Eagle Roundup Day 3

The incident began on January 6.  Gather stats through January 8:

  • Horses captured: 116
  • Goal: 1,131
  • Returned: 0
  • Deaths: 0
  • Shipped: 0

No youngsters have been gathered.  Roughly 42% of captured adults were males and 58% were females.  Some of the mares are probably within a few weeks of foaling.

Body condition scores are not known.

The HMA of origin was not reported.  Three HMAs are involved in the roundup.

The number of unaccounted-for animals is 116.  They are probably being held on site.

Some of the mares will be returned to their home range after receiving GonaCon, a contraceptive that may actually work like a sterilant.
