Red Desert Roundup Day 25

The event started October 10.  Gather stats through November 3:

  • Horses captured: 1,851
  • Goal: 2,400
  • Deaths: 9
  • Returned: 150
  • Shipped: 1,246

No gather activity on Day 23.

Two deaths occurred on Day 23 and three on Day 25, all due to pre-existing conditions.

Foals accounted for 22.2% of the horses gathered since October 10.  Of the captured adults, approximately 46% were males and 54% were females.  Body condition scores are not known.

Thirty two horses were returned to their home range since the last update.  The number treated with fertility control is now 75.

The number of unaccounted-for horses is 446.  The contractor may be holding them on site.

The release of captured horses may indicate the operation has concluded in one area and has resumed in another.

The reports don’t say where the helicopters are flying.  Five HMAs are involved in the roundup.
