Project: Stinkingwater Herd Management Area Wild Horse Gather

Project Status: Planning Completed
Office Location: Burns
Resource Area: Three Rivers
NEPA #: DOI-BLM-OR-B050-2010-0024-EA  Environmental Assessment / FONSI
Document Publish Date: 7/02/2010
Summary: The Proposed Action is to gather approximately 214 wild horses (100 percent of the population) in the summer of 2010, and approximately 174 excess wild horses would be removed from the Stinkingwater HMA. Approximately 40 wild horses (20 mares and 20 studs) would be returned to the HMA at completion of the gather, leaving a post gather population of approximately 40 head, which is the lower level of the AML. This alternative would include determining sex, age, and color, assessing herd health pregnancy/parasite loading/physical condition/etc.), monitoring results as appropriate, sorting individuals as to age, size, sex, temperament and/or physical condition, and returning selected animals, primarily in the 6 to 10-year age group.

Summary: Having considered the Proposed Action, No Action, other Alternatives and associated impacts and based on analysis in DOI-BLM-OR-B050-2010-0024-EA, it is my decision to implement the capture and removal of excess wild horses in the HMA as described in the Proposed Action. Except gelding of stallions will not occur. This was analyzed as part of the No Action Alternative. Pursuant to Title 43 of the CFR at 4770.3(c), the Stinkingwater HMA 2010 gather will be approved for implementation following a 30-day appeal period, provided no stays are granted. Gather operations will begin on or about August 8, 2010, and last until management objectives are attained.
