$20K reward for info on killings of 5 wild horses in Nevada

by The Associated Press | 4 Oct 22

LAS VEGAS (AP) — A $20,000 reward is now being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of whoever killed five wild horses in eastern Nevada late last year, the Bureau of Land Management announced Monday.

BLM officials said the National Mustang Association pledged to double the previous $10,000 reward in the case.

Authorities said five mortally wounded horses were discovered Nov. 16 in Jakes Valley, about 30 miles (48 kilometers) west of Ely.

They said the horses all were located within 600 yards of each other about two miles (3 kilometers) south of U.S. Highway 50, and an aborted fetus was attached to one of the dead animals.

The BLM is investigating and prosecuting the killings as part of the enforcement of the Wild Horses and Burro Act of 1971.

  1. No kidding. As the old adage goes BLM stands for Big Lies and Mismanagement.Has been forever and how can we change it?


  2. Is thr BLM really trying to find out who did it? People in the midwest dont generally hear about what is happening with the horses, blm, the roundups etc. It rarely makes our news. I think more people would care if news about them reached more of the country.


    1. There are numerous wild horse and burro protection groups who have been fighting for the rights and lives of America’s wild horses. They range from very large, highly active groups to smaller groups who do whatever they can. You might check this group out to get an idea: https://americanwildhorsecampaign.org/. They state they have “more than 700,000 supporters and followers nationwide”. And this too https://wildhorsesite.com/wild-horse-websites.html.

      In the meantime, we find it pretty much impossible to believe anything that the BLM says. —TH
