Devil’s Garden Roundup Day 6

The incident began on September 16.  Reports covering activity through September 21 have been posted to the Modoc news page:

  • Type: Planned
  • Method: Helicopter
  • Horses captured: 100
  • Average daily take: 16.7
  • Capture goal: 600
  • Removal goal: 600
  • Returned: Unknown
  • Deaths: Unknown
  • Shipped: Unknown

The progress report for Days 3 and 4 was a bit confusing.  The correct interpretation is that helicopters were grounded on Day 4 and no horses were gathered.  The cumulative total through Day 4 was 49, not 98.

Foals represented 14.0% of the horses captured.  Of the adults, 51.2% were male and 48.8% were female.

Body condition scores were not provided.

The number of unaccounted-for animals is not known.
