Wild horses run on the Virginia Range during a horse count conducted by the Virginia Range Wildlife Protection Association in 2008.
Republican lawmakers have issued a statement applauding Gov. Steve Sisolak for his willingness to work on solutions to managing the Virginia Range horses. Assembly Minority Leader Jim Wheeler, R-Gardnerville, said after meeting with them and Jeffrey Berns, CEO of Blockchains, Sisolak directed the Nevada Agriculture Department to reinstate the cooperative agreement with the American Wild Horse Campaign to dart those horses with contraceptives.
