Attorneys for the Central Oregon Wild Horse Coalition and the federal government appeared today before a federal judge regarding a plan by the Forest Service to reduce the AML and bring the current population in line therewith, according to a story posted today by Courthouse News.
The judge adjourned the hearing after two hours, stating he would take the matter under advisement and issue an opinion at a later date.
Removal of wild horses from the WHT has been delayed by equipment problems and the lack of an adequate off-range holding facility.
A government attorney said that horses not sold or adopted would be euthanized.
