Eagle Update Day 3


13th: 48 wild horses captured (18 studs, 19 mares, 11 foals). One euthanized for a tumor on lip, 4 yr old bay stud)

14th: 32 captured (8 studs, 13 mares, 11 foals)

15th: 26 captured (update: 2 year old stallion euthanized for “sway back”)

Total: 106 captured, one death (update, two deaths)

Today trap moved. Observation was better but still no ability to observe loading. Wind kicked up; intense. Operations called early. Will resume at same trap tomorrow.

BLM is having difficulty updating the website accurately and giving total counts. We believe this issue will now be addressed.

Several wild ones escaped the trap. In one instance a small family joined a large group that escaped on the first try. On the second try they veered away.. The third attempt they broke from the larger group t the trap mouth and escaped. The pilot began to pursue and then let the small family go.

Just a few pics of that small family. We will edit video when time (and a better internet connection) allows. We scouted Silver King after trap broke as a removal is expected later this year.

We apologize for this brief update. We are running on little sleep.

Help us fight back.


This is “big picture” time.
