New Mexico to Manage Wild Horses at Local Level?

State lawmakers are working on legislation that will give local governments the power to deal with wild horses as they see fit, according to a story posted yesterday by The Santa Fe New Mexican.

The bill would not include wild horses that fall under federal oversight.

One of its sponsors said he sees the issue as a “county problem” for which local officials should have clear guidance on what they can do about the animals.
