ELY, NV - The U.S. Bureau of Land Management is launching another wild horse roundup this week in central Nevada.
The Pancake Complex gather starts Thursday about 30 miles west
of Ely and 80 miles north of Tonopah.
BLM officials estimate there are currently 2,200 horses living
in that area. They say that's 1,800 too many.\
Crews will implement a pilot project which involves small
roundups over a 10 year period -- instead of one large roundup.
Originally the BLM planned to castrate and release stallions back into the Pancake Complex, but they dropped the plan after advocates filed a lawsuit last month.
