CURRITUCK COUNTY, N.C. -- Keep your dog on a leash! That's the gist of the message the Corolla Wild Horse Fund is sending after several instances of off-the-leash canines clashing with the wild horses.

The fund mentioned that defensive horses are often unpredictable and could turn that aggression towards people or the dogs.



They even mentioned that, "continued harrassment could make the horses aggressive towards dogs even if they aren't provoked."

There is also a county-wide law that says dogs much be on leashes at all times. Meaning our furry friends should not be wondering the beaches in the first place.
