Silver King Roundup Day 3

The incident began on February 7.  Gather stats through February 9:

  • Horses captured: 162, up from 41 on Day 1
  • Goal: 283
  • Returned: 0
  • Deaths: 0, no change from Day 1
  • Shipped: 39, up from 0 on Day 1

No foals have been caught to date.  Roughly 48% of captured adults are male and 52% are female.  Some of the mares are probably within a few weeks of foaling.

Body condition scores are not known.

The number of unaccounted-for animals is 123.

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

Gather activity will likely conclude this week.
