Judge To Allow NV Wild Horse Roundup To Continue

Posted:

RENO, Nev. (AP) -- A federal judge today said he intends to reject a temporary restraining order sought by animal rights activists to halt a wild-horse roundup in northern Nevada after 13 mustangs died.

U.S. District Judge Larry Hicks says he's influenced by a new U.S. Bureau of Land Management report that concluded over 500 horses in northern Elko County could die of dehydration in the next week if the roundup doesn't continue.

Hicks, after a two-hour hearing today, said he intends to issue a formal ruling Friday. The BLM suspended the gather over the weekend when seven horses died of dehydration and water intoxication after being herded by helicopter on the first day of the roundup. Six other mustangs have since died.
