Shawave Roundup, Day 8

Helicopters were grounded over the weekend.  Gather stats through August 10:

  • Horses captured: 852
  • Burros captured: 0
  • Animal deaths: 7

Mares outnumbered studs by 62.  Foals represented 20.7% of the total.

The HMA, part of the Blue Wing Complex, covers 13% of the massive Blue Wing-Seven Troughs allotment but the horses receive just four percent of the authorized forage.

The operation started August 3 with the goal of removing 1,600 horses and 200 burros from the HMA and surrounding lands.  The AML is 136 horses, burros not allowed.
