Poor judgment, indeed

By Bob Silbernagel

Take two Nevada rednecks. Add alcohol, an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle and wild horses in an isolated area north of Reno, and the horses end up the losers.

Five wild horses were killed last November near the California-Nevada border. On Wednesday, the two men accused of doing the shooting changed their pleas from guilty to not guilty in federal court in Nevada.

"We'd been drinking a little," said Todd Davis, one of the two. "We saw some horses and used poor judgment and shot a few of them."

Most people who love horses -- wild or domestic -- would probably call it something other than poor judgment. But at least Davis and his shooting companion, Joshua Keathley, 36, will now face justice for their actions.They could each spend a year in prison and face fines of up to $100,000.
