BLM Suspends Roundup of Walker Lake, NV Mustang Herd
Let's Keep the Momentum Up to Stop Removal of Another Nevada Herd
Good news for a change: the BLM has suspended the proposed roundup of 104 horses living south of Walker Lake on the Hawthorne Army Depot in northern Nevada. The agency is working with horse advocacy groups on a plan to protect these horses without removing them. Congratulations to the local residents and horse advocates who are working hard to save the Walker Lake herd!
Now let’s convince the BLM to do the same thing for 50 wild horses living outside the Augusta Mountains Herd Management Area (HMA) in north central Nevada. AWHPC has just learned that these horses are living in an area that was once designated as wild horse habitat but was “zeroed out” for wild horses while livestock grazing was allowed to continue.

Help us compel BLM decision-makers to scrap plans for the permanent removal of these horses in favor of managing this herd on the range. Take Action Here.
Also: Today is the deadline to submit your comments on the BLM's treat-and-release plan for horses living within the Augusta Mountains HMA. If you didn't take action on last week's alert yet, please Take Action Here by end of day today.
