Pack horses are often used to haul people and their gear down the eight mile trail to Supai Village in the Grand Canyon. Recently, The Havasupai Tribe has drawn criticism for the alleged abuse and neglect of the horses, as reported by tourists and animal rights groups. Kellye Pinkleton is the Arizona State Director at the Humane Society of the United States. After hearing about the allegations, she led a group of volunteer veterinarians to the village last month to check up on the horses, and work with the tribe. Pinkleton spoke with KNAU's Aaron Granillo.

More than 500-cities worldwide are participating in Saturday’s March For Science. Organizers say it’s a chance to bring awareness to the “very real role” science plays in our lives. Some are concerned the march will fuel the idea that the science community is a special interest group that politicizes its work. Others see it is a chance to celebrate the integrity of research and evidence. Todd Gonzalez is an educator at Lowell Observatory, and a speaker at tomorrow’s march in Flagstaff, one of seven Arizona cities participating. Gonzalez told KNAU’s Aaron Granillo he’s not worried about looking partisan.
