Day 1: Over 50 wild horses were driven from the Humbolt HA on the first day of a “zero out.” The weather turned cold at daytime high of 45 with windchill making it feel 39 according to accuweather. Fog delayed the start of the day and wind (gusts at 24 mph) shut down operations. This removal is expected to last 3-4 days and permanently remove about 200 wild horses. It is expected that a load will ship am to Burns Oregon.
Media was present and info on broadcast will be added when available.
