FOUR PAWS has been continuing its birth control programme for wild horses in the  Letea area of Romania, with a new session of immuno-contraceptive vaccinations. Between December 2014 and January 2015, FOUR PAWS Romania’s specialist veterinary team tranquilised and vaccinated 22 mares and re-vaccinated 16 mares out of 100 animals, which were already previously immunized last year.

Recently, the Danube Delta Protected Area  Administration (ARBDD) offered its complete support for the FOUR PAWS project. Depending on the results, they intend to use it as a best practice example for how to manage the rest of the wild horse population in the Danube Delta. Upon ARBDD’s request, the National Administration of Forests (Romsilva) allowed the  FOUR PAWS team to access in the recently fenced Letea Forest,  where some of the horses remained.

The local horse population made it through the first two months of winter in good conditions,  with FOUR PAWS vets assessing their health as good in general.

According to an aerial census that took place in April 2014, the Letea area is inhabited by approximately 500 wild horses. The census will be updated in the coming weeks.

The Divine Masculine

DIVINE MASCULINE - Noun - represents a spiritual, psychological, archetypal ideal—the best and most inspiring, elevating, and restorative aspects of masculine expression and manifestation in the universe. “He”—along with the Divine Feminine—exists on a transpersonal, universal level that manifests through an individual’s psyche and becomes thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors.
