BLM said today that over 400 wild horses will be removed from the Delamar Mountains and Meadow Valley Mountains HAs, starting on or about December 6, due to lack of food and water.
The operation will be carried out with helicopters, according to the news release, and will be open to public observation.
The two former HMAs were zeroed out in 2008 and have no AMLs. They are part of the Caliente Complex in eastern Nevada.
Both are subject to permitted livestock grazing.
Captured animals will be taken to the off-range corrals in Bruneau, ID.
Gather stats and daily reports will be posted to this page.
Two tanker pilots died in a midair collision while fighting a fire in the area last July.
