MORE BUREAU OF LAND MANAGEMENT WILD HORSE ROUNDUPS

 

THE MOST RECENT INCLUDED 887 MUSTANGS IN ELKO COUNTY, NEV.

While I recently reported on 1000 wild horses being rounded up in California today, I just received information that the U.S. Bureau of Land Management just completed their second big wild horse roundup in northern Nevada in recent weeks. They removed 887 mustangs from the range in Elko County.

 

The agency reported that horses were gathered Sept. 19-Oct. 2 in the Antelope Valley and Goshute herd management areas where their numbers were supposedly eight times what is considered the appropriate management level.

 

Also, on Oct. 4, the Bureau also completed the removal of 873 horses from the Owhyee complex in Elko and Humboldt counties near the Idaho line.

 

Horse advocates continue to be greatly upset, saying the Bureau of Land Management exaggerates the impact of mustangs while ignoring the impact of livestock, owned by individuals, that greatly outnumber the number of horses grazing on Federal land.

According to an AP article, the recent animals captured were taken to an agency corral in Fallon, where they will be prepared for adoption or public sale, which are certain to include slaughterhouse buyers.
