LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) More than 50 wild horses and burros will be available for adoption during a three-day event in northeastern Kansas.
The Lawrence Journal-World reports the adopt-a-thon begins Thursday at the Douglas County Fairgrounds in Lawrence.
The U.S. Bureau of Land Management holds adoptions around the country for animals removed from public lands to maintain healthy herds and range lands.
Competitive bidding begins at 2 p.m. for buyers hoping to claim the best horses and burros. Adoptions will then take place Thursday evening, all day Friday and from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday. There will also be an auction Friday afternoon of two saddle-trained mustangs.
