Eagle Roundup Day 33

The incident began on January 6.  Gather stats through February 7:

  • Horses captured: 977, up from 883 on Day 31
  • Goal: 1,131
  • Returned: 0
  • Deaths: 23, up from 22 on Day 31
  • Shipped: 848, up from 749 on Day 31

One death occurred on Day 32 due to pre-existing conditions.  The overall death rate is now 2.4%, down slightly from 2.5% on Day 31.

One foal has been caught to date.  Roughly 45% of captured adults are male and 55% are female.  Some of the mares are probably within a few weeks of foaling.  Some may have foaled in the off-range corrals.

The gather page says 849 horses shipped, which does not match the sum of the figures supplied therewith.

391 + 456 + 1 ≠ 849

Body condition scores are not known.

The location of current operations is not known.  Three HMAs are involved in the roundup.

The number of unaccounted-for animals is 106, down from 112 on Day 31.

Some of the mares will be treated with contraceptives and returned to the range but no such activity has been reported.  Some may receive GPS radio transmitters.

The roundup will likely conclude this week.
