Mustangs to Be Removed from Eastern Nevada Starting Today

BLM announced this morning that up to 100 wild horses would be gathered from the Caliente HA Complex, Eagle HMA and Silver King HMA starting today.  All three areas were the subjects of roundups last year, although Caliente was blocked by legal action.

Operations will not be open to public observation.

The free-roaming animals are crossing roadways and damaging private property, according to the news release, which failed to mention that Nevada is a fence-out state.

The announcement did not say if the removal was authorized on an emergency basis.

Gather stats and daily reports will be posted to this page.
