This week a federal judge in Nevada will hear arguments regarding the Bureau of Land Management's roundups of wild Mustangs. Wild Horse Education is the advocacy group fighting to change this practice. Laura Leigh, founder of the group, has video taped thousands of hours of footage showing abuse at these round ups. The BLM has admitted that electrict prods were used, but within the pre-established guidelines. What will this week's hearing mean for the future of mustangs?
