"BLM Will Pay You $1,000 To Adopt A Wild Horse"

"The Bureau of Land Management is offering people $1,000 if they’ll adopt a wild horse.

The agency says more than 80,000 wild horses and burros are on rangelands across the West right now. The animals can damage rangeland and when their populations are high some of them starve.

The BLM captures the animals and keeps them in corrals, but some of the less feral ones get adopted out. \"
