B-L-M Rounds Up 1,300 Wild Horses

Rawlins, WY – The U-S Bureau of Land Management says it has rounded up more than 1,300 wild horses from southwestern Wyoming this fall. The roundups were conducted in October and November. They're part of the B-L-M's continuing effort to cut Wyoming's wild horse population in half in order to fulfill an agreement with the state. The horses were gathered from areas in the agency's Rock Springs, Rawlins and Lander field office. Officials say the latest roundups will reduce Wyoming's wild horse population to a more appropriate level of around 3,200 horses.
