The Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Eagle Lake Field Office has completed a categorical exclusion (DOI-BLM-CA-N050-2018-02-CX) which analyzes the potential impacts of the Removal of Nuisance Burros from Private Lands.
 
The proposed action is to remove up 100 - 120 burros from Buffalo Meadows/Heller/Bull Flat Ranch areas. The BLM will utilize wildlife friendly bait or water trapping techniques to capture and remove burros.  The traps will be in place for a minimum of 1-2 days or up to 1-2 months as necessary to capture the identified nuisance burros.  Trap sites will utilize private livestock facilities Buffalo Meadows and Heller Ranches.  One trap site, Buffalo Well, located on BLM land, may also be used.  Trapping will take place during the Fall of 2017 through December 2018.  Following capture, all burros will be transported to the Litchfield Wild Horse & Burro facility. 
The trap sites at Buffalo Meadows, Heller Ranches and Buffalo Well have already been surveyed by BLM specialists and they will be re-surveyed, as needed, prior to bait trapping.  (No new sites were identified; all sites are consistent with those from 2015). However, if a new site is needed, surveys will be completed prior to use.
