A story posted this morning by The Grand Junction Daily Sentinel says the animals “had just come off the high country in Nevada.”
The only burros captured recently in the state were taken from the Nevada WHR, according to records maintained by Western Horse Watchers.
The AML for burros in that area is zero but it is not subject to permitted grazing.
The gather page indicated that captured horses would be shipped to the off-range corrals at Palomino Valley but the burros would be transported to Axtell.
The incident concluded on January 3.
