Wild horses at risk

Wild horses at risk

The government is rounding up wild horses and burros in Colorado, Nevada and the surrounding area to and moving them to holding pens for auction.  The Bureau of Land Management says they need to do this because of overgrazing, drought and starvation.

But critics say these roundups are unnecessary and the method of using helicopters to round up the animals is cruel.  The Department of the Interior says “The Department of the Interior and the Bureau of Land Management have worked hard to reform the program to advance the humane care and management of America’s wild horses and to protect our public lands.”

Another "Stand Your Ground" shooting?

Michael David Dunn is facing murder charges after he opened fire on an SUV full of teenagers on Friday night. Dunn pulled his car next to the SUV at a convenient store and, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office, he asked them to turn down their music. After words were exchanged, Dunn allegedly opened fire killing 17-year-old Jordan Russell.

Dunn’s attorney says that Dunn opened fire because he was threatened by the teens and he says he saw a gun in the SUV. Dunn has pleaded not-guilty and is being held without bail.
