 Wyo group plans horse rescue operation

A Wyoming state lawmaker says she's part
of a group planning a program to care for unwanted horses, but that some could be humanely killed as a last resort.
Republican state Rep. Sue Wallis of Recluse said Saturday the
nonprofit United Horsemen's Front would accept horses from
individuals or law-enforcement agencies.
Wallis says all horses will be checked by veterinarians. Those that qualify would be rehabilitated.
Wallis says horses that can't be rehabilitated would be killed in a slaughter operation, which was reported Saturday by the Wyoming Tribune-Eagle.
She says the group is working with Temple Grandin, a professor of animal science at Colorado State University who specializes in humane treatment of livestock.
