COMMENTS NEEDED for Wyoming Wild Horses!
Excerpt from The Cloud Foundation:
With roundup season starting up again, it is imperative, now more than ever, that we all raise our voices in support of our wild horses and burros. BLM is still soliciting comments for their planned roundup in Divide Basin, a larger herd in southern Wyoming near Rock Springs. We ask that you submit your own comments regarding the Environmental Assessment (EA) for the Divide Basin Herd Management Area (HMA). There are gross inadequacies and faulty data utilized in the scope of this EA which will come as no surprise. What is a bit more surprising is the rush to create a non-reproducing herd as an alternative, which is what they want to do to in White Mountain and Little Colorado! If a roundup is conducted this summer, the herd will be reduced to only 415 horses on over 700,000 acres with many of these horses being non-reproducers! The Cloud Foundation’s comments for this EA are available online here. Read on for a sample format!
COMMENTS NEED TO BE SUBMITTED by JUNE 20th before 4:30 PM Mountain Time. Send by Email to DivideBasin_HMA_WY@blm.gov – With “Divide Basin EA Comments” in the subject line.
