RAWLINS, Wyo. (AP)--The Bureau of Land Management is asking for public comments on a plan to round up wild horses from areas in south-central Wyoming where populations exceed the agency's management levels.
The Rock Springs Field Office of the BLM is taking public comments until April 2.
The agency says a population survey of wild horses in July 2009 found 1,950 wild horses in the Adobe Town and Salt Wells Creek Herd Management Areas.
The agency says the Adobe Town herd should be 610 to 800 wild horses, and the adjacent Salt Wells Creek herd should be 251 to 365.
