“When it comes to sucking-up to Welfare Cattlemen and violating federal law over the mismanagement of federally protected wild horses and burros there’s nothing like the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to test the depth of the bottom of the barrel over ethics, legal interpretation and out right lack of any morale compass.
Once again, armed with junk science, bad math, collusion and strange bedfellows the BLM plans to attack the dwindling wild horse herds of Wyoming while our current administration sits with its thumb up its backside as it totally ignors the outrage of the not only the American public, but the world.
Personally, I have had enough!” ~ R.T.

BLM Releases Decision for Red Desert Wild Horse Gather
The Bureau of Land Management Rawlins and Lander field offices have released a decision record for an environmental assessment which analyzes a proposed wild horse gather in the Red Desert Wild Horse Herd Management Area Complex.
The Red Desert Complex, which includes the Antelope Hills, Crooks Mountain, Green Mountain, Lost Creek and Stewart Creek herd management areas, is located in Sweetwater, Carbon, Fremont and Natrona counties west and south of Wyoming Highway 287.
At a future date that has yet to be determined, the BLM will gather wild horses in order to return populations to within appropriate management levels, ensure long-term viability of sage-grouse populations within the complex, and administer the PZP-22 fertility control vaccine to mares returned to the complex.
The revised environmental assessment, finding of no significant impact and decision record are available by visiting the BLM website at www.blm.gov/wy/st/en/info/NEPA/documents/rfo/red-desert.html. The decision is subject to administrative review through the appeal process, which is outlined in the decision record.
Wild horses that are removed will be available for adoption to qualified applicants. For more information about adopting a Wyoming wild horse, visit www.blm.gov/wy/st/en/programs/Wild_Horses.html.
