Confusion Roundup Day 9

The incident began November 29.  Gather stats through December 7:

  • Horses captured: 270
  • Goal: 500
  • Returned: 1
  • Deaths: 5
  • Shipped: 226

No deaths were reported on Days 8 and 9.

Foals accounted for 24% of the total since Day 1.  Of the captured adults, 40% were males and 60% were females.

The number of horses captured is 271, according to the gather page.  The discrepancy is probably in the November 30 figures.

Body condition scores on Days 8 and 9 were mostly threes and fours.

The number of unaccounted-for animals is 38.  The contractor may be holding them on site.

One mare was collared and returned to the Swasey HMA.  The date when that occurred is not known.  Was it the horse taken to Delta on November 30?
