Several horses that were released when pasture fences were cut have been found and returned to Mustang Monument sanctuary in Nevada.
According to an article in The Horse, 54 mustangs were recently found on property located near Mustang Monument, the sanctuary owned by Madeleine Pickens. The horses got loose after vandals cut several fences and damaged gates last month. All the sanctuary's water pumps had been shut off, which resulted in the deaths of more than a dozen horses.
The Horse reports that on Sept. 1, acting on information from a local rancher, officials found 54 of the missing horses on the rancher's nearby property. It is not known how many horse still remain at large.
In a statement released to the press, Pickens said, “We are thrilled to have these wandering Mustangs found and returned to the sanctuary. It is a true sigh of relief to have them back.”
