LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — A wild horse roundup inside the Nevada Test and Training Range concluded Thursday, and seven horses died as part of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) operation.

Four of the horses that died were put to death because they had conditions that would prevent them from surviving in the wild — three with club feet and one with no teeth. Three other sudden/acute deaths involved two horses with fractured leg bones and one with a broken neck/back. BLM said those horses were humanely euthanized.
