TRNP Roundup in Progress

The operation will target an unspecified number of youngsters, starting with ten this week, and will continue until NPS personnel believe the population is under control, according to a story posted yesterday by KX News of Bismarck, ND.

The last roundup occurred in 2019.

NPS uses tranquilizer darts to capture the animals.

The original wild horses of TRNP, thought to be descendants of Sitting Bull’s horses, were removed from the park over twenty years ago.  Some were rescued by Leo Kuntz and taken to his ranch near Linton.  He called them Nokotas.
