Judge allows sale of mustangs by tribe

Wild Horse Running

 

RENO,  Nv. — A federal judge has cleared the way for a Nevada tribe to sell 149 mustangs over the objection of critics who say that are federally protected wild horses that should not be auctioned off for possible slaughter.

U.S. District Judge Miranda Du lifted an emergency restraining order she put in place
last week that temporarily blocked the sale of any adult horses that were without brands out of 400 recently gathered near the Nevada-Oregon line.
