American Wild Horse Campaign
Mares with their foals being released back into the wild after a roundup in 2018. Advocates say the roundups are traumatizing and lead to many horses being sold to slaughter. The American Wild Horse Campaign has been promoting the use of birth-control darts for years; now, they have research they say supports that approach.

KDNK's Morgan Neely has Friday's news, including details on Eagle County sheriff's deputies fatally shooting a man in Edwards earlier this week. Also, state lawmakers want to add more driver education requirements for minors getting behind the wheel for the first time — even though older drivers are more than twice as likely to kill people on the roads compared to younger drivers. And, new data from a wild horse activist group shows the success of a fertility-control program in our region, while human rights observers say women's rights are the canary in the coalmine for democratic societies. Meanwhile, Moffat County wants to be part of the Colorado Mountain College system, state legislators are examining a proposal to study worker transitions from one industry to another, and health officials in our region are continuing to urge people to get their homes tested for radon.

Morgan is KDNK's News Director. He comes to KDNK with public radio passion and experience. He was a news host, reporter, and opps guy at APR and also worked with Pitkin County for a couple of years. He says that getting back to public radio and reporting is where he wants to be.
