People from animal security organizations take care of these wild horses and keep an eye on their well-being. In particular, the members of Four Paws International control the number of wild horses, preventing their extermination, and regulate the birth rate through contraception.
Apart from that, animal security services have to deal with quite a cruel phenomenon: some horses have their front legs tied with iron chains, so they don’t run far. This practice is common among the Romanian population. However, metal chains dig into the animals’ skin, causing them to suffer from unbearable pain. When veterinarian Ovidiu Rosa saw another result of such a brutal hobbling, he decided to free the horse from iron.
