BLM To Gather Wild Horses In Southern Wyoming


The following is an article from the Associated Press.

RAWLINS, Wyo. (AP) ― The U.S. Bureau of Land Management plans to begin gathering wild horses from two areas in southern Wyoming.

The BLM will gather and remove approximately 1,580 wild horses from the Adobe Town and Salt Wells Creek herd management areas, near Rock Springs and Rawlins. The gathering is expected to start on Wednesday.

The BLM expects to treat about 100 mares with a fertility-control vaccine and then release them.

The work will bring the wild horse population down to about 860 in the areas, a level the agency says is appropriate.
