"Trapping crews had to experiment with techniques to exclude mature bulls from the traps. They also had to work through technical hitches with the automatic gates.They will be kept under observation for three months. During that time, observation will be mostly distant as human activity make the animals nervous. At the end of that time, they will be fitted with GPS collars to track their activity in their new home state. Their next home will be in holding pens at Peck Ranch.
This year’s catch includes seven spike bulls, 21 adult cows, 10 yearling bulls, four yearling cows and four female calves. Nearly all the mature cows are expected to be pregnant."
