TWIN FALLS, Idaho – Federal officials are offering a $500 reward for information leading to the prosecution of whoever removed a large sign identifying a wild horse herd area in southwestern Idaho.

The U.S. Bureau of Land Management in a news release Wednesday says the 12-foot sign posted at a remote intersection noted the location of the Saylor Creek Wild Horse Herd Management Area.

The agency says it places signs at strategic locations in the desert to identify features and roads.

The agency says it first noticed the sign missing in mid-June.
