What Can I Do?

  1. Report illegal feeding. Call 775-353-3608 with specific details – date, time, address or location, license plate numbers, and any identifying information. 
  2. Fence out private property. Because horses are attracted to green landscapes, sturdy fencing around such areas can be helpful to keep horses away from urban areas. 
  3. Keep a safe distance from horses. Horses can be unpredictable and can cause serious bodily injuries. 
  4. Drive with extra caution in areas where horses may be located.
