Judge Grants TRO to Stop Sale of Wild Horses At NV Slaughter Auction

Order could delay tomorrow’s sale of nearly 500 horses at Fallon Livestock Exchange
Reno, Nevada (August 16, 2013 . . . A federal court judge in Reno, NV has granted a coalition of wild horse advocacy and conservation groups a Temporary Restraining Order to block the sale of unbranded horses at a slaughter auction tomorrow in Fallon, Nevada. The groups sued to stop the sale of unbranded horses who were captured last weekend on public and tribal lands in northern Nevada, alleging that unbranded horses were likely federally-protected wild horses originating from the nearby Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Little Owyhee Herd Management Area.
