RENO, Nev. (AP) - Two Nevada men who spent six months in prison
for killing federally protected mustangs have avoided additional prison time as part of a plea deal with U.S. prosecutors after they broke a state trapping law.

Joshua Keathley and Todd Davis agreed to forfeit their hunting, fishing and trapping licenses for two years under the plea bargain arrangement U.S. Magistrate Robert McQuaid approved Wednesday in
Reno.

The two Lovelock men also agreed to plead guilty to a misdemeanor citation in state court for failure to visit their steel leg-hold traps within 96 hours.

They could have been returned to prison because they violated conditions of their parole stemming from the 2009 killing of five wild horses. But McQuaid agreed to continue the parole for the final three weeks it's in effect.
