RENO, Nev. (AP) - The Bureau of Land Management wants to brainstorm with the public on how to improve the comfort of wild horses and burros at the agency's Palomino Valley adoption center.

Horse advocates have criticized the federal agency for the lack of shade and shelter at the facility 20 miles north of Reno. They claim at least three horses may have died during a recent heat wave that brought triple-digit temperatures for several days.

The agency this summer did install a sprinkler system for the animals.

A workshop is scheduled from 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Aug. 6 at Reno City Hall.

Tours of the Palomino Valley National Wild Horse and Burro Center will be conducted that afternoon from 2-4.
