No wild horse roundups in Colorado this summer

Posted: Updated:

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (AP) - The U.S. Bureau of Land Management will not be gathering wild horses in Colorado this summer.

The Denver Post reports (http://dpo.st/1kr4uYx ) that Colorado is close to its targeted population on public lands.

Colorado has about 780 wild horses in four Western Slope management areas. All are within the limits set for a sustainable herd size.

The BLM's recently released roundup schedule shows that 2,400 wild horses will be gathered in other western states this summer. The largest gathers will take place in Wyoming where 1,535 horses will be rounded up.

The BLM is removing fewer wild horses and burros this summer because of budget constraints and overflowing holding pens.
