In case you missed this morning’s Fargo Forum!
From Theodore Roosevelt National Park:
No horses will be removed from the park until the management plan has been adopted.
“We’re going to hold on anything until we get through our management plan,” said Maureen McGee-Ballinger, deputy superintendent. “So, currently we don’t have any plans for spring,” when horse roundups usually occur.
Besides removing horses, the park service uses a contraceptive drug to control the herd’s population. Colorado State University was conducting research on the drug, administered by shooting mares with a dart, but is no longer involved in the program, she said.
