what are the main predators of the wild horses and feral horse?
- 1 decade agoFavourite answer
The predators of the wild horses are mountain lions, bobcats, coyotes, and bears. These predators prey upon the old, the sick, and colts or foals. Despite this fact, the horses have survived.
Historically wolves were successful predators of feral horses but they have little impact today because of their low numbers and restricted range. While predation has been reported on several feral horse populations, it is considered to be incidental or uncommon. In the Montgomery Pass Wild Horse Territory in central California, however, Turner, Wolfe and Kirkpatrick (1992) found that while there was no evidence of mountain lions preying on adult horses, their predation limited the growth of the population by reducing foal survival rate.

Bengal tigers. Also Siberian tigers. Oh, and full-grown male African lions. All of them have very powerful hindquarters. Perhaps you should go into your bedroom alone and think about it?
