2017 Cathedral Creek Wild Horse Gather
The BLM is removing up to 100 wild horses from private lands in the Cathedral Creek area starting Sept. 14.
The BLM will primarily use a helicopter drive trap method to gather horses that have strayed outside the designated Piceance-East Douglas Herd Management Area in northwest Colorado. If less than 100 horses are gathered from this area, the BLM may gather horses from other nearby areas.
We estimate there are 210 wild horses outside the HMA in the area covered by this decision, which includes about 773,000 acres in the White River Field Office. The decision area does not include the West Douglas Herd Area.
