Devil’s Garden Roundup Over

The Forest Service reported this morning that the operation ended on October 3, with 506 horses gathered and one death.  The number of horses shipped was not provided.

The sum of the daily reports indicates 502 horses captured.  Foals accounted for approximately 16% of the total.

Do the numbers balance?  Who knows.

The WHT was not overpopulated.  The AML was minimized to maximize the resources available to privately owned livestock, referred to as the ‘economy of Modoc county’ in the news release.
