Judge refuses to stop horse roundup

RENO, Nev. - A federal judge in Nevada who handed horse-protection advocates a rare victory last fall has rejected their latest bid to block government roundups of free-roaming mustangs in the West, saying they will have to go to Congress if they think the animals are being treated inhumanely and need more protection.

US District Judge Howard McKibben granted a temporary restraining order Aug. 30 that cut short a roundup near the Nevada-Utah line after he said a helicopter flew too close to a horse, violating the law.
