BLM to Assist NPS in Death Valley Roundup

The incident will begin tomorrow, according to a news release dated April 22, with up to 490 burros gathered from three HAs on the west side of the park.  The removal goal was not specified but will likely be identical.

Refer to the maps in Appendix B of the project documents for the arrangement.

Helicopters will push the burros into the traps “at a slow pace” with “care and compassion” and the operation will be open to public observation.

Gather stats and daily reports will be posted to this page, which does not appear at the site for gathers and removals in California.

Captured animals will be taken to the off-range corrals at Ridgecrest.

Roundups in two of the HAs are listed on page 2 of the latest schedule.

The Decision Record authorizing the actions was signed a year ago.
