    (CEDAR CITY, Utah) - The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Cedar City Field Office is seeking public comment on an Environmental Assessment (EA) analyzing proposed wild horse gather, removal and fertility treatment in the Bible Spring Complex.

    The four Herd Management Areas (HMAs) that make up the Bible Spring Complex—Bible Spring, Blawn Wash, Tilly Creek and Four Mile—are located in western Iron and Beaver counties, approximately 30 miles west of Minersville, Utah in the Wah Wah and Indian Peak mountain ranges. The Bible Spring Complex is approximately 222,929 acres of public, private and state lands.

    The EA analyzes a proposal to gather and remove excess wild horses and apply fertility control between two to four times over a 10-year period. The EA, including maps, is available on line at: http://www.blm.gov/ut/st/en/prog/wild_horse_and_burro.html or on the Environmental Notification Bulletin Board at: https://www.blm.gov/ut/enbb/index.php; search for project name “Bible."

    Written comments will be accepted by letter or email until May 30, 2014. Please note that the most useful comments are those that contain new technical or scientific information relevant to the proposed action. Comments should be as specific as possible. Comments which contain only opinions or preferences will not receive a formal response but may be considered in the BLM decision-making process. Please reference “Bible Spring Complex Wild Horse Gather Plan EA” when submitting comments.
