US judge denies bid to block NV mustang roundups
US judge denies bid for court order to block NV horse roundups; tells critics 'Go to Congress'
By The Associated Press

RENO, Nev. (AP) ' A federal judge in Nevada has rejected another attempt by horse protection advocates to block government roundups of free-roaming mustangs in the West.

U.S. District Judge Howard McKibben granted a temporary restraining order last fall that cut short a Nevada roundup after he determined a helicopter flew too close to a horse in violation of the law.

But he said during a hearing in Reno Thursday he denied a new injunction request partly because the Bureau of Land Management has made some positive changes since then.

He also told leaders of the Texas-based Free Wild Horse Federation he doesn't have the ability or authority to police every roundup in the country. He says if the horses need more protection, the group will have to take it up with Congress.
