Burros said to be a “safety hazard” by Bureau of Land Management officials will be rounded up within the Blue Diamond community near Red Rock National Conservation Area beginning Monday.
BLM workers will gather about 30 nuisance burros from the baseball diamond within the community. The temporary bait trap will consist of a series of corral panels and hay, and will be removed every evening so the park can be used.
BLM officials said the “nuisance burros” are being gathered because they pose a safety hazard along State Route 159 and cause property damage in Blue Diamond. The gather is expected to last about five days.
