COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) – A controversial follow is within the crosshairs of animal rights activists.
On September 12, the Bureau of Land Administration (BLM) concluded the biggest roundup of untamed horses in Colorado historical past. Greater than 600 horses had been faraway from the Sand Wash Basin in Moffat County as a consequence of overpopulation and shortage of sources, in keeping with the BLM.
These horses are actually being put up for adoption. However wild horse advocates and elected officers in Colorado and throughout the western area have criticized elements of the roundup, and are calling for reforms to the adoption program that may topic the horses to being offered to slaughter. The BLM maintains that the security of the animals and the safety of sources is the best precedence.
Watch the story above for an in-depth look.
