The BLM Winnemucca District, Humboldt River Field Office is publishing the EA for the East Pershing Complex Gather Plan and is now available and can be viewed online under the "Documents" tab to the left. Hardcopies of these documents are available upon request from the Winnemucca District.

 
 
 
 
This EA specifically considered and analyzeed potential methods to be used to manage the wild horses and burros (WH&Bs) within the East Pershing Complex.  For the purpose of this EA, “gathers” refers to rounding up animals and “removals” refers to taking them off the range permanently.  

Due to WH&B numbers in excess of Appropriate Management Level (AML), lack of water and forage availability for the increasing herd sizes; management actions are necessary in order to prevent further deterioration of range conditions, and reduce population growth rates in order to achieve and maintain AML.  


 

The Decision is to select the multiple gathers and removals with fertility control (Native PZP, GonaCon, or most effective formulation) tools from Alternative B for the East Pershing Complex Gather as described in the EA. Spaying and gelding tools from Alternative B were not selected to be implemented at this time.

This Decision constitutes the final decision to implement multiple gathers and removals with fertility control within Alternative B to achieve and maintain AML.
