“A fed horse is a dead horse”: Group warns of dangers of human food to Assateague Island NS ponies

n July, Assateague Island National Park lost one member of its most well-known pony herd: a 7-year-old mare, which was found dead in a campground.

Investigation by park service officials revealed the mare — known officially as N2BHS-AI, but more affectionately as “Chama Wingapo” — had ingested large amounts of dog food, which caused an intestinal blockage, and then a rupture which led to its early death.
