Another Devil’s Garden Roundup Starts Next Week

The Forest Service will gather and remove 600 wild horses from the Devil’s Garden Plateau WHT, beginning on September 15, according to an announcement posted today.  The incident marks the fourth year in a row that helicopters have pushed them off their home range in favor of privately owned livestock.

Last year, 506 animals were removed.

The operation will be open to limited public observation.

The AML is 402 and the pre-gather population is thought to be 1,962.

The destination of captured animals was not stated in the news release but they will probably be taken to the Double Devil Corrals and BLM’s off range holding facility at Litchfield.

A link to the gather stats and daily reports was not provided.
