A big project to round up wild horses in southern Utah is now underway.

The Bureau of Land Management is working to remove excess horses in Iron and Beaver counties.

The animals are exceeding federal guidelines, leaving little food and water for the herd.

The removed horses will be available for adoption.

Officials said any animals not adopted will be cared for in long-term pastures.
