The following is a post from the American Wild Horse Preservation.
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is seeking public comments on its plan to roundup and remove 167 wild horses from the West Douglas Herd Area (HA) near Grand Junction, CO. If unable to capture all 167 horses from the West Douglas HA, the BLM will also round up horses in the neighboring Piceance/East Douglas Herd Management Area (HMA) in order to meet its removal quota. The BLM has been trying to “zero out” (eliminate all wild horses from) the West Douglas HA for years. Despite receiving over 8,000 public scoping comments demanding alternatives to this proposed roundup, the BLM has failed to seriously consider options for reducing livestock grazing and humanely managing wild horses with PZP birth control in this area. Your comments are needed today!
