Four years ago the BLM conducted a helicopter roundup in the South Steens Herd Management Area (HMA) and removed hundreds of wild horses from
the range and then stockpiled them into long-term holding pens. Now the BLM is planning another roundup in the HMA, targeting over 300 horses for removal.
72% of the forage in this HMA is allocated to a private rancher who grazes his livestock on our public lands at tax-subsidized rates. Clearly there is ample room for adjusting forage allocations to maintain the current South Steens wild horses on the range where they belong.
Please send a message to the Bureau of Land Management via this action alert created by American Wild Horse Preservation Campaign —► http://bit.ly/ZjCPSh Deadline for comments is 4/29. Thank you!
