Confusion Roundup Day 11

The incident began on November 29.  Gather stats through December 9:

  • Horses gathered: 303
  • Goal: 500
  • Returned: 1
  • Deaths: 5
  • Shipped: 265

Helicopters were grounded on Day 10 and no deaths were reported on Days 10 and 11.

Foals accounted for 24% of the horses gathered.  Roughly 40% of the captured adults were males and 60% were females.

The cumulative total is 304, according to the gather page.  The discrepancy is probably in the November 30 figures.

Body condition scores on Day 11 ranged from three to five.

The number of unaccounted-for animals is 32.  The contractor may be holding them on site.

The collared mare taken to Swasey may have been part of a research project.  GPS radios are in use at the Frisco HMA, probably elsewhere.
