A private group working to help Alberta manage its wild horse population says it will only be able to save about one-third of the animals that could be rounded up this month. The province wants up to 60 feral horses captured in an area northwest of Calgary and south of the Red Deer River to keep the size of the herd from growing too large. Bob Henderson of the Wild Horses of Alberta Society says he expects the group will be able to put up 20 captured horses for adoption. The rest will end up going to auction. (The province estimates there are about 880 feral horses in the Rocky Mountain foothills area and says they are damaging grasslands used for livestock grazing and by wildlife such as elk.)
