WHB Gather Stats for FY 2020

BLM said today that it removed 10,139 wild horses and burros from western rangelands in FY 2020 and placed 6,162 animals into private care through adoptions and sales.

The fiscal year began on October 1, 2019.

There are 52,000 wild horses and burros in off-range corrals and pastures, according to the news release, at a cost of $57 million annually.

The on-range population is now over three times higher than the number of animals the land can support in conjunction with other legally mandated uses.
