Diamond Roundup Day 18

The incident started on September 10.  Gather stats through September 27:

  • Horses captured: 1,111
  • Goal: 1,225
  • Deaths: 25
  • Shipped: 1,020

No deaths occurred on Days 16, 17 and 18.  The death rate is 2.3%.  Foals accounted for 18.2% of the horses gathered to date.

Body condition scores were not provided.  BLM reports 990 horses shipped but the sum of the daily transfers is 1,020.

The contractor is holding 66 horses on site.  Sixty will be returned to the Complex, including 30 mares treated with contraceptives.

The operation will likely conclude this week.  The Complex is managed primarily for livestock and Herd Management Area Plans aren’t going to fix that.
