SALT LAKE CITY -- The Bureau of Land Management says it has moved more than 100 horses from a muddy holding center following abuse allegations by an animal welfare organization.
BLM moved 108 horses from the Salt Lake Wild Horse and Burro Center this week to a holding facility in Gunnison in central Utah.
In a report last week, the agency dismissed allegations of abuse but said the center should be kept at a reduced capacity during the winter and early spring due to muddy conditions that prevent horses from lying down and make it difficult for them to stand up.
An investigation was triggered last month after the Cloud Foundation released a video of horses struggling to move in mud.
On Tuesday the BLM said it will move another 100 horses next week.
