Calico Gather Wild Horse Deaths

Cloud Foundation Blog

1,326 horses have been gathered from the Calico Complex. Thirteen deaths have occurred - three at the gather site and 10 at the Indian Lakes facility at Fallon, NV. Total mortality (gather sites and short-term holding (STH)) is less than 1 percent. Gather statistics for Nevada (over 26,000 animals were gathered between July 2004 and January 2009) document a mortality rate at gather sites (not including STH facility deaths) of 1.367%. This compares to mortality for the Calico Complex of 0.226% as of January 25, 2010 (gather site only). See Attachment 1.
The following is a summary of horse condition upon their arrival at Indian Lakes, the circumstances for each death, horses in hospital pens on January 23, a statement about horses not adapting to hay, and the treatment protocol for lame horses.
