BLM Seeks Input on Vehicles used During Wild Horse Gathers

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Nevada has invited the public to submit comments as part of its annual statewide hearing on the use of helicopters and motorized vehicles in wild horse management operations.

The hearing was held May 29 in Carson City, Nev. If you were unable to attend, or would like to submit an additional comment regarding motorized vehicles in the management of wild horses throughout Nevada from June 2012 to May 2013 we invite you to do so. Comments must be received no later than June 12. Only comments sent to the address, email, or fax number identified below will be accepted and considered.

Planned management actions include wild horse removals, aerial population inventory, and distribution flights of herd management areas. Motorized vehicles, such as semi-trucks and trailers, and pickup trucks, will also be used to transport wild horses. The BLM plans to use helicopters to help gather wild, free-roaming horses and burros from public lands in 2012 and 2013.
