Facilities must be located in Idaho, Nevada or Utah
GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. – BLM announced last week it is seeking contractors to provide corral space for animals gathered from public rangelands in the West. BLM will award contracts to facilities in the states of Idaho, Nevada and Utah that can accommodate 500—10,000 wild horses and burros in safe, humane conditions.
The corrals will serve as short-term holding and preparation facilities for animals to be transferred to off-range pastures or adoption and sale locations.
Rapidly growing herds the stress they place on the land requires the agency to remove more animals than it can place into private care, officials sais. “Off-range care facilities provide needed capacity to hold these excess animals, while providing veterinary care and preparing them for adoption.”
Proposals are accepted through November 30, 2020.
