Helicopter Ops Ended at Little Bookcliffs WHR

The gather is complete according to a report posted yesterday by The Daily Sentinel in Grand Junction, CO, although the BLM has not issued a news release confirming that.

“The agency undertook the operation because of concerns about heavy grazing pressure by the horses, a problem exacerbated by drought.”

The wild horse population at the beginning of the roundup was 190, barely large enough to maintain genetic viability of the herd.
