LAKE HAVASU CITY, Ariz. (AP) - An Arizona county is drafting regulations to stop people from feeding wild burros near the roadways.

Today’s News-Herald reports (https://bit.ly/2aTWw0K ) that the Mohave County Supervisors unanimously agreed Monday to ask the county attorney to draft an ordinance making it illegal for people to feed the animals near the road.

Supervisor Steve Moss has previously met with Bureau of Land Management officials to address growing burro herd sizes. Moss says the burros are posing a public safety concern because they wander near roadways and can become traffic hazards.
