Cedar Mountain Gather Ordered Due to Lack of Water

BLM plans to remove 250 horses from the Cedar Mountain HMA in western Utah, according to a news release dated 07/11/18.  A start date for the gather was not provided.  Capture will be effected by water traps.  Public observation not allowed.

Animals removed from the range will be taken to the Wild Horse Facility in Delta, UT, where they will be prepared for adoption.


The HMA covers 411,636 acres and has an AML of 390, for a target population density of 0.95 horses per thousand acres.  Pretty much in line with the national average.  The news release did not indicate whether livestock were present on these lands.  It also stated that the HMA encompassed 197,275 acres.
