Fifteenmile Roundup to Occur Later This Year

BLM said today that the number of wild horses in the Fifteenmile HMA, northwest of Worland, WY, would be reduced from nearly 700 to around 100 this fall, the point at which the HMA can support the horses and other mandated uses of the land (privately owned sheep in this case).

Horses that have moved onto private and state lands will also be removed, according to the news release.

The HMA intersects five grazing allotments, according to the EA, with 3,370 AUMS per year allocated to sheep (60%) and 2,300 AUMs per year allocated to the horses (40%).
