BLM seeks comment on roundup

BATTLE MOUNTAIN (AP) – The federal Bureau of Land Management is taking public comment on a plan to round up most of the wild horses in a range in north-central Nevada, and apply experimental fertility vaccine to mares.

The agency says 221 wild horses would be removed and most other horses would be returned to the Callaghan Complex and New Pass-Ravenswood Herd Management Areas under a new strategy now getting environmental review.

Officials are seeking comment by Oct. 2. The roundup is expected to begin Dec. 1.
