Take Action: Submit Comments on Plan That Will Affect Mustangs in Northern Wyoming for Next 20 Years
Our Chance to Weigh in for the Wild Horses of McCullough Peaks & Fifteenmile HMAs is Now!
The U.S. Department of Interior’s Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is revising a decades-old land plan that will set wild horse management policy in the McCullough Peaks and Fifteenmile Herd Management Areas (HMAs) for the next 20 years. The area affected by the Bighorn Basin Resource Management Plan Revision also includes five Herd Areas where wild horses were found in 1971 when the Wild Free Roaming Horses and Burros Act was passed, but which the BLM has subsequently “zeroed out” for wild horse use.
This is the stage in plan development in which the BLM will set forage and water allocations and make land use decisions on which Authorized Management Levels (AMLs) for wild horses are based. It is critcally important that we flood the public record with comments from citizens who want to see the AMLs for wild horses increased in these areas and wild horses restored to those “zeroed out” Herd Areas where only private livestock are now allowed to graze. Please take easy action below to submit your comments today! The deadline is September 7, so please do not delay!
