Black Mountain Roundup, Part 2, Day 156

The incident began on March 9, a resource enforcement action that follows a wild burro removal in 2020Gather stats through August 11:

  • Burros captured: 369, up from 303 on Day 132
  • Average take: 2.4 burros per day
  • Capture goal: 500
  • Removal goal: 500
  • Returned: 0
  • Deaths: 0
  • Shipped: 306, up from 209 on Day 132

Foals represented 15.2% of the burros gathered.  Of the adults, 59.1% were male and 40.9% were female, not what you’d expect to find in a sample of n = 313 adults taken from a simple random process centered at 50% males / 50% females.

There were 63 burros in the unaccounted-for category at the end of Day 156.

Gather ops are not open to public observation.

Supplemental statistics:

  • AML: 478
  • Pre-gather population: Unknown
  • Forage liberated to date: 2,214 AUMs per year
