DICKINSON, N.D. (AP) — Wild horses are slated to be rounded up at Theodore Roosevelt National Park in western North Dakota.

The Dickinson Press reports that the roundup will take place Monday and Tuesday, depending on the weather.

The park uses the roundups to control the herd size. About 100 of the horses will be sold at public auction in Wishek on Sept. 28.

The park has about 200 wild horses at present.

The park maintains a demonstration herd of what it calls feral horse to commemorate the wild horses that roamed the badlands when Theodore Roosevelt ranched in the area during the 1880s.
