LDS Church wealth, Utah horse sanctuary and unusual wildfire prevention tactics


According to a new report, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is on its way to becoming a trillion-dollar faith. A Utah sanctuary is rescuing horses from becoming human food. And Utah lawmakers gave millions to support a private landowner’s unusual wildfire prevention method. Does it work?
