RENO (AP) — The U.S. Bureau of Land Management says it will remove 200 wild horses from the northern Nevada range because of ongoing drought.

The federal agency says mustangs in the Antelope and Antelope Valley Herd Management Areas are moderately thin to very thin because of minimal forage and limited water.

BLM says the condition of the animals will deteriorate if steps are not taken to remove them.

A helicopter will be used to gather the horses in the areas located 60 miles south of Wells and 50 miles north of Ely. The roundup is scheduled to begin Oct. 1.

Horses removed from the range will be taken to either Palomino Valley north of Reno or the Gunnison Correctional Facility in Utah to be prepared for adoption or sent to long-term pastures.

Take them to the area the BLM is planning to use herbicide on unwanted grass. How stupid are humans, they remove animals that keep unwanted vegitation down...the unwanted vegitation grows back...now they spray herbicide to kill what the horses were keeping down.....Then more horse are removed because there is nothing for them to eat............AND ROUND AND ROUND AND ROUND the MERRY-GO-ROUND of stupidity goes.
