Craig briefs: BLM slated to hold wild horse hearing Aug. 4

— The Bureau of Land Management will hold a public hearing to discuss the use of motorized vehicles in administration of wild horses in Colorado from 6 to 7 p.m. Aug. 4 at the Grand Junction Field Office, 2815 H Road, according to a news release.

The BLM conducts a statewide public hearing to obtain public comment regarding the use of any motor vehicles in wild horse management. Motorized equipment is used for accomplishing a number of management objectives, such as trapping operations, transporting to holding and monitoring.

Colorado has four Herd Management Areas along the western slope of Colorado. The Sand Wash Basin, Piceance Creek/East Douglas, Little Book Cliffs and Spring Creek Basin HMAs are managed by the Little Snake Field Office, White River Field Office, Grand Junction Field Office and the Tres Rios Field Office, respectively. The use of motorized vehicles to manage or transport wild horses is planned to occur in 2016. For more information, visit
