PALOMINO VALLEY, Nev. (AP) — The top Democrat on a congressional panel on public lands is traveling to Nevada to get a firsthand look at a government coral used to temporarily house 1,500 mustangs recently gathered from federal rangeland. Arizona Rep. Raul Grijalva is an outspoken critic of the Bureau of Land Management’s wild horse policies. The ranking member of the House Natural Resources subcommittee on national parks, forests and public lands says it makes no sense to spend tens of millions of taxpayer dollars to round up horses from their native range when the government has no room to store them. Grijalva planned a tour Wednesday afternoon at BLM’s temporary holding facility in Palomino Valley near Reno. He says recent studies show BLM roundups have the unintended consequence of actually increasing wild horse populations.
