Local residents who remember the flood of 2005 are wondering what's going on at the Universtiy's Main Station Feild Laboratory. The property is where McCarran Boulevard and Mill Street intersect. It's here 380 animals graze, and where seven years ago the loss of 346 sheep forced changes to evacuation procedures during major flooding events
You may remember the story of the starving neglected horses we first told you about in late July. Lyon County Sheriff's office seized the animals from what was suppose to be an animal rescue operation.

It's arguably the biggest game of the year for the Wolf Pack Football Team, which will meet Boise State head-to-head Saturday afternoon at Mackay Stadium While no titles are at stake, it's still huge rivalry, and means money to local businesses to cater to fans.

For the past two years, Stewart Conservation Camp, along with the BLM and the U.S Border Patrol have worked together. Their goal is to supply agents with horses that can work for hours at a stretch monitoring the US Border. Nevada inmates train wild mustangs and prepare them for duty. They have 4 months to complete the task.
The BLM has been rounding up wild horses for years. The agency says its vital to their survival here in Nevada and across the west. The mustangs taken off the range are usually put up for adoption. But before they go to their new homes, some of these animals find themselves in a unique role—teachers to convicts.
