BLM To Move Forward With Wild Horse Removal

The Bureau of Land Management announced last week that they will be removing up to 100 wild horses this fall from private land and other areas outside the Piceance-East Douglas Herd Management Area in Northwestern Colorado.  According to White River Field Manager Kent Walker, horses that stray from the 300-square-mile heard management area need to be removed to reduce conflicts with lands outside the management area.  The BLM will primarily use a helicopter to gather horses from private lands near Cathedral Creek. If less than 100 wild horses are gathered from the area, the BLM may elect to gather horses from nearby land outside the Heard Management Area.
