Silent auction features wild horses, burros

The Bureau of Land Management and the Pima County Fair have teamed up to help save wild horses and burros.

The federal agency will bring about 20 horses and eight burros to the fair for a silent auction April 24 to 26.

The minimum bid for the critters is $125 each, and any that don’t sell will be available first-come, first-served for the minimum bid, according to a BLM news release.

The animals will be available for previewing at the Pima County Fairgrounds, 11300 S. Houghton Road, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. April 24. BLM will screen potential bidders and issue bidder numbers during previewing.

Bidding begins at 10 a.m. April 25, and winning bidders will have a chance to adopt a second animal for $25. Unsold animals will be available from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. April 26.

All animals must be removed at the time of purchase. For more information, call Mary Pyles at 623-580-5662 or see the Bureau of Land Management Web site at www.blm.gov.

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.

For all of the stories that were archived by the Tucson Citizen newspaper's library in a digital archive between 1993 and 2009, go to Morgue Part 2
