The incident began on September 1.  Gather stats through October 3:

No horses were caught on Days 21, 23, 25, 26, 27, 29, 30, 32 and 33.

The death rate is 2.6%.

Foals represented 14.8% of the horses gathered.  Of the adults, 46.3% were male and 53.7% were female.

An estimate of the forage assigned to livestock, and the number of wild horses displaced thereby, should be a straightforward task.

The number of horses the HMA can support, the True AML, can be computed from those estimates, even though the advocates say it’s almost impossible to determine.

One thought on “Stone Cabin Roundup Day 33

  1. If all livestock were removed from the public lands the agenda to exterminate wild equids would still accelerate until the Resource Management Plans are amended to include Wild Equids as a Native American natural historic cultural RESOURCE . Tom PogacnikDeputy State Director, Natural Resources Bureau of Land Management wrote to me and former CA state Senator Bill Morrow:
    The WH&B program has provision for developing an Herd Area Management Plan designed to implement management actions or areas designated as Herd Management Areas through the land use plan. If the public has quantifiable data which shows there may be an error, they need to provide those data to petition BLM to reconsider the decision. I know of cases where the public provided maps that had not been considered during the RMP/HMA decision.
    “The term eligible for inclusion in the National Register includes both properties formally determined as such in accordance with regulations of the Secretary of the Interior and all other properties that meet the National Register criteria.” See Boyd v. Roland, 789 F.2d 347, 349 (5th Cir. 1986) (“we conclude that eligible property is not restricted to property that has been officially determined eligible for inclusion in the National Register. Other courts have reached this same conclusion. In Colorado River Indian Tribes v. Marsh, 605 F. Supp. 1425, 1437 (C.D. Cal. 1985), the court concluded that: “What is an eligible property for purposes of NHPA turns upon the inherent historical and cultural significance of the property and not opinion of its worth by the Secretary of the Interior.” See also Hough v. Marsh, 557 F. Supp. 74 (D. Mass. 1982); WATCH v. Harris, 603 F.2d 310 (2d Cir.), cert. denied, sub nom., Waterbury Urban Renewal Agency v. Waterbury Action to Conserve our Heritage, Inc., 444 U.S. 995 . . . (1979) (implicitly reaching this conclusion); Morris County Trust for Historic Preservation v. Pierce, 714 F.2d 271 (3d Cir. 1983) (implicitly reaching this conclusion).”)

    In Mar of 2016 Karen.Miner@wildlife.ca.gov stated “ When and if available scientific information convinces the experts that determine the checklist of native species to North America that Equus caballus should be considered as an indigenous species, they will make the change in the next revision to the list.” YET to date, all responsible agencies have blatantly ignored the widely published mitochondrial DNA evidence of origin and geographic distinctions.
