The following news release was sent by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management:
PHOENIX – Federal rangers are confirming this afternoon that eleven wild burros, including newborns, were brutally killed by assailants on public lands 20 miles northwest of Phoenix, Arizona.
Federal law enforcement rangers are clearing the crime scene now in the Lake Pleasant area, just north of Morgan City Wash where the carcasses were disbursed over vast and remote public lands. The crime was initially reported by off highway vehicle riders who informed federal officials over the weekend. “We are investigating this crime, and we want people with information to call us,” says Supervisory Ranger Patrick Brasington of the Phoenix District Bureau of Land Management. People who have any information may call: 1-800-637-9152. All calls are confidential and a reward of up to $5,000 is offered for information leading to a conviction. The crime is punishable by substantial fines and/or imprisonment.
The incident occurred within the last week on public lands north of the metro area where the BLM manages a naturally-occurring wild burro heard consisting of 280 animals.
According to Brasington, the burros –Jennie, Jacks, and Colts—were shot to death in an area that is accessible on very narrow trails by ATVs, four wheel drive vehicles, or by foot."
