CASPER, Wyo. — The U.S. Bureau of Land Management is investigating the shooting deaths of five federally protected wild horses in south-central Wyoming.
BLM spokeswoman Sarah Beckwith says all the horses were found dead over the past few months on public land in the remote Red Desert area.
Beckwith tells KTWO-AM that three horses were found in early November and another two last month.
She says she doesn't have any details on how the horses were shot.
Wild horses are protected a federal law.
Beckwith says the BLM is offering a $1,000 reward for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of those involved.
