Bait-trapping began 06/28/18, per BLM news release dated 07/05/18. Removal was prompted by insufficient water and high temperatures. Affected area is near Fenner, CA, on the south side of I-40. Captured burros will be taken to the Ridgecrest WHB Corrals for adoption.
There are no AMLs for herd areas, they’re not managed for WHB due to lack of resources. Yet the burros are there. Gather stats can be found on this page.
