New Gather Plan for Nevada WHR Approved

BLM announced today the signing of a Decision Record authorizing certain wild horse management actions in the Nevada WHR over a ten-year period, subject to a 30-day appeal period.

The approved action (Alternative 1) features roundups, fertility control, sex ratio skewing and castration.  Refer to Section 2.1 in the EA.

The WHR is in the northern portion of the Nevada Test and Training Range, covering roughly 1.3 million acres of public lands withdrawn for military use.  As such, there is no public access to the area, including hunting, camping and livestock grazing.

The DR and EA were combined into one file and posted with other project documents.
