Wild horses win reprieve

Times Wire Reports

The U.S. Bureau of Land Management will round up fewer wild horses and try to shuffle funds within the agency to hold off killing large numbers of the animals to control herds and spiraling costs.

Deputy Director Henri Bisson said maintaining the wild horse and burro program for another year would allow a search for possible solutions and let “cooler heads prevail.” About 33,000 roam the open range in 10 Western states.
