Park Service Drops Assateague Speed Limits After Loss of Mare

The change follows a hit-and-run collision in July that killed the mare and injured her foal according to a story posted yesterday by Delmarva Now, an online news service of the Salisbury Daily Times.

Until 2016, when the darting program was stopped, the PZP zealots were getting rid of many more horses than motorists.  This is true today wherever they ply their trade.

The herd continued to decline until this year, when it produced a 7.8% birth rate, slightly larger than the death rate.
