Wild Horses

  • Rocky Mountain Community Radio, Aspen Public Radio’s Halle Zander reports on a house roundup in northwest Colorado. The BLM recently started rounding up wild horses on land between Rangely and Meeker. The ongoing round-up, or what the BLM calls a gather, was originally set for September. But BLM officials announced in June they were moving the event up two months. The BLM cited the poor condition of the wild horses, and the high numbers of horses roaming in the 190-thousand-acre Piceance-East Douglas Herd Management Area. The federal agency is seeking to remove 1,050 wild horses from the area. But wild horse advocates say the horses are not in poor condition, and that cattle are causing more problems on the range than the horses. The Mountain West News Bureau's Emma Gibson reports on climate change and cannabis.
