Protect Utah Horses from Roundup

The Bureau of Land Management is proposing a helicopter roundup to remove 104-170 horses from the Frisco Herd Management Area in Utah this October.

Additionally, they are planning policies that will effect the the herd for the next 10- 20 years- the Herd Management Area Plan- (HMAP). The plan includes no language to protect the horses from livestock grazing or permanent sterilization.

Currently, the Allowable Management Level is just 12 to 60 horses for the 60,000-acre Frisco Herd Management Area while a self-sustaining population is a minimum of 150 animals, in order to maintain the genetic health of the herd.

Tell the BLM in Utah that a blanket plan for the next 10-20 years is unacceptable, because the environment, and environmental impacts change yearly and there can be no way to properaly plan for such a long period or analyze detrimental long tern negative consequences without further study.
