Wild Horse Roundup Ends Up In Court

The U.S. Forest Service rounded up hundreds of wild horses in the Modoc National Forest back in October.  Too many horses and too few resources for them, says the agency. 
 
It plans to sell the horses, with older (10 and up) animals going for as little as a dollar apiece. 
 
It's the lack of apparent restrictions that worries groups like American Wild Horse Campaign.  The group and others believe the horses could be slaughtered.  So they recently went to court to stop the sale.  Suzanne Roy of the wild horse group joins us with details.
