The two have created the foundation to protect New Mexico wildlife. They're working to join a movement to get a temporary restraining order to block the planned opening set for Aug. 5.
New Mexico Attorney General Gary King has also joined the lawsuit which was first brought forth by the Front Range Equine Rescue and Humane Society.
