Black Mountain Roundup, Part 2, Day 111

The incident began on March 9, a resource enforcement action that follows a wild burro removal in 2020Gather stats through June 27:

  • Burros captured: 209
  • Goal: 500
  • Returned: 0
  • Deaths: 0
  • Shipped: 154

Foals accounted for 15.3% of the burros gathered.  Of the adults, 61% were male and 39% were female, barely inside the expected range of variation produced by a simple random process centered at 50% males / 50% females (p-bar = .5  and n = 209).

Fertility controls will not be applied this year and the incident is not open to public observation.

The number of burros in the unaccounted-for category is 55.

Data quality is good.

Some supplemental statistics:

  • Forage liberated to date: 1,254 AUMs per year
  • Water liberated to date: 1,045 gallons per day
  • Burros displaced from HMA by privately owned livestock: 1,222
