Letter to Protest Wild Burro Gather

RE: Wild Burros Gather Hearing

Please accept the following comments regarding the Barstow meeting and burro gather plan. Please forward also to Hector Villalobos, and the Palm Springs BLM office.
In addition to the West Douglas decision and in light of Dr. Kings notations below the Mojave Burro gathers must stop pending resolutions of the legal questions raised. Quote from BLM "The decision to not manage for a herd area is NEPA document which is subject to change should new, prevailing data become available, As such through NEPA"
Additionally the deficiencies in the management plan that zeroed out herds of free roaming wild horses and burros must be immediately corrected to restore the herds to genetic viability on lands where they existed in 1971 that were inventoried, and omitted in the inventories. Some of these heritage herds are extinct in the wild NOW, pending redesignation of OCCUPIED historic herd areas.

Please enter these comments into the record.

Thank you,
