More than 100 wild desert horses died in southern Namibia

The Namibia Wild Horses Foundation issued press release that over a hundred wild horses roaming the Namibia Desert in the south of Namibia in Aus area have died of a prolonged drought that began in 2013.

Statement said that there are about 160 wild horses at the moment, but these are in danger of being killed by spotted hyenas because they become easy prey in their weakened state by day.

According to a statement by the foundation, the drought left little grass in the horses’ range while fences also restrict these revered animals from moving further inland to areas that received scattered rainfall.

The foundation was founded in 2012 and is appealing for funds to buy lucern and provide water before it gets too late.
