Fertility Control Study Approved

BLM issued a Decision Record and Finding of No Significant Impact today for the testing of a contraceptive thought to be effective for three years.

The research will evaluate the efficacy of the vaccine against two oocyte growth factors, and if it can produce long-term infertility from a single dose.

The experiments will be performed on excess wild horses at the Northern Nevada Correctional Center in Carson City, NV.

If successful, the vaccine could help the agency achieve a thriving ecological balance on western rangelands, according to the news release.
