Decision Reached in Surprise Complex Gather Plan

Alternative 1, the Proposed Action, has been approved for implementation, subject to a 30-day appeal period, according to a Decision Record signed on May 27.

The event was not announced on BLM’s news site.

Over the next ten years, the new resource enforcement plan will

  • Remove horses and burros as expeditiously as feasible to reach low AML
  • Treat any mares returned to the Complex with fertility control
  • Adjust sex ratios to 60 percent males and 40 percent females
  • Conduct maintenance gathers if the population exceeds AML

Six HMAs are affected, as described in Section 1.2 of the Final EA.
