ASSATEAGUE ISLAND, Md. (Gray News) – A woman on Assateague Island National Seashore learned it’s best not to mess with the wild horses that live there.
A Facebook video posted over the weekend shows the woman getting kicked after she swatted one of the horses with a plastic shovel. It was nosing through the food she brought with her to the beach.
Someone shouts “watch out” shortly after the woman smacks the horse on its hindquarters, but it was too late. The horse had already kicked her.
The wild horses of Assateague Island National Seashore are protected.
U.S. park officials advise visitors to stay away from them.
