On February 28th the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) will move forward with the trap site adoption of 16 yearlings taken from Fish Creek.
A “stand off” with Eureka County and ranchers, including trespass rancher Kevin Borba, has temporarily blocked the release of nearly 200 wild horses to the range. http://wildhorseeducation.org/2015/02/22/standoff-obstructs-pioneering-effort-for-wild-horses/
Preparations are underway to fight the move by the livestock community from blocking a plan designed around the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) recommendations.
“Being held hostage by those addicted to their government handouts is not an option,” said Laura Leigh, President of Wild Horse Education, “This plan to bring the program out of the dark ages will not be compromised.”
In the mean time 16 amazing wild horses are looking for forever homes. On Friday a “preview” of wild horses held at the Fire Station in Eureka will move forward. The adoption event itself is scheduled for Saturday the 28th. Information on the event can be found here: http://www.blm.gov/nv/st/en/fo/battle_mountain_field/blm_programs/wild_horse_and_burro/Fish_Creek_Wild_Horse_Gather/adopting.html
