BLM rounds up wild horses in Southern Nevada
September 9, 2008
ELY, Nev. ” The U.S. Bureau of Land Management is removing up to 130 wild horses from an area in southeast Nevada because it says the animals are damaging private property and pose a safety threat to motorists.
The BLM says horses have migrated into residential neighborhoods north of Caliente because of a lack of food and water.
Officials say they are damaging property and creating a safety hazard to drivers on U.S. 93.
A roundup began Monday.
Officials say captured horses will be taken to a BLM facility in Delta, Utah and made available for adoption or sale.
