Government sponsored killing of stray cattle in New Mexico leads to court complaint


When the federal government last started a shooting spree of wild cattle on forest land in New Mexico, some of the carcasses were left rotting in a river.

At least 65 of the cattle were gunned down from helicopters earlier this month.
