BLM wants Public comments on possible Pryor Mountain 2012 roundup

Please write or fax in your comments TODAY!  

The BLM is proposing possible bait trapping and removal of more horses from Pryor Mountain in 2012, which is the ONLY WILD HORSE HERD left in Montana!  Remember there was a large round-up in late 2009, and many horses were removed from the approx. 38,000 acres.   There are approx 150 adult horses on Pryor Mountain and 17 foals.

Reply before the August 31, 2011 deadline!!!

– There should be 150+ adult wild horses in each herd area for safe genetics, and yet the BLM wants 90 or fewer
– Say no to a possible future roundup or bait trapping of any kind!
