Wild Horse Gather Gets Underway Near Riverton


The following is portion of an article from County10.com:


(Lander, Wyo.) – The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Lander Field Office will begin a wild horse gather in the North Lander Wild Horse Herd Management Area (HMA) Complex southeast of Riverton this weekend. It is anticipated that the gather will continue for two to three weeks.


The North Lander Complex encompasses the Conant Creek, Dishpan Butte, Muskrat Basin and Rock Creek HMAs and is located in Fremont County, south of Wyoming Highway 136 (the Gas Hills Road) and north of Wyoming Highway 789/287.


The BLM will gather, treat with PZP-22, release and remove wild horses. The gather is necessary to bring the population of the complex back to its appropriate management level and slow the growth rate of the population that is returned to the North Lander Complex to help achieve a thriving natural ecological balance and a multiple use relationship with other resources within the HMAs.
