BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — Bureau of Land Management workers have begun trapping mustangs from the Pryor Mountain Wild Horse Range to reduce the size of the famous herd along the Montana-Wyoming border. Agency spokeswoman Kristen Lenhardt said Monday that 40 to 50 mustangs will be removed over the next several months and put up for adoption. The herd is believed to be descended from horses used by Spanish Conquistadors.
