SHINGLETOWN, Calif. -

A young horse rescued from a Bureau of Land Management (BLM) holding facility is slowly improving. The foal, named Honey Bandit, is no longer hooked up to an IV, and his caretaker says his health is improving every single day.

Back in August, Honey Bandit was part of a wild horse round-up conducted by BLM, and was placed into a holding facility near Susanville. BLM staff says less than 24 hours after being placed into the facility, they noticed the foal was suffering from severe starvation, and had been bitten by other horses nearly a hundred times.

Palomino Armstrong, of Shingletown, adopted the horse from the facility and is currently working to help the foal recover. Donations to help pay for Honey Bandit's medical bills are being accepted. To learn more, please click here.
