Oppose BLM Plan to Eradicate Burros in Southern California Desert
Public Comment Deadline: September 28, 2012.
Once again, we need to urge the BLM to protect and preserve the burros in the Piute Mountain Herd Area (HA) in the southern California desert.
Earlier this year we asked you to oppose the Bureau of Land Management's (BLM's) proposal to remove all burros from this historic Herd Area where burros have lived for more than a century. You responded in force, and the agency received thousands of comments opposing the proposed burro wipe out. After that, the BLM did not move forward with the Piute Mountain burro removal.
Now the BLM has revived its plan to eradicate burros from their federally-protected home in Piute Mountain via a helicopter stampede.
Please take easy action below to urge the BLM to cancel its burro roundup and removal plans and restore zeroed-out acreage as burro habitat in the Piute Mountain.
