Senator Reid Pushes For Investigation of 71 Dead Wild Horses George Knapp KLAS-TV 8 News (Las Vegas, NV) August 24, 2007Nevada Senator Harry Reid wants to know what killed 71 wild horses on the Nellis Air Force Base Range. The BLM says high concentrations of nitrates killed the horses. Now the senator wants the Pentagon to launch a full scale investigation to find out how the nitrates got in the horses drinking water.
Senator Reid wrote to the Secretary of Defense and the Secretary of the Interior, asking them to find out how and why the horses died on the Tonopah Test Range. The initial explanation that the nitrates which poisoned the water might be from a natural source isn't going over too well with wild horse advocates, especially since the military has shown a callous attitude toward wild horses many times in the past.
Wild horse advocates like Jerry Reynoldson aren't buying the initial explanations given for why 71 horses died on the Tonopah Test Range. "If somebody has done this on purpose, there's not a lot of difference between Michael Vick killing dogs and someone killing 71 wild horses out there," he said.
