ROCK SPRINGS, Wyo. (AP) — The Bureau of Land Management is proposing to remove about 1,000 wild horses from three herd management areas in southwest Wyoming in order to comply with population level objectives.

The BLM plans to remove 210 horses from Adobe Town, 584 from Salt Wells Creek and 235 from Great Divide Basin.

Kimberlee Foster, of the Rock Springs BLM field office, says the gathered horses will go to the Rock Springs Holding Facility where they will be put up for adoption.

The BLM is accepting public comment until April 4 on its horse roundup plan.
