Wild Horse Adoption In Marshall

Some uniquely American wild horses get a chance to be domesticated, through an adoption program in East Texas. Over the next two days, the Bureau of Land Management will put 85 wild American mustangs up for adoption at the City of Marshall Arena. The bureau regulates around 200 herd areas across Wyoming, Nevada and Oregon, where the horses continue to flourish. Bureau organizers say when herds become too big for the land to support them, animals are removed for adoption.

"Herd management ranges, we call them in the west and we keep a close eye on the population of horses in that area and when they get too numerous either for their own health or the health of the range, we'll go out and conduct a gather, and make those horses available for adoption," says Paul McGuire of the Bureau of Land Management.

The horse adoptions will take place at the City of Marshall Arena. It's off Highway 59, north of Marshall. Adoptions will be 10 a.m to 5 p.m Friday and Saturday.

    The Texas Department of Transportation is looking to help make traveling easier for travelers in Tyler.
