The Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) Winnemucca District Office, in Nevada, is seeking public comment on the East Pershing Complex Gather Plan Preliminary Environmental Assessment (EA). The 30-day public comment period will close at 4:30 p.m. on July 12.

This preliminary EA specifically considers and analyzes potential methods to be used to manage the wild horses and burros within the East Pershing Complex, located south of Winnemucca and east of Lovelock, Nevada.

Due to wild horse and burro populations in excess of the BLM’s appropriate management level (AML), lack of water, and forage availability for the increasing herd sizes, the BLM says actions are necessary to prevent further range deterioration and reduce population growth rates to achieve and maintain the AML.
