COROLLA, N.C. – The Corolla Wild Horse Fund has located a potentially injured wild horse after one was struck by a vehicle in the Swan Beach area Friday night.

The horse was not too badly damaged according to the Corolla Wild Horse Fund.

According to the Wild Horse Fund, the vehicle was significantly damaged, but the horse ran off. Deputies searched for the horse, but could not find it in the dark.

The Wild Horse Fund asks anyone who sees a horse with injuries to call staff on the beach at (252)-453-8002.

In addition, the Wild Horse Fund asks that anyone driving on the beach slow down and use extreme caution, as the horses that frequent the beach at night are difficult to see in the dark.
