BLM asks for ideas on controlling burros

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Federal officials want ideas on how to control the wild horse and burro populations in 10 states including New Mexico.

The Bureau of Land Management announced it is seeking research proposals.

The agency wants experts who create project proposals aimed at creating new techniques or improving old ones.

BLM estimates more than 40,000 wild horses and burros roam on public land.

There have been countless round ups, birth control measures and other programs to help, but the problem is still a huge one. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
