Wild Horses Found Dead in Southeast Utah

The remains of 16 animals have been discovered on an unnamed grazing allotment between the towns of Bluff and Montezuma Creek, according to a news release posted yesterday by Advocates for Wild Equines.

The horses may have crossed the San Juan River onto BLM land from the Navajo reservation or migrated there from canyons and forests to the west, where wild horses have been spotted.

The Western Watersheds map shows three allotments on the north side of the river between Bluff and Montezuma Creek.

The Allotment Master Report puts all three in the Improve category and the map indicates all AUMs have been assigned to cattle.

There are no HMAs or WHTs in this part of the state.
