Students sit at a desk | Still from SoCal Connected's "Under Pressure"

Wild Horses

UPDATE: Since our story first aired in February 2010, the Bureau of Land Management has proposed reforms to the way it addresses wild horses. It plans to issue more birth control to mares and round up fewer wild horses. The Bureau has also stated goals to ramp up adoption of wild horse and burros.

The noble steed, running free on the open range. The wild horse is a potent symbol of the American West. But as correspondent John Larson reports, wild horses are so adept at survival, they're over-running government land, and are being rounded up and confined in corrals, instead of roaming free.
