Wild Burros in Nevada Need Your Help!

Only 5,800 wild burros remain on public lands in the West. Wild burros are protected under federal law just as wild horses are, but their numbers are dwindling.

The U.S. Forest Service is proposing to remove 80 percent of the wild burros living in one of the few remaining habitat areas—the Hickison Wild Burro Territory (WBT) in central Nevada. Despite taking recent action to expand the Hickison burro habitat, the Forest Service is proposing to establish an allowable management level of just 16- 45 burros for the WBT.

This must not be allowed to happen. Join with IDA and our coalition partner American Wild Horse Preservation Campaign (AWHPC) to oppose this controversial plan to remove wild burros from the Hickison WBT! Please send a message send a message to the Austin, Nevada, District Ranger.

Thank you for taking action for wild burros!

    Our government is so unfriendly when it comes to wildlife.Our Fish and Game Service does more harm than good. It is astounding how little they care in PROTECTING wildlife and are always trying to diminish the numbers of all the incredibly wonderful and diverse creatures we have in the United States.I am sick of reading about there constant idiotic ideas.We need a change in Washington how our wildlife is managed and it needs to be some one who respects and truly cares about the animals and not about the National Rifle Association and the other organizations that fill our Senators and Representatives pockets with cold,hard cash and other favors.Americans who care about wildlife are disgusted with Washington. President Obama needs to step in and get control of these cruel and greedy people sitting on their fat wallets in Washington.

    Yet again the idiots in Washington come up with some stupid plan to do something that will harm animals for no reason. Maybe there is some toxic substance in D.C. that causes them to come up with theses terrible ideas. I know I am not supposed to be disrespectful but…REALLY!.
