BLM Ends Roundup in Colorado’s Piceance East Douglas HMA

The Bureau of Land Management has ended their Piceance East Douglas roundup 190 wild horses short of their planned removal.

Thank you for taking action on behalf of these innocent animals!

According to BLM’s website, they’ve captured 864 wild horses including 166 foals. They returned 41 stallions to the range, and we understand they are treating some mares with fertility control and holding them for release in 30 days.

Hundreds of Piceance wild horses have been spared the trauma of the chase and capture in the sweltering summer temperatures — thanks to YOU.

Thank you for NEVER giving up and for TAKING ACTION on behalf of our wild horses! Without YOU, the helicopters would still be flying.

BLM Plans Roundup in Nevada Wild Horse Range

Sadly, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) seems hell-bent on destroying our few remaining wild horse and burro herds.

The agency now proposes to round up and remove the majority of wild horses and ALL the wild burros in the Nevada Wild Horse Range (NWHR) on Nellis Air Force Base in southern Nevada – 1 of only 4 designated sanctuaries for wild equids in the country.

This 10-year destruction-plan spells out the capture of 500-600 horses and burros, destruction of natural wild behaviors and the use of dangerous surgical fertility control. To add insult to injury, the local BLM has failed year after year to develop sufficient, year-round water sources for the horses and burros living on this rugged desert range.

Please, take just a moment to raise your voice. Tell the BLM they MUST listen to Americans who want their wild herds humanely managed and protected on the range where they belong!
