BLM Offers $10,000 Reward for Information on Wild Horse 

and Burro Shootings


Over the last several months, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has seen an increase of reported unlawful killings of federally protected wild horses and burros.  There are four specific incidents documented by BLM law enforcement.  The BLM is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for these violations of the Wild Free-Roaming Horses and Burros Act of 1971.


The reported incidents are as follows:

01/25/2012 — 3 wild horses unlawfully killed near 3 C Well in Eureka County, Nevada

02/02/2012 — 33 wild horses unlawfully killed near Bottle Summit in Lander County , Nevada on US Forest Service land

04/04/2012 — 32 wild horses unlawfully killed near the Nevada-California border in Lassen County, California

04/09/2012 — 31 wild horse and 2 wild burros unlawfully killed near Black Rock Canyon in Pershing County, Nevada


BLM Director Bob Abbey said, “The perpetrators of these unlawful killings will be vigorously pursued by BLM law enforcement and our partner law enforcement agencies.  We hope this reward offer will generate information that leads to the swift arrest and ultimate conviction of these individuals.”  

Individuals with information about these incidents are encouraged to call the BLM Crime Hotline phone number at: 1-800-521-6501.  Persons providing information may choose to remain anonymous.   

The BLM currently manages more than 37,000 wild horses and burros on public rangelands in 10 Western states.
