For the past 74 years, Fort Polk horses have roamed the territory, and now the military believes these wild horses could be a potential danger to the soldiers.

Mary Brocato, an activist involved in the plight of wild horses on the Fort Polk territory, gives us some insight on what people want to see happen to these horses.
