BLM Concludes Piute Gather

Bait trapping operations, which began 06/28/18, have ended, according to a BLM news release published earlier today.  Forty one burros were removed from the Piute Mountain Herd Area, with no fatalities reported.

Recent precipitation should be sufficient to support the remaining animals, which will be monitored by BLM staff.

Gather stats and daily reports can be found on this page.

Herd areas have no AML and are not managed for WHB, but this may be a case where the BLM has bent the rules a little to help these animals out.
