Statement regarding public opening for Virginia Range feral Horse RFP
“The Nevada Department of Agriculture (NDA) did not receive any proposals for the transfer of ownership of the 2,951 feral/estray horses located in the Virginia Range,” Director Jim Barbee said. “Because no proposals were received, we will not be holding a public opening as scheduled in the timeline of the request for proposals.
Statement regarding next steps
“We are still under the existing directive from the Board of Agriculture to manage the horses for public safety only,” Director Barbee said. “The next step is to go back to the board for further direction, and we will continue to manage the Virginia Range feral/estray horses for public safety.”
