Eagle Roundup Day 38

Cumulative totals through 02-22-20, per the BLM roundup page for the Eagle Complex:

  • 1,716 animals gathered
  • 23 deaths (1.3%)
  • 766 studs (44.8%)
  • 945 mares (55.2%)
  • 5 new foals (2019 foals counted as adults)

The proportions of mares and studs are still outside of statistical limits corresponding to n = 1,711 and p-bar = .50.  The number of mares removed from the area is assignably larger than the number of studs.  Why?

The gather target of 1,700 horses has been achieved.  Approximately 100 horses were to be returned but that hasn’t been reported yet.

The horses are not starving when their population exceeds AML, they’re robbing too much forage from the most noble and deserving inhabitants of public-lands: Privately owned livestock.
