Desatoya Roundup Ends

Operations concluded on Thursday, according to the daily reports, with 456 wild horses gathered and 24 returned to the HMA.  One death was reported—a six year old stud was put down on the last day due to a club foot.

Of the horses returned to their home range, ten were treated with contraceptives.

Six horses ran through two fences near the trap site on December 6 but were captured and treated for minor injuries.
