BLM said yesterday that up to 40 wild burros would be removed from private lands in the Tassi-Gold Butte HA in northwestern Arizona. The gather will be carried out with bait traps and will not be open to public observation, according to the news release.
The HA has no AML and is not managed for wild horses or burros.
Captured animals will be taken to the off-range corrals in Florence, AZ.
Gather stats and daily reports will be posted to this page.
The announcement did not indicate if Arizona was a fence-out state.
