Swazy, Utah - Gather

Will they actually do the PZP treatment on this gather? Several this FY (Desatoya and Owyhee) they have not bothered to treat the ones that were scheduled: Desatoya because the BLM stated the horses were hiding in the trees after the main gather, and at Owhyee because they had gathered over the number stated in the EA.

Of course, it's against the contractor's financial interests to do the treat and release. A lower birth rate means fewer horses to gather the next time (or fewer gathers) and that means less money for SunJ and Cattoor.
