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).
