Eagle Roundup Day 8

The incident began on January 6.  Gather stats through January 13:

  • Horses captured: 331
  • Goal: 1,131
  • Returned: 0
  • Deaths: 5
  • Shipped: 253

A mare was put down on Day 6 due to injuries related to the gather.  Another mare was put down on Day 7 due to pre-existing conditions.

No youngsters have been gathered.  Roughly 45% of captured adults were males and 55% 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 331 – 5 – 253 = 73.  The contractor is probably holding them on site.

Some of the mares will be treated with contraceptives and returned to the range.
