Project Description:
The LSFO proposes to gather approximately 200 wild horses within the Sand Wash Basin Herd Management Area (HMA) via bait/water trapping. When a band is confined in the trap, the mares would be treated with a single dose of the PZP vaccine known as Zonastat-H and then the band would be released back to the range. Under an agreement with the Great Escape Mustang Sanctuary (GEMS), the BLM would remove up to 50 younger horses for placement into the GEMS training and adoption program.
Project Location:
The analysis area is located in Townships 8 to 11 North, Ranges 97 to 100 West, various sections, Sixth Principle Meridian, Moffat County, Colorado.
