Paiute Roundup Draws Lawsuit

A wild horse advocacy group and Palomino Valley resident have joined forces to sue the Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe for taking privately owned horses from private property during the tribal roundup in Palomino Valley, NV earlier this month.  Refer to this story, posted today by KOLO-TV in Reno.

Also named in the suit are the Nevada Department of Agriculture, Cattoor Livestock Roundup, Inc., the tribe’s contractor, Zena Quillan, a woman who allegedly bought the captured horses from the tribe and sent them to slaughter, and two Department of Agriculture employees.

What’s the punishment nowadays for horse theft?  Why isn’t this a criminal case?
