On day 5 at the Confusion roundup 45 wild horses were captured (20 stallions, 17 mares, 8 foals) bringing the total to 208. There have been 3 deaths reported to date.
Many of you watched the video from day 4 of the operation. The chaos and shape of the pen caused multiple collisions. Day 5 began and collision did occur, without serious injury. It is unclear from our vantage if BLM added a panel? swung in panel? after that incident.
We posted a video at the top of the page, edited to show highlights of day 5. Our observer is far enough away that it can take hours to upload, edit and publish content. She was still sending documentation early this morning and we will add edits if needed.
Our observer was able to inspect the trap after the day was completed. She inspected the area of the fatal collision on day 4.
Our observer did to do a “walk around” to check condition of wild horses. It was late in the day.
This was the last day at this trap. She is out at the new trap site today. We will update you as soon as we can.
During one run on day 5 wild horses appeared to be startled by the Judas horse and bolted.
The colt below (featured in video) appeared to be ok after his ordeal.
An amazing escape.
We will update you from day 6 as soon as our observer reports in.
Our legal action against the Confusion EA (spay plan) is awaiting a ruling. We will update you as soon as we receive word.
What you can do
Please take action to demand Congress defund any roundups where the BLM has failed to create open and transparent management planning. Click HERE.
Call the Senate switchboard and ask for your rep. Demand that all actions against wild horses and burros halt until William Perry Pendley leaves the BLM. His tenure was ruled illegal and BLM is still moving an agenda forward for Pendley’s former law clients. Switchboard (202) 224-3121
