Theodore Roosevelt NP to restart birth control program for feral horses

FARGO — Theodore Roosevelt National Park rangers will resume a birth control program with the goal of eliminating the need for roundups to remove wild horses to keep the herd from overpopulating.


The park superintendent, Wendy Hart Ross, notified park horse “interest stakeholders” that about 20 mares will receive booster doses of a birth control drug the park has used experimentally to control the population of the herd.
