Wild horse transplant

Posted By on Thu, Oct 8, 2009 at 2:40 PM

According to the article, the Bureau of Land Management says the seven preserves—two federally owned and five privately owned—can support 26,600 wild horses and burros of the 37,000 that are currently roaming the range. No news of where the preserves are located exactly or when the proposed transplant would happen.
