Worland man facing five years for bigamy
By Zach Spadt
WORLAND – Allegedly one wife wasn’t enough.
A Worland man is facing bigamy charges for his marriage to a Worland woman, and charges are pending for another union.
Greg Berti, 44, of Worland, is facing up to five years behind bars, a fine of $5,000 or both for marrying the woman from Worland, and he also allegedly has married women from Cheyenne and California.
Washakie County Circuit Court Judge, Thomas Harrington, ruled Tuesday that enough evidence exists to charge Berti with bigamy in district court.
According to an affidavit of probable cause, Berti married a woman in Cheyenne on Feb. 7, 2014. He allegedly left her without filing for divorce and moved to Worland.
On January 29, Berti allegedly married another woman.

BLM seeks proposals to keep wild horses in pastures
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — The U.S. Bureau of Land Management is
seeking additional homes for potentially thousands of wild horses
rounded up from Western rangelands by asking landowners in a dozen
states to submit proposals to rent out pastures for the animals.
The federal agency currently has contracts with landowners to keep 31,000 wild horses on about 20 off-range pastures in Iowa, Kansas, Montana, Nebraska, Oklahoma and South Dakota. The pastures range in size from 1,000 to 35,000 acres and average 20,000 acres, according to the Bureau of Land Management Wild Horse and Burro Program.
The problem with wild horses on the range is they keep proliferating. They can double their numbers every four years.
Right now, an estimated 49,200 wild horses roam the West, or
22,500 more horses than the bureau’s target population. Regular
roundups are among the control methods.
The Bureau of Land Management adopts out many of the younger rounded-up horses. Others go to wild horse eco-sanctuaries, where people can stop by to look at and learn about the animals.
Off-range pastures are more utilitarian. The landowner agrees to occasional pre-arranged visits by the public and media, but the pastures typically aren’t open to the public.
“We’re kind of renting their pasture to feed the animals. They’re
providing supplemental feeding, and there’s minimal contact with
the animals,” said Debbie Collins, a spokeswoman for the Wild
Horse and Burro Program in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
