After months of public pressure and political backlash, the Tonto National Forest will permanently drop all plans to round up and remove nearly 100 free-roaming horses near the Salt River.

The announcement comes about four months after the Forest Service delayed its original plans in August. The roundups could have commenced Dec. 18, but the Forest Service will officially withdraw its impound notice on Friday, according to Tonto National Forest spokeswoman Carrie Templin.
