Woman knocked to ground by wild horse after hitting it with shovel


A viral video showed a Maryland beachgoer learning not to mess with nature.

The video was shared on the People of Ocean City Boardwalk Facebook page, and it shows a woman walking up to a wild Assateague horse on the sand and whacking it with a shovel.

The horse quickly bucks and the woman in the video loses her balance, but rolls over and slowly gets up.

People can be heard in the video advising the woman to be careful.

U.S. Park Officials warn visitors not to feed or pet the horses.
