Feds’ wild horses now roaming Powerball winner’s land
October 20, 2016
As an illustration of the lengths the federal government must now go to manage all the wild horses under its care, it doesn't get much more telling than this: In South Dakota, a Powerball jackpot winner is now getting paid to let the government's horses roam his land.
On Tuesday, officials of the U.S. Bureau of Land Management showed off the roughly 50 square miles of grassland where a herd of 917 newly transferred wild horses will graze for years to come.
