BLM said today that it has requested bids for new short-term holding facilities in Idaho, Nevada and Utah. Capacities of 500 to 10,000 wild horses and burros are desired, according to the news release.
Animals delivered to the corrals will be held temporarily before transfer to off-range pastures or adoption/sale locations across the country.
Proposals will be accepted through November 30.
The construction of a high-capacity animal feeding operation was the subject of a heated debate earlier this year in Laramie County, WY.
