ProPublica Investigates Horse Adoption System

A Colorado man has single handedly adopted 1,700 horses from the federal Bureau of Land Management's wild horse adoption system, but no one knows where a lot of those horses ended up. Some suspect he has sold those horses for slaughter, which is illegal. The investigative new site ProPublica looked at what might have happened to the horses and the overburdened wild horse roundup and adoption system. We'll talk with Dave Philipps, ProPublica's reporter, about the investigation and what could have happened to the horses in question.
