Wild Horse Gathers and Captivity

To limit wild horse numbers the animals are herded by helicopter to a 'judas' horse that leads them into a trap. Then they are transported by truck to a processing and holding facilty, and eventually auctioned to the public for adoption.

Helicopter herds wild horses toward trained 'judas horse' (with rope and halter) that leads them into trap. Gather near Maybell, CO. 9-28-05.
