Onaqui Roundup Over

Gather operations ended today with 435 horses captured, one death and one returned, according to figures at the gather page.

The goal was 400.

Foals accounted for 10.8% of the total.  Of the adults, 47.9% were male and 52.1% were female.  The number of unaccounted-for animals was zero.

The incident liberated 5,208 AUMs per year for other mandated uses of public lands.

UPDATE: The AUMs liberated will be reduced by the horses returned to the HMA, including those treated with contraceptives.  The final figure may be closer to 4,000 AUMs per year, assuming 100 horses returned.
