FY2010 Completed Gathers…

Posted by Texas Mustang Project on May 21, 2011


Messing around this evening with my Excel spreadsheet, I wondered just what the numbers would add up to if I plugged in a formula at the bottom of BLM’s FY 2010 Completed Gather numbers. I knew it had been a lot, but its different when you see it in black and white. T.

 1 “Gather Related Deaths” are defined as animals that died or were euthanized at field gather sites due to acute injuries or medical conditions brought about by the gather and removal process including those that occurred during capture, sorting and holding at the gather site. Includes animals found dead in pens overnight and all animals that died for known or unknown reasons thought to be related to gather activities.  These numbers only include deaths at capture sites and do not include deaths at short-term holding facilities.

2 “Not Gather Related Deaths” are defined as animals that died or were euthanized according to BLM policy at field gather sites for reasons related to chronic or pre-existing conditions such as poor body condition, lameness, serious physical defects, etc. Includes animals that were euthanized for conditions not brought about by the gather activity.  These numbers only include deaths at capture sites and do not include deaths at short-term holding facilities.
3 Final data pending.

    great report except the column for number of deaths is too far over to read on the page and even when u move the bar at bottom they dont show – maybe its me or my computer

    For some reason, they neglected to include these October roundups:
    Adobe Town/Salt Wells (WY) .
    2,269-removed
    318-returned
    9-reported deaths

    East Douglas/Piceance Creek (CO)
    73-removed
    0-returned
    6-reported deaths (I happen to know 3 more died as a result of the roundup)

    If you tally some of the numbers, they do not work AT ALL. Try Black Mt. Burros for starters. How do they come up with that post-gather population from thoe numbers? And there seem to be some missing animals here and there. Poor bookeeping on their part.
