Our Oatman Town Burros
The wild burros are the offspring of the burros transported here in the late 1800s. They were used by the miners to carry essential supplies, including rock and metals in those days. And now as the mining days no more exist, what has lingered here are the burros. Every morning, the burros wander in the town seeking food and greeting the tourists.
The Oatman Burros are protected under the Wild Horse and Burro Act of 1971, are Federally Protected and maintained by the United States Department of the Interior. After a gentleman’s agreement with BLM, visitors can feed the Oatman Burros Hay Cubes which are readily available in the town for only $1.00 per bag.
