Dry Conditions Force Wild Horse Roundup

From Times Wire Reports

Drought conditions are forcing the emergency gathering of more than 1,000 wild horses from the northern Nevada range, the Bureau of Land Management said.

About 600 horses will be taken from the Little Owyhee Herd Management Area north of Winnemucca near the Idaho state line, said BLM spokeswoman Maxine Shane in Reno.

"They're in good shape right now, but they won't be if we wait," Shane said.
