The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Nevada’s Ely District has concluded the Eagle and Silver King emergency wild horse gather.

The BLM gathered and removed 74 wild horses from public and private lands adjacent to U.S. Highway 93 and State Route 322 in and outside the Eagle and Silver King herd management areas (HMAs) in eastern Nevada. Thirty-one wild horses were gathered from between Pioche and Eagle Valley, and 43 wild horses were gathered from the Bennet Springs area southwest of Panaca.

Wild horses removed from the range were transported to the BLM’s Indian Lakes off-range corrals located in Fallon, Nevada, to be prepared for the BLM’s adoption program. Unadopted wild horses will be placed in long-term pastures where they will be cared for and retain their “wild” status and protection under the 1971 Wild Free-Roaming Horses and Burros Act. The BLM does not sell or send any wild horses to slaughter.

The Eagle and Silver King Emergency Wild Horse Gather began on Tuesday, Dec. 20, and concluded on Wednesday, Dec. 28. An Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service veterinarian was on call throughout gather operations
