Silent auction features wild horses, burros

Citizen Staff Writer

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.



Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
