Asian wild horses born in Hortobágy

Local News

This year, 25 foals were born on a 2400-acre, isolated area in Hortobágy. The 210 Asian wild horses living there constitute the world’s largest Przewalski’s horse population.

By the end of the 1960’s, the wild Przelawski’s horses around the world became completely extinct as they were hunted even on the entire area of Mongolia and Djungaria, their original homelands. With the cooperation of the Hortobágy National Park and the Cologne Zoo, the propagation and domestication of this species started in Hortobágy in 1997.
