A 2-year old stallion (N2BHS-AO, Adriana’s Yankee Prince) was struck by a motor vehicle along the Route 611 causeway Monday night, August 6th, at approximately 9:00 p.m. The horse was located this morning and assessed for injuries.
His left hind leg is swollen, and although he is currently lame on that leg, he is placing full weight on the leg and moving around foraging without much difficulty. A small laceration over the left rib cage was also observed. Park wildlife staff will continue to monitor his condition in the weeks ahead.
Visitors are reminded to slow down and always drive with caution along Assateague’s roadways and to be on the lookout for horses and other wildlife when visiting the National Seashore.
