Comments Needed to Oppose Triple B, Maverick Medicine Roundup
BLM TO REMOVE ANOTHER 1,726 MUSTANGS FROM NORTHEASTERN NEVADA
The mustangs need YOU to be their voice.
Please submit your comments by February 7.
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is accepting public comments on a Preliminary Environmental Assessment (EA) on a plan to roundup 1,726 wild horses from the Triple B, Maverick Medicine and Antelope Valley BLM Herd Managment Areas and the Cherry Spring Wild Horse Territory, managed by the U.S. Forest Service. The roundup is scheduled for July 2011, in the heat of the desert summer.
The plan will leave behind as few as 472 wild horses in this vast, 1.7 million-acre public lands complex. Meanwhile, the BLM authorizes nine times that number of privately-owned livestock to graze the same area.
