ELY, Nev. ” The U.S. Bureau of Land Management is removing up to 130 wild horses from an area in southeast Nevada because it says the animals are damaging private property and pose a safety threat to motorists.

The BLM says horses have migrated into residential neighborhoods north of Caliente because of a lack of food and water.

Officials say they are damaging property and creating a safety hazard to drivers on U.S. 93.

A roundup began Monday.

Officials say captured horses will be taken to a BLM facility in Delta, Utah and made available for adoption or sale.
