Rescued wild horses waiting at the quarantine farm to be transported back to Danbe Delta reservation forest of Letea
epa02885647 Two wild horses frolic inside a quarantine farm, near Urleasca village, Braila county, south-eastern Romania, before being relocated back to Danube Delta, 28 August 2011. Fifty four wild horses form Danube Delta's Letea reservation forest were seized by the animal right activists of Vier Pfoten (Four Paws) as they were heading for a slaughter house in May 2011, backed by local police. Now, after three months of quarantine, care and medical treatments received from volunteers, 41 surviving horses are to be relocated back to Letea. The Letea Forest ecosystem is situated in the Danube Delta Biosphere Reservation, between the Chilia and Sulina branches. EPA/ROBERT GHEMENT | Location: URLEASCA, ROMANIA.
