***On Monday, April 5, BLM’s daily update included two Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) reports. In the report dated March 6, the veterinarian who visited the Indian Lakes Road Facility noted that a mare died while giving birth.  While the mare’s death was recorded in BLM’s veterinarian log book, as well as on an internal BLM death reporting form, it was an oversight that this horse’s information was not reported on the daily facility report on this website.  Therefore, today’s cumulative death total includes this mare’s death.***
