Wild horse roundup planned in Wyoming


Associated Press - October 7, 2019

WORLAND, Wyo. (AP) - U.S. officials plan to round up hundreds of wild horses in northern Wyoming.

 The U.S. Bureau of Land Management announced Tuesday the roundup will happen on or around Oct. 17 in a remote area 35 miles northwest of Worland.

 BLM officials say the target population is 100-230 horses but the herd has grown to around 700. The federal agency plans to round up about 600 horses.

 The horses will either be available for adoption through the BLM Wild Horse and Burro Adoption Program or sent to privately run pastures.

 BLM officials say about 72,000 wild horses and 16,000 wild burros inhabit the West, exceeding the goal population by over 61,000.
