Independent panel readies review of BLM mustangs

(Continued)

RENO, Nev. —

BLM announced in March that budget cuts had forced it to scale back weekend operations at its largest wild-horse adoption facility in the country — the Palomino Valley National Wild Horse and Burro Adoption Center about 20 miles north of Reno.

The research committee planned a formal release of its report in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday at 1 p.m. EDT.

The 14-member panel chaired by Guy Palmer, an expert in animal disease and public health at Washington State University, includes Nevada's former state veterinarian, grazing specialists at the U.S. Geological Survey and Colorado State University, a wildlife scientist at Montana State, a forest health researcher at UC Berkeley, a landscape ecologist at Brigham Young University and experts from the St. Louis and Bronx zoos.
