Red Desert Roundup Day 9

The incident started on October 10.  Gather stats through October 18:

  • Horses captured: 598
  • Goal: 2,400
  • Deaths: 1
  • Returned: 90
  • Shipped: 339

No activity on Day 8 due to weather.  Foals accounted for 23.7% of the total.  The sex ratio of captured adults is approximately 45% males, 55% females.

The reports did not indicate the HMA(s) where the horses were captured or released.

Of the horses returned, 46 were “treated with fertility control.”  No details were given.

Body condition scores are not known.

The imbalance is 168 horses.  The contractor may be holding them on site.

The release of horses back to their home range may indicate the operation is finished in one area and will resume in another.  Five HMAs are affected.
