BLM announced today that it had concluded the removal of wild horses from lands outside the Range Creek HMA in east-central Utah. The news release indicated that 92 horses had been gathered but did not indicate if they were on lands falling within the Range Creek HA and if any livestock were present on those lands.
One horse died in the operation but circumstances of the loss were not given.
Captured horses were taken to a contract facility in Axtell, Utah, where they will be evaluated and prepared for adoption.
