Wanted: Homes for surplus wild horses that will be rounded up at North Dakota's Theodore Roosevelt National Park and offered for sale.


Park rangers plan to remove about 90 young horses from the herd of about 165 after a roundup planned for Oct. 19 and 20, with an auction on Oct. 23.

Horse advocates are spreading the word in the hope that all of the removed horses will be bought by ranchers or horse fanciers -- and not by "kill buyers" who will send them to canning factories.
