I visited a wild horse gather in Northwestern Colorado this year. The Bureau of Land Management is tasked with thinning herds in order to keep the horses healthy, and keep the land from being overgrazed. Animal welfare activists are against the roundups, saying they terrorize the animals and the horses often end up in holding pastures for the rest of their lives. This was the first story in a two-part series that aired in September of 2011.
Fellows in KDMC training programs go on to produce media- and technology-rich stories at their home publications.
