Silver King Update

Cumulative totals for the Silver King roundup, as of 12/06/18:

  • 625 animals gathered
  • 11 animal deaths
  • 0 animals returned to range

The pre-gather population density, per the original announcement, was 2.1 horses per thousand acres, about one fourth the population density of livestock in Nevada.

The post-gather population density of 0.4 animals per thousand acres means the HMA will almost be a horse-free zone, good news for the public-lands ranchers.
