The repercussions of a winter helicopter roundup: At least 60 horses have died, 53 in the Fallon holding facility, and likely a total of over 35 late-term abortions. The BLM is not allowing the public to observe the freeze-branding, processing, and innoculating of the horses being run through the shoots. On Saturday: “Two year old mare died on her own due to a spinal injury. Injury was related to a larger horse backing into her during approach to the squeeze chute.” According to BLM daily reports (online here).
