UK town overrun by pack of wild horses

March 2, 2011WALES – A town is being overrun by a pack of 250 wild horses abandoned by gypsies who can’t afford to feed them. Five of the horses have been killed when they were hit by cars and others are starving because they are not being fed. RSPCA inspectors were today on the scene at Bridgend, South Wales, after calls from worried animal lovers. The horses are believed to belong to gypsy families who have moved on from the area and were unable to pay for their feed and upkeep. Chairwoman Jenny Macgregor said: ‘The horses are everywhere, we’ve had reports of them getting onto the M4 motorway and being killed. ‘We have found at least five or six dead and they are dying of starvation and lung infections. ‘The situation is out of control.’ Residents in the town say they have been woken up by small groups of horses galloping past their homes in the middle of the night. Animal lover Pat Jones said: ‘They have apparently been wandering around for the last few days. ‘One of my friends has spent the morning trying to keep them from running into the road. ‘There are around 250, but they have split up into groups and they are absolutely starving. ‘I’ve heard that at least five or six have been found dead.  It’s really sad.’ An RSPCA spokesman said: ‘We are assessing the situation.’ –Daily Mail

    Animals are so conscious and aware, see how these lovely horses have banded together in search of food as a large group. Eagles, normally solitary, have responded exactly this way gathering by the hundreds in Iowa after their anticipated salmon runs this spring have caused them starvation as well (and they weren’t owned by ‘gypsies’ which is still speculation). Now wolf ‘superpacks’.

    If these wildlife are reorienting habitats en masse in search of food it’s not much of a stretch to see ourselves in the same predicament as these desperate beautiful creatures who’ve been predictable for thousands of years up to this point.
