Wild Burro Gather from Cibola-Trigo Herd Management Area Postponed

Yuma, Ariz. – The Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) Yuma Field Office has postponed the gather of 350 wild burros from the Cibola-Trigo Herd Management Area (HMA) that was scheduled to begin on Monday, April 9, 2012. 

At this time, there is no estimated start date for the gather. The postponement is due to the receipt of an Appeal and Petition for Stay that will be forwarded to the Interior Board of Land Appeals (IBLA). The Petition for Stay is a request to IBLA similar to a temporary injunction, which is a stop order on a proposed action.

Further information regarding the gather will be released when the BLM receives the ruling for the Petition for Stay from the (IBLA). Please visit the BLM’s gather web page at to check the status of the gather.

The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land, the most of any Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's mission is to manage and conserve the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations under our mandate of multiple-use and sustained yield. In Fiscal Year 2014, the BLM generated $5.2 billion in receipts from public lands.
