Groups Seek Solution to Too Many Wild Horses

Groups Seek Solution to Too Many Wild Horses

SEATTLE (AP) - Representatives from Indian tribes, federal agencies and other groups plan to meet this week in Las Vegas to discuss what to do about too many wild horses in the West. Wyoming legislator Sue Wallis is a member of United Horsemen, a nonprofit group organizing the meeting.

She said that she favors developing a plant where horses can be slaughtered for human consumption. She says that's a humane solution to the problem of thousands of wild horses overgrazing and destroying rangeland.

That idea, however, faces strong opposition. The U.S. horse slaughter industry was shut down in 2007 by animal-rights activists. Since then, tribes and range managers say, the number of horses has grown to thousands more than the land can support.
