USFS Ends Tribal Horse Gather

Over 500 horses from the Fort McDermitt Paiute and Shoshone Tribe were removed from public lands in northern Nevada earlier this month, according to a report published 12/12/18 by KOLO News in Reno.  They were returned to their owners.

The USFS said in a news release that the horses were competing with livestock and wildlife for forage and were damaging ecosystems, fences and stock-watering facilities.

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