BLM to Remove Burros Near Lake Havasu City

Fifty wild burros will be the subject of an emergency gather this week north of Lake Havasu City, AZ, due to safety concerns along Highway 95.  Refer to this story, posted this morning by Havasu News.

The burros may be associated with the Havasu HMA, which surrounds the city, or Black Mountain HMA, the southern tip of which appears at the top of the map (blue borders).

The report did not indicate how the roundup would be conducted and if it would be open to public observation.  Captured animals will be taken to a BLM facility in Florence, AZ where they will be prepared for adoption.

A formal announcement from the BLM had not been released at the time of writing.
