The Bureau of Land Management says the operation is scheduled to begin Tuesday in a public land study area known as the Triple B Complex.
The complex covers about 2,500-square-miles in the bureau’s Elko and Ely districts.
A statement says helicopters will be used during the anticipated four-week roundup, with the aim to reduce the number of wild horses from an estimated 3,400 to about 2,600.
The bureau says agents will escort public observers at pre-scheduled times, and captured horses will be checked by a veterinarian and offered for adoption or sale through a bureau program in Sparks.
