Can WCRAS help with wild horse issues?

The wild horse herds in the Virginia range are horses that have been turned loose by their owner or horses that have migrated from other areas.

These horses are under the jurisdiction of the Nevada Department of Agriculture (NDA).  WCRAS may assist NDA with an injured horse on a roadway, however all other welfare concerns for these horses fall under NDA's purview and additional information can be found on their website here:

Wild horse and burro programs are organized and managed by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and there are several herd management areas in Nevada.  More information can be found here:
