WATCH: Number of rescued foals goes up


PENTICTON — As the number of feral horses continues to grow in the south Okanagan, so does the number of rescued foals.

Theresa Nolet has saved three young horses just this month alone.

Her most recent rescue is a baby colt that was discovered badly injured. He is still recovering from his injuries.

Feral horses in the region have been an ongoing issue.

The animals originate from the Penticton Indian Band (PIB), but have been allowed to roam free.

A recent aerial survey found there are close to 600 horses. Some of them still have owners, while others are considered wild.

The PIB Chief is working with other band members and Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen to come up with solutions to control the feral horse population.
