Implementation of New Wild Horse and Burro Authority
as Directed by Congress:
The Bureau of Land Management is in the process of implementing legislation passed by Congress. The legislation directs the BLM to offer for sale those wild horses and burros that are more than 10 years old or have been unsuccessfully offered for adoption at least three times. We estimate that there are about 8,400 animals affected by this new law.
