LOMPAC, CA (AWHPC) – BLM has postponed its proposed roundup of wild horses from the Confusion Mountains Herd Management Area in Utah, after the agency received thousands of protest emails from AWHPC supporters.
Eric Reid, Wild Horse and Burro specialist at BLM’s Filmore field office, confirmed that he had just received an email today from the Washington office that handles the roundup schedule, saying the Confusion roundup was being removed from the schedule.
BLM had planned to conduct this roundup without public comment nor a current environmental assessment. The roundup would have left behind only 70-100 horses in the 235,000-acres public land complex, or less than one horse per 2,000 acres.
On behalf of the horses, thank you so much for your support,
The AWHPC Team
