Start Date: 5/9/2018 -  
The U.S. Forest Service and the Bureau of Land Management will undertake an emergency wild horse roundup in the Cold Creek area northwest of Las Vegas. The size of the herd and the drought were factors necessitating the roundup, according to the BLM, as the lack of water jeopardized the entire ecosystem. Residents see the situation differently and do not want to see the horses rounded up. KVBC-TV NBC My News 3 (Las Vegas, Nev.), May 9, 2018
