Bureau looks at mustering 900 Nevada wild horses

December 21, 2010

Feedback is sought by federal authorities for a planned wild horse muster in northwest Nevada.

The Bureau of Land Management plans to remove around 900 horses from the Fox-Hog, High Rock, Bitner and Wall Canyon herd management areas in far northwest Nevada known collectively as the High Rock Complex.

The tally includes around 400 wild horses living outside the herd management areas.

"We are proposing this action to return the wild horse population in the complex to its appropriate management level of 228 to 385 horses," said Allen Bollschweiller, manager of the bureau's Surprise field office in Cedarville, California.

"We estimate the current population at 885 to 930 horses. We also propose removing about 400 wild horses that are outside of established herd management areas."

A preliminary document will be released for public review and comment in February.
