These 129 burros have been sent to BLM’s Indian Lakes Road facility in Fallon, NV, where the public is only allowed to go for a quick tour on a wagon once or twice a year, so nobody can see them. The BLM will now flood the internet adoption sites with these burros, so the burros can rack up 3 strikes as soon as possible, and then it’s off to the slaughter pipeline. – Debbie
Edited Press Release
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) concluded a wild burro bait-and-water-trap gather on the Marietta Wild Burro Range (MWBR) in Mineral County, Nevada, on Aug. 4.
The BLM gathered 129 wild burros within and outside the MWBR.
The BLM said the purpose of the gather was to alleviate overpopulation within the MWBR. This led to animals leaving the range and moving into the vicinity of the state highways and had resulted in numerous vehicle collisions creating public safety and animal health risks.
All gathered wild burros were transported to the Indian Lakes facility located in Fallon, Nevada, where they will be prepared for the BLM adoption program. For information on how to adopt a wild burro, visit blm.gov/whb.
