BLM Offers Reward for Info Regarding Mustang’s Shooting Death

Investigators from the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) are seeking information regarding the shooting death of a wild horse in Utah. A $5,000 bounty is up for grabs for a lead that helps capture the horse’s killer.
The 14-year-old palomino stud was shot and killed with a small caliber gun, according to the BLM. It happened on the Swasey Herd Management Area west of Delta.

The National Mustang Association and the BLM are offering a $2,000 reward for information leading to the identification and conviction of person(s) involved. The Humane Society of Utah has now upped the reward another $3,000 to help find the person that is involved in the killing of the palomino stallion.

“Harassing, capturing or killing wild horses is illegal,” West Desert District Manager Kevin Oliver said. “The 1971 Wild and Free-Roaming Horses and Burro Act protects these animals, and the BLM is committed to enforcing the act and finding those responsible.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact BLM Law Enforcement at 801-539-4082.
