BLM Seeks Off-Range Corrals

Today BLM requested proposals for off-range holding facilities in western Nevada and southwestern Idaho that could accommodate 500 to 3,500 wild horses and burros.

The animals would be taken there (after removal from their home range) in preparation for transfer to off-range pastures or adoption and sale events around the county.

Bids will be accepted through April 9.

The current population of horses and burros on public lands in the western U.S. is three times higher than the number the land can sustainably support in balance with wildlife and other uses of the land (code words for privately owned livestock).
