BLM said today that another 148 wild horses will be forced off their home range, starting next Monday, with 39 to be returned. Mares released back onto the HMA will be treated with PZP, according to the news release.
The roundup will be open to public observation and will require five days.
Captured animals will be taken to the Palomino Valley Off-Range Corrals about 20 miles north of Sparks, NV.
Gather stats and daily reports can be found on this page, which contains data from the first part of the operation in February.
The roundup will protect herd health, prevent overgrazing of wildlife habitat and address public safety concerns.
It has nothing to do with pubic-lands ranching.
