Project Description:
This Environmental Assessment (EA) is being prepared to analyze a Herd Management Area Plan (HMAP) for the North Hills Herd Management Area (HMA) and North Hills Wild Horse Territory (WHT). This area is located in the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Cedar City Field Office (CCFO) and Forest Service Pine Valley Ranger District (USFS). The proposed action would also include the gather of wild horses 3-6 times over the next 10 years for population management, which includes removal of excess wild horses from the HMA/WHT, treatment of animals with fertility vaccines and other population control actions.
