Marietta Wild Burro Roundup in the Works?

A new project was created in ePlanning yesterday but no documents were posted and there are no opportunities for public comment at this time.

The WBR covers 66,045 acres and the 104 burros allowed by plan require 624 AUMs per year.

The equivalent stocking rate is 0.8 wild horses per thousand acres.

The first opportunity for public involvement will likely be in the scoping phase, which may or may not be announced at the BLM news site.
