BLM Tuscarora Wild Horse Gather to Begin July 9 delayed from planned start of July 1. Please call for a stop to this 21 day roundup!
BLM considers foaling season to end June 30th but going against their own recommendations, the Tuscarora Helicopter Roundup is planned to begin on July 1st in the summer Nevada heat where temperatures often exceed 100 deg. F. Over 1400 wild horses and their young foals are planned to be run into traps and a thousand or more removed. A recent flyover of the area revealed only 310 horses but 10x as many cattle. The BLM aims to manage this 750 square mile area for over 4,000 head livestock while allowing only 440 mustangs. Please call on your Senators to ask Senator Reid of Nevada to stop the Tuscarora roundup.
