Does the wild horse population in Iron County need to be controlled? By law, can the herd be reduced?

County officials want to round up some of the horses this week and put them up for adoption, but opponents say such action would violate federal law.

On Tuesday at 12:15 p.m., Suzanne Roy of the American Wild Horse Preservation Campaign, Tribune outdoor editor Brett Prettyman and others join Jennifer Napier-Pearce to talk about the proposed roundup and balancing the grazing needs of wild horses as well as ranch livestock.
