The S.D. Animal Industry Board, at the request of Dewey and Ziebach counties, is asking the Fourth Circuit Court to transfer ownership of horses from the International Society for the Protection of Mustangs and Burros (ISPMB) at Lantry to Fleet of Angels of Evans, CO and Habitat for Horses of Hitchcock, TX.
At a Dec. 12 public meeting conducted via teleconference, the Animal Industry Board (AIB) voted unanimously to file a motion in court, seeking the transfer of ownership.
A hearing on the motion is set for Friday, Jan. 27 in Fourth Circuit Court in Dupree, before Judge Michael Day.
