MODOC COUNTY, Calif. - A controversial round-up of 1,000 wild horses in Modoc County, turns out some could wind up being sold for slaughter.


This is happening despite an appeal from Senator Dianne Feinstein.


The U.S. Forest Service is overseeing the roundup.


The land is supposed to have 200 to 400 horses but the population has nearly 4,000 of them and growing.


Which means less food for other wildlife.


Younger horses will have 30 days to be adopted or sold, while older horses’ futures are uncertain.


The Forest Service is asking anyone if they have land to hold some of the horses, to give them a call.

Cooler and cloudier today, record heat expected today, then the chance for high fire danger or showers next week.
