A Sticky Situation for Feral Horses

A Sticky Situation for Feral Horses

July 1, 2016  |  Ear to the Sand

This photo from Brickhill Marsh on the north end of Cumberland shows a feral horse stuck in the marsh.

Horses on Cumberland Island often get stuck in the marsh mud and starve or drown. They wander out during low tide to graze on marsh grasses, and they often sink in mud and cannot escape.

For the health of the island and especially the horses, the National Park Service needs to address the feral horse issue immediately.
