Here are the five things you need to know before you go this Wednesday morning.
5. New Mexico has made another list, and this on is an embarrassment..
We ranked fifth in the nation for animal abuse.
That’s according to the Animal Legal Defense Fund, a non-profit organization analyzing animal protection laws.
It says New Mexico has poor felony provisions for animal neglect or abandonment, and no law requiring veterinarians to report suspected abuse.
4. A family and animal control officials are trying to figure out what killed 14 chickens in one back yard near Central and Old Coors.
One of two latches was undone, the chickens necks were broken , and a neighbors rabbit was also found dead.
3. UNM student may feel a little safer when walking campus at night. The University has been installing LED safety lights since Spring.
Phase one is complete, and phase two is underway. When student return from Winter break, they’ll come back to a much better lighted campus.
2. Water rates may be going up in Albuquerque and Bernalillo County . Metro area consumers reduced their use, as requested, which resulted in the ABC Water Control Authority losing about $1 Million. Water Authority officials says they’ll try to hold the line against a rate hike as long as possible.
1. A little cloudier today, with mild temperatures. There’s also high fire danger in the eastern plains.
