Feds agree to delay Wyoming wild horse roundup (Video)
From: Casper Star Tribune
The U.S. Bureau of Land Management recently announced plans to start removing the horses from lands in the Great Divide Basin, Adobe Town and Salt Wells Creek herd management areas starting Aug. 18.
Lawyers for the federal agency recently filed notice with a federal judge in Wyoming that the agency won’t start the roundup until Sept. 1.
Wild horse preservation groups are challenging the federal agency’s roundup plans, saying the BLM failed to follow federal environmental laws in planning the action.
Delaying the roundup until Sept. 1 will give the groups time to ask a federal judge to order the federal agency not to proceed.
