130 Dead Horses

Geez, 130 dead horses?

H/t to Florida Animal Law for this one...

Nevada-Federal officials temporarily shut down the National Wild Horse and Burro Center in northern Nevada, where 130 horses have died from health problems that could pose a threat to workers and visitors.

The voluntary closure of the center about 20 miles (30 kilometers) north of Reno is a preventive measure because the salmonella bacteria found in some of the mustangs can infect people and domestic animals, officials for the U.S. Bureau of Land Management said Wednesday.
