BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — The Bureau of Land Management says at least 38 wild horses captured from the Pryor Mountains will be sold at auction Sept. 8.
The horses were captured this summer in an effort to thin the herd and prevent overgrazing at the Pryor Mountain National Horse Range along the Montana-Wyoming border.
Fourteen geldings, 20 females and four foals will be offered at the competitive bid adoption at the Britton Springs Corrals north of Lovell.
The BLM is still seeking to capture up to six more horses from the Pryors this summer. Those also may be included in the sale.
Minimum bid for each animal is $125.
