((denise valdez)) investigators have produced few leads and no dozen wild horses at an eco-sanctuary in northern nevada. the horses died after vandals cut off the water supplies inside a private preserve in elko county. a reward of 100-thousand dollars is being offered by the property owner... but she is not confident the culprits will be found. the i-team's george knapp has an update.
5:07 pm
dozen wild horses in the goshute valley, part of the sprawling mustang monument project owned by madeleine pickens. state agriculture officials say they won't comment about their investigation, but then did--pointing a finger at pickens. this week, two more dead horses were found, along with other spots where her fencing had been cut by vandals. the elko county sheriff's office, which is a partner in the investigation, said it appears that some of the horses had been dead for weeks. she hired was supposed to make regular checks on the goshute herd, which is more than an hour's drive from the main herd and ranch house but investigators reportedly have not yet spoken to him about how often he checked. pickens paid to rescue the horses and installed the water system that worked fine until someone sabotaged it. madeleine pickens on the phone: no question, this was not an accident. this wasn't just one well that went off or something in the solar panel that didn't work.
5:08 pm
((george knapp)) pickens says the goshute herd was essentially self sufficient, living as wild horses do on the open range, with plenty of food and water. elko sheriffs told the i-team one theory is that good samaritans or horse advocates might have done it in order to free the horses from their 12,000 acre fenced range. animal activists plan to create a santuary for rescued mustangs. comments posted in the elko newspaper show many in that cattle-friendly community harbor harsh opinions about pickens operation. pickens says the fact that the perpetrators turned off the water suggests it was an act of violence aimed at the horses. her property has been vandalized several times before, and gun toting locals have pumped bullets into her facilities.
5:09 pm
so far. a state hotline is also up and running. pickens has offered a 100,000 dollar reward for information and is asking the tips be directed to her organization rather than to state investigators or police. george knapp 8 news now. ((denise valdez)) >> by odd coincidence, another rescued mustang was found dead this week. it had been stabbed and killed at a different horse sanctuary in southern idaho. on our website, we have a link to that story, plus the phone as information on the 100-thousand dollar reward./// ((dave courvoisier)) the countdown continues... just four more days until the first day of school. but safety advocates aren't wasting any time making drivers aware of their responsibility come monday morning. (( erin breen//unlv vulnerable road users project expect kids to do the unexpected. they're excited they're going back to school. believe it or not some kids are happy being there. they do things that children would do. so if you're not paying full attention, you may not have the opportunity to not
5:10 pm
)) ((dave courvoisier)) >> some tips for parents... leave early.. and expect there to be more traffic on the roads. for kids walking... always look both ways before crossing./// ((dave courvoisier)) rumors continue to swirl over how serious the talks are to bring the raiders to las vegas. ((denise valdez)) >> just today... the team filed trademarks to the phrase "las vegas raiders". meanwhile... moving forward. ((dave courvoisier)) >> the cost for what could one day be the new home for the raiders.... just shy of 2-billion dollars. and as mauricio marin explains... that price tag is at the center of a heated debate. ((mauricio marin)) >> it looks like it's coming down to 750-million dollars. that's how much developers want to come from public money for the proposed n-f-l stadium or no deal.
5:11 pm
the stadium. private investment would pay the rest of the cost. the total proposed cost is just under 2-billion dollars. another big move today---two locations have been proposed. the first spot is land north of russell road just west of interstate-15. the second area on the bali hai golf course. developers say the stadium would draw in more visitors to las vegas. and the risk falls on private investors. ((andy abboud/las vegas sands: "the beauty of this project is the backup of any cost over runs falls on the private developers, in this case the adeo stadium didn't perform in the worst case scenario immediately, which we don't anticipate, and didn't perform extremely strong then the risk of that falls on the adelsons. the risk dosen't fall on the tax payers." )) ((mauricio marin)) >> there is a time crunch in all this. the committee needs to make it's recommendation to the governor who will have to call a special session. and it will be up to the legislature to approve the funding. the raiders also need plans to move forward before the new year so n-f-l owners can approve the
5:12 pm
there is a committee meeting set for next month... but both sides hope to have a recommendation done before that date. because time is running out. ((mauricio marin)) we asked you on facebook whether public money should be used for this stadium.... more than 3-thousand people have voted... and so far 59-percent of you say no... while 32-percent support it./// >> at the end of the day though--- developers say the stadium would be publicly owned despite private investment involved.
