The Bureau of Land Management announced it will begin gathering and removing wild horses in Northern Nevada.
At the end of July, the Caliente Field Office will use bait trap operations to remove wild horses from the Caliente Herd Area Complex, the Eagle Herd Management efforts and the Silver King Herd Management Area.
The operation aims to reduce vehicle collisions and prevent private property damage. Horses identified for removal will be transported to a corral in Fallon.
After they are checked by a veterinarian, they will be prepared for the BLM’s wild horse and burro adoption and sale program.
The BLM estimates there are more than 2,000 horses in the Caliente herd area. The announcement did not say how many horses the BLM plans to remove during this operation.
