    JARBIDGE field office is in charge of the Saylor Creek Wild Horse Herd.
    This is where the problem starts. These horses were pulled out of their Herd Management Area due to a wildfire. The next step used would be to remove them permanently through the RMP. This is one way that is used to take land away from the Wild Herds:

    In August 2009, the BLM rounded up the entire herd of 192 wild horses living in the Saylor Creek Herd Management Area in southern Idaho, after a wildfire burned a portion of their home range. (You can see these horses in BLM’s video of the mass roundup.)

    The horses are currently being held at the Wild Horse Corrals south of Boise, Idaho, and the BLM is soliciting comments from the public about whether and how many horses should be released back to the range once the area has recovered from the fire.

    BLM’s preferred plan is to release only 50-75 of the horses back to the range, while the majority of the rest will be warehoused for life in off-the-range holding. There they will join the estimated 38,000 other wild horses stockpiled by BLM at a cost to taxpayers of nearly $50 million annually.

    Re-release all the Saylor Creek wild horses! Stop destroying our wild horse herds. ENOUGH with the cruelty and abuse.

    The public is speaking out, and the Government is not listening. Stop wasting tax payer’s money and leave America’s wild horses alone. If you must manage, do it wisely, humanely and with compassion.
