Fox-Lake Range Roundup Over

The incident ended today, according to a BLM news release.  Here are the final results from the gather page:

  • Horses captured: 82
  • Horses shipped: 19
  • Horses returned: 23
  • Horses to be returned: 37
  • Horses deceased: 4

The numbers don’t balance.

19 + 23 + 37 + 4 ≠ 82

More horses were processed than captured.

No foals were taken.  Of the adults, 46% were male and 54% were female.

The death rate was 4.9%.

If the herd was growing at a rate fifteen to twenty percent per year, 16 to 20 foals should have been pushed into the traps.  But none were.  Why?
