BLM Hosting Wild Horse and Burro Adoption in Michigan

The U.S. Department of the Interior, Bureau of Land Management-Eastern States will be hosting a horse and burro adoption event this month in Michigan. More than 60 horses and a few burros will be available.

Animals will be available for viewing May 18, 2007, from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the Midland County Fairgrounds, Midland, Mich. Adoptions will be held May 19 from 8:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m.

The BLM gathers some horses and burros each year to control the population and offers them to qualified individuals for adoption to help maintain an ecological balance on western rangelands.

Gentled wild horses in the United States are used for a variety of riding disciplines. They are noted for their endurance, sure-footedness and intelligence. Burros are great companion animals and are sometimes used by farmers for predator control.
