History of Beatys Butte HMA

In the 1930s and 1940s, an estimated 2,500 to 3,000 wild horses roamed the area, according to the discussion at the bottom of page 38 in a 2019 EA for resource enforcement actions in the HMA.

By the mid-1950s, fewer than 50 horses remained.

The EA does not say how that happened or who was responsible.
