The operation concluded on October 23 with 126 burros gathered, 126 shipped and no deaths. The goal was 80. The number of animals remaining in the HA is not known.
Foals accounted for 20.6% of the total. Of the captured adults, 42% were jacks and 58% were jennies.
A foal refused to follow its mother into the trap on the last day of the roundup so the mom was released.
