LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) - Wild horses and burros will be available
in Lubbock as part of a U.S. Bureau of Land Management adoption
event.
About 70 animals will be available for inspection Thursday at
the Panhandle-South Plains Fairgrounds.
Adoptions begin Friday, with a minimum fee of $125 per animal.
The event runs through Saturday.
Bureau spokesman Paul McGuire told the Amarillo Globe-News that
more than 32,000 wild horses roam agency-managed areas. Reducing
the range population is meant to help support the horse population
and other wildlife.
