A Morrill County rancher convicted of letting more than 200 wild horses and burros starve was not paroled today, but his parole is “pending” according to a spokesman with the parole board. 44-year-old Jason Meduna was sentenced to serve 40 months to 10 years in prison in February of 2010 after being convicted the month before for 145 counts of cruel neglect of an animal resulting in injury, illness or death.
Few issues can stir emotions quicker in Nevada than the subject of wild horses.
Their supporters are passionate. Their detractors are often determined and state and federal officials are often caught in between.
