Pryor Mountain Wild Horse Range: Daily Gather Update - August 3, 2012

BLM Website

At day's end yesterday, August 2, the BLM removed 2 males, 2 females and 1 foal from the Krueger Pond bait trap site. The BLM will not be gathering today.  Horses removed from the range are being transported on the same day to Britton Springs, where BLM staff is monitoring the site.  
The BLM has completed trapping operations at the high elevation trap sites and will continue to monitor and work only the trap sites in the lower elevations (Bad Pass and Layout Creek). Trap sites the horses are not heavily utilizing will remain open for the horses to pass in and out. 
The BLM has also set an adoption date for the horses gathered and removed from this year's bait trap gather.  The date will be September 8, 2012, at the Britton Springs Corrals near Lovell, Wyo.  More details on the adoption will be posted within the next several days.  For general information on how to adopt a wild horse, please click here.
The BLM is aiming to gather and remove 30-40 excess wild horses from the range as identified in the Environmental Assessment.

As the bait gather progresses, the list of gathered and removed horses (with their given names as identified in the Environmental Assessment) will be made available every Friday on a weekly basis.  List of Names
