    Judge halts horse roundup amid abuse allegations

    http://www.centurylink.net/news/read...&cps=0&lang=en

    RENO, Nev. (AP) — A federal judge has temporarily blocked the Bureau of Land Management from rounding up wild mustangs in Nevada after horse protection advocates presented video footage that they say shows wranglers repeatedly abusing mustangs with electric prods in violation of agency policy................

    U.S. District Judge Miranda Du issued the temporary restraining order late Friday. She scheduled a hearing in Las Vegas on Thursday for both sides to present their arguments. She said halting the roundup in the meantime was warranted given the evidence she's seen so far, including video shot by Laura Leigh, president of Wild Horse Education.

    "The public interest is served when actions are taken to prohibit inhumane treatment of wild horses," Du wrote.

    New BLM policy focus: `Compassion' for wild horses

    http://www.centurylink.net/news/read...&cps=0&lang=en

    RENO, Nev. (AP) — The Bureau of Land Management is issuing new policy directives emphasizing "compassion and concern" for wild horses on federal lands in the West, in response to a growing public outcry over alleged abuse during roundups of thousands of mustangs in recent years...........

    But BLM officials said a series of new internal policy directives announced Friday will better protect free-roaming horses and burros by centralizing oversight and stepping up daily reports at each individual gather across 12 Western states.............

    Among other things, helicopter contractors will have to take extra care not to separate slower young animals from their mothers during roundup stampedes.

    When you find yourself in the position to help somebody, do not feel burdened. Rather, feel happy and blessed because God is answering that person's prayer through you. In that moment, you are God's Angel - His door to reach through and bring light to someone who is struggling in the darkness.

    Be God's Light. Be God's love. Be an answered prayer. Be God's Door.
