Black Mountain Roundup Day 31

The operation started on September 23.  Gather stats through October 23:

  • Burros captured: 302
  • Goal: 500
  • Deaths: 2
  • Returned: 0
  • Shipped: 253

Foals accounted for 14.2% of the total.  Of the captured adults, approximately 53% were jacks and 47% were jennies.  The cumulative total says 300 animals captured.

One death occurred on October 23, when a four year old jenny was put down due to a broken neck.  Her foal was adopted out.  Neither animal was included in the Day 31 figures so the incident may have occurred in a holding pen involving animals previously gathered.  Should the foal be counted as an animal shipped?

There were 302 – 2 – 253 = 47 unaccounted-for burros as of October 23.  BLM staff may be holding them on site.
