Burros and mustangs adopted along California Central Coast
Residents of California’s Central Coast provided homes for eight wild burros and three mustangs, when the BLM brought its wild horse and burro adoption program to Santa Maria Nov. 18 and 19.
Two of the adopted burros will have a prominent position in the community, taking up residence as part of an environmental education exhibit in the city’s Los Flores Ranch Park. City Parks and Recreation Director Alex Posada said the animals, yet to be named, will be cared for by city parks staff and volunteers. They will be part of continuing efforts to inform the city’s youth about natural resources and the environment.
Wild horses offered at the event were from the Twin Peaks Herd Management Area along the California-Nevada border northeast of Susanville.
