Judge Weighs Suspension of Pancake Roundup

A story by AP News indicates that a ruling is expected by Monday, possibly sooner.

A Justice Department lawyer, representing the BLM, said a delay of even two or three days would prevent the agency from completing the roundup before the end of the year, noting that helicopters cannot be used to drive the herds into the traps from March 1 to June 1 when mares typically are pregnant and give birth.

As of January 24, Day 14 of the roundup, foals represented 13% of the horses captured.

With an average daily take of 70, the capture goal should be reached within two weeks.
