RENO, Nev. —Federal land managers have removed about 250 more wild horses from a Nevada range after a judge allowed a controversial roundup of the animals to resume.
U.S. Bureau of Land Management spokesman Doran Sanchez said the roundup in northern Elko County began again shortly after U.S. District Judge Larry Hicks on Friday rescinded a temporary restraining order.
The judge took the action at the request of the agency, which maintained that more than 500 horses could die of dehydration in the next week if the roundup didn't continue.
Horse advocates had sought to halt the roundup, saying it was inhumane to herd the animals by helicopter to trap sites in the hot summer temperatures.
Small plane crashes into street, killing two
SOUTH PORTLAND, Maine — Two people were killed Saturday when the small plane they were in crashed into a city street shortly after taking off from Portland International Jetport, officials said.
The Yak-52, a Soviet training aircraft introduced in the 1970s, crashed at about 3:30 p.m. on Western Avenue, a normally busy road lined with strip malls, retail outlets, offices and two semiconductor manufacturing plants.
Two people aboard the two-seater plane were killed, but their identities were not being released, said South Portland Fire Chief Kevin Guimond. There were no injuries reported on the ground.
Justin Crabtree, 32, of Portland, was leaving a nearby Staples store when he saw the plane make a sharp turn before diving.
"It was just a sharp turn and straight down to the ground," he said.
