Pryor Mountain mustang roundup planned for 2012

BILLINGS, Mont. — Dozens of wild mustangs descended from the mounts used by Spanish Conquistadors would be rounded up from their mountain range next year and put up for adoption under a plan announced by federal officials.

The roundup from Pryor Mountain Wild Horse Range would reduce the size of the 150 horse herd to between 90 and 120 animals. The Bureau of Land Management said the roundup, or “gather”, is needed to keep the horses from outgrowing their 38,000-acre range in a remote, arid region along the Montana-Wyoming border.
