

The story did not indicate if the Cedar Island herd was subject to humane management practices (see Lexicon).
