Feds plan roundup for 3,500 wild horses, burros
Written byPAUL FOY, Associated Press
Federal officials plan to round up thousands of wild horses and burros across six Western states starting Monday.
The roundups will take place through February on drought-stricken range lands in Idaho, New Mexico, Nevada, Oregon, Utah and Wyoming.
Contractors for the Bureau of Land Management will use helicopters plus bait- and water-trapping methods to corral 3,500 wild horses and burros, officials said.
In addition, more than 900 other horses will be captured for birth control injections and returned to range lands.VIEW ORIGINAL ARTICLE
