LOVELOCK, Nev. (MyNews4.com & KRNV) -- The Bureau of Land Management has announced that it will begin a wild horse bait and water trap in Pershing County Monday.

The BLM will be gathering the horses about 10 miles northeast of Lovelock in the Humboldt Herd area. Once the wild horses become accustomed to their surroundings, they will be transferred elsewhere.

The goal is to remove a total of about 100 wild horses from the range.

The gathers need to be stopped. Our wild horses and burros are on the brink of extinction, and are extinct now in some of the states where they used to roam. We need to list North American Wild Horses and Burros as an ENDANGERED SPECIES. Thank you.

Sell each horse for $10,000 each makes a $1 Million dollar profit! Folk's in Kentucky pay even more for a wild Nevada Mustang. "There's Money in them there Hills!"
