BLM Returning Horses to Hardtrigger HMA

Forty five wild horses will be released later this month in three separate areas, according to a news release posted today.  One of the releases will be open to public observation.

The Hardtrigger HMA was damaged by the Soda Fire of 2015, which also affected the nearby Sands Basin HMA.


The announcement did not say if the mares will be treated with contraceptives or if the land is subject to permitted livestock grazing.
