69 of 80 wild horses and burros find new homes at Tulare adoption
Southern San Joaquin Valley residents flocked to the Tulare County Fairgrounds Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 8 and 9, and many of them left with a new family member -- a wild horse or burro. The occasion was a Bureau of Land Management Wild Horse and Burro Adoption that offered 62 mustangs and 18 burros for public adoption. At the end of the weekend, 69 of the available 80 animals were adopted.
