Round Prairie open range, horses often loose

September 9, 2018
Linda Corson sent in the following alert: I would like to pass on a warning to all people traveling on Highway 95 in the Round Prairie area.

It has been posted as open range.

There is a family with 20 or so horses that are not contained and whose horses have been on the highway at night running loose. Be careful. The sheriff’s office has been notified.

In an open range area, which includes much of Boundary County, in the event of a vehicle vs. livestock collision, the driver of the vehicle is considered at fault, and must pay the livestock owner for cost or treatment.

To see maps of range status in Boundary county, visit the clerk's office at the Boundary County Courthouse.
