Approximately 250 horses will be offered for adoption this weekend, according to a story posted yesterday by the Herald and News of Klamath Falls, OR. They have probably been hand-picked for the event.
An advocacy group argued that the adoption should be cancelled due to an outbreak of pigeon fever that could spread to domestic horses.
Another 650 horses were taken to the BLM Litchfield Corrals where they will be placed into an adoption program that has been flooded by roughly 12,000 horses and burros already gathered from western rangelands in 2018.
A roundup of similar size is planned for 2019.
