Triple B Week One; A Memorial

 

Week one at Triple B ends with the death of some of our wild ones. We have created this short video of week one. We will have an extensive report out soon. Today we have been in contact with DC on multiple issues regarding management, the budget and this very roundup. To contribute to keep our work going please consider a contribution HERE.

Today (Day 6)  72 wild horses were captured (15 Studs, 34 Mares, and 23 Foals). The cumulative total so far is 488. For reports on the entire roundup go HERE.

The foal in the photo escaped the trap… but was not captured that day. We are reviewing photos to match markings to see if it was captured the next day. We are relatively confident that we saw the same foal captured the following day, but our observations are limited and rely on our ability to enlarge and enhance photos to check subtle markings and that takes time.

We have seen no field spotters at this operation and no notifications of what we see are being conveyed during runs down to the trap. This foal was perfectly matched to the range and hard to see with the naked eye. We will update you soon, we are on it and doing field observations post operation daily.

This is the BLM list of those that have died. We have seen this reasoning used in the past… we did NOT write those. We will write more about that later. For now we simply honor their memory.

We remember you… and will never forget the truth.

We will find a connection that will upload the longer video as soon as possible and the longer report that outlines the underlying story of Triple B… it is a very interesting story. Our connection to this area spans a very long time. Our days are long and our plate is full right now, we will upload soon.
