The Wild Horse is an icon of the American West. As such they were protected under the Horse and Burro Act in 1971. 43 years later that very protection may be one of the biggest threats to Wild Horses.
This week the program looks at the Wild Horse program administered by the BLM and the challenges that land managers face following rules, regulations and laws that have been put in place to protect Wild Horses. We also met with County representatives who are frustrated by the issues created by the overpopulation of Wild Horse herds. The issues on the ground affect a number of users of both Public and Private Lands.
Tune into the program this Sunday at 8:30 am on ABC4UTAH to see the discussion. Or look it up on our You Tube Channel: (May not be uploaded until Sunday Morning)
