The Bureau of Land Management received more than 9000 comments from the public on the proposed Wild Horse and Burro Management Strategy, so the Bureau will wait to release a final draft of the plan. Many animal rights groups have protested the agency's method of rounding up horses to control the population. Tom Gorey, with the BLM says the groups want them to stop the round-ups. He says the round-up measures have been reviewed and are considered "humane and necessary." Research continues on new ways to control the horses' fertility. When the final draft of the proposed strategy is complete, it will be presented to Congress for further review.
