A plan relying on equine abattoirs as a means to reduce the expanding wild horse population has been rejected by the bureau for land management.

From the LA Times:

Instead, the agency plans to give mares birth control in hopes of diminishing the need for controversial horse roundups, Bob Abbey said at the Summit of the Horse conference in Las Vegas. The BLM, he said, also will continue promoting adoption and seeking locations to place captured horses other than its holding pens.

As previously reported, Kentucky has it’s own problems with loose horses.
