CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - The Nevada Department of Agriculture wants to hear from nonprofit organizations on developing a wild horse management plan for the Virginia Range southeast of Reno.

The agency on Monday said its goal is a cooperative agreement with an organization to manage and sustain the horses at healthy levels while preserving public safety.

Horses in the Virginia Range are not federally protected wild horses because they are on state or private land.

Earlier this year the department signed an agreement with the California based Return to Freedom Inc. Giving the advocacy group first dibs on horses gathered from the Virginia Range to protect them from slaughter.

Now, the state wants to hear from private groups on how to manage the animals in the wild.
