You may remember a story that we did in February called "Wild Horses of the Flint Hills." It was a story of thousands of wild mustangs which were roaming almost free in vast ranches in the Flint Hills near Cassoday, Kansas. They originally came from the open ranges of the West and they were brought here because of over crowding. They are managed by the United States Bureau of Land Management (BLM).
When we were there in February, the horses were all looking healthy--even a little plump. And now, 80 of them are dead.
