2022 Roundup Season Resumes This Week

Helicopters have been grounded for a few months so the foals can grow and gain some strength before they’re taken off the range in favor of privately owned livestock.


The advocates want the horses removed with the Montana Solution but they’ll tolerate the losses associated with helicopters if they lead to greater use of the pesticide.

The action kicks off on July 1 at Buffalo Hills, according to the latest schedule, with 353 horses targeted for removal and 30 to be treated with fertility control.

The plan between now and the end of September calls for 8,793 animals to be gathered, 8,062 removed and 480 treated with fertility control.

Operations may or may not be announced and progress reports may or may not be posted, given the dearth of information at Piceance in Colorado.
