CHEYENNE, WYO. — A federal appeals court has ruled that the U.S. Bureau of Land Management violated the law when it removed more than 1,200 wild horses from southwest Wyoming in 2014.
The ruling Friday by the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver prompted the BLM to call off a wild horse roundup scheduled to begin in the same area next week. The BLM had planned to gather about 500 horses.
