Groups sue to stop Colo. wild horse roundup

DENVER — Animal advocacy groups are seeking an injunction to stop a roundup of wild horses in northwestern Colorado planned to start Monday.

The Texas-based Habitat for Horses, New York-based American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and the Colorado-based Cloud Foundation filed a lawsuit Thursday in U.S. District Court in New York. The groups claim the plan by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management to gather an estimated 138 horses violates environmental laws and the federal Wild Horses Act.

It wasn’t clear today when a hearing might be scheduled.

Colorado BLM spokesman David Boyd says the horses that will be rounded up are outside a 190,000-acre area of public land designated for wild horses.
