The Government Will Give You Money To Adopt A Wild Horse

Want $1000 from the federal government? All you have to do is adopt a wild horse.

The Bureau of Land Management is launching an Adoption Incentive Program that will offer up to $1,000 for anyone who adopts a wild horse or burro and gives it a good home.

The agency says the goal is to promote adoption and help reduce the country’s overpopulation of wild horses and burros, which is a problem for public rangelands.
