BLM Wild Horse Gather


BLM to begin wild horse and burro gather in northwest Nevada
The public is welcome to watch operations from established viewing areas.
The Bureau of Land Management on Monday, Sept. 27, will begin gathering excess wild horses and burros from public lands managed by its Applegate Field Office in far northwest Nevada.
The BLM plans to gather up to 1,220 wild horses and permanently remove 1,050 from the range in six herd management areas collectively called the Surprise Complex, a name referencing the BLM’s Surprise Field Station in Cedarville. The BLM may release up to 170 animals back to the herd management areas, if needed, to maintain viable populations. Mares released back to the range will be treated with fertility control drugs to slow herd population growth.
