The Associated Press reports:
BILLINGS, Mont. — Dozens of wild mustangs from the Pryor Mountain Wild Horse Range along the Montana-Wyoming border are slated to be removed this year to reduce the size of the famous herd.
The federal Bureau of Land Management on Wednesday announced approval of a roundup that would reduce the 170-horse herd to 120 or fewer animals.
The agency says the roundup is needed to keep the horses from overgrazing their 38,000-acre range — the nation’s first wild horse preserve.
