Stone Cabin Roundup Day 18

The incident began on September 1.  Gather stats through September 18:

  • Type: Emergency
  • Method: Bait
  • Horses captured: 261, up from 207 on Day 12
  • Average daily take: 14.5
  • Capture goal: 450
  • Removal goal: 450
  • Returned: 0
  • Deaths: 8, up from 7 on Day 12
  • Shipped: 231, up from 193 on Day 12

No horses were caught on Days 13, 14, 16 and 17.  Previously, no gather activity was reported on Day 12 but now the page shows 24 horses captured.  The cumulative total of 256 does not agree with the sum of the daily numbers.

One horse was put down on Day 15 because of fractured neck, taking the death rate to 3.1%.

The rate at Stone Cabin, where horses are baited into the traps, is ten times higher than that for the cruel and inhumane helicopter roundup at Sand Wash Basin, so described by the advocates.

Foals represented 14.6% of the horses gathered.  Of the adults, 46.6% were male and 53.4% were female.

Body condition scores were not reported.

Day 18 ended with 22 unaccounted-for animals.
