Federal land managers have removed about 250 more wild horses in Nevada after a judge allowed a controversial roundup of the animals to resume.

U.S. Bureau of Land Management spokesman Doran (Dore-an) Sanchez says the roundup in Elko County resumed shortly after U.S. District Judge Larry Hicks on Friday rescinded a temporary restraining order.

He says 54 mustangs were gathered Friday afternoon and another 192 horses were rounded up today.

While most of the animals have been treated for dehydration and water starvation, Sanchez says it's encouraging that other mustangs appear to be drinking water that has been hauled to the range by the agency.

The BLM says four more mustangs died today, bringing to 17 the number of horses that have died since the roundup began last weekend.

RENO, Nev. (AP) — Federal land managers say about 150 more wild horses suffering from dehydration have been gathered in Nevada after a judge allowed a controversial roundup of the animals to resume.

U.S. Bureau of Land Management spokesman Doran Sanchez says the roundup in northern Elko County resumed shortly after U.S. District Judge Larry Hicks on Friday rescinded a temporary restraining order.

He says 54 mustangs were gathered Friday afternoon and another 107 horses were rounded up this morning. He says all of the animals have had to be treated for severe dehydration and water starvation.

A foal suffering from a lack of water was euthanized today, making it the 13th mustang to die of such a cause since the roundup began a week ago. Another horse was euthanized after breaking a leg.
