New Road Hazardous to Virginia Range Mustangs?

It is according to a story posted yesterday by KOLO-TV in Reno, NV.  Only a barbed wire fence separates the horses from a new section of the Southeast Connector, but the Regional Transportation Commission plans to build something more substantial over the next month.

Wild horse advocates worry that vehicle collisions with horses will lead to removal of the animals from the area.

The new road, which opens today, should improve traffic flow between residential areas south of Reno and Sparks and employment centers to the north.
