Theodore Roosevelt National Park To Keep Wild Horses

(Medora, ND) — It’s official – the wild horses at Theodore Roosevelt National Park are here to stay. Senator John Hoeven announced the National Park Service’s decision to keep the horses on Thursday, which comes after a long-lasting debate over the issue. Those who wanted to keep the horses in the park pointed out their historical significance and importance for tourism, while those against keeping them claimed the horses were causing damage to the local environment. The National Parks Service says the herd will be managed to support genetic diversity among the horses and preserve the park’s natural resources.
