Jakes Wash Emergency Roundup Begins Tomorrow

BLM said today that approximately 60 wild horses will be removed from the former HMA, starting August 28, due to lack of water.

The operation will be carried out with bait traps, according to the news release, and will not be open to public observation.

The HA covers 153,663 acres in eastern Nevada.  It was demoted in 2008.  It has no AML because it’s not managed for wild horses.

The state allotment map suggests that it’s subject to permitted livestock grazing.

Captured animals will be taken to the Palomino Valley off-range corrals, about 20 miles north of Sparks, NV.

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

NOTE: If you don’t know the difference between an AUM and an AML, see the Lexicon.
