Lee Flat HMA

The wild burros were introduced to this area in the mid-1800s when mining was most active. As the miners abandoned their mines, they turned the burros out to fend for themselves.  The burros are commonly gray, brown, and black, but other colors can occur.  The animals are generally between 10 and 12 hands and weigh between 400 and 600 pounds.
