Location of Utah Wild Horse Shootings Identified

The remains were found on the McCracken Wash Allotment, one of three such parcels between Bluff and Montezuma Creek, according to a story posted today by KSL News of Salt Lake City.

The San Juan County Sheriff’s Office is leading the investigation.

The allotment offers 950 AUMs per year on 15,323 public acres.  The resource can be accessed by one permittee.

Forage availability works out to 62 AUMs per year per thousand acres, enough to support five wild horses per thousand acres.

The BLM has maintained that public lands in the American west can only support one wild horse per thousand acres, on average.
