An animal rescue group is asking for your help in finding whoever dumped four horses near Keno.

The horses were rescued late last week along Highway 66 about 10 miles West of Keno.

Nadine Hoy of 'Project Spirit' says they may have been abandoned as long as a month ago.

She says "they're broke, they're nice, they're very malnourished. Their feet are horrendous, they have not been cared for.  And obviously someone decided just to drop them off, because there's no other way they could get up there."

If you have any information you can contact 'Project Spirit' at the number on your screen, or go to the 'Project Spirit Horse Rescue' Facebook page.

KOTI-TV NBC2 reporter Lyle Ahrens moved from Nebraska to Klamath Falls in the late 1970's.  He instantly fell in love with the mountains, the trees and the rivers, and never once regretted the move.

Lyle's job history is quite colorful.  He’s managed a pizza parlor; he’s been a bartender, and a “kiwifruit grader” at an organic orchard in New Zealand.  A Klamath Falls radio station hired Lyle in the mid 90's as a news writer and commercial producer.  In 2004, Lyle joined the KOTI/KOBI news operation.

Lyle notes with pride that he has a big responsibility presenting the Klamath Basin to a wide and varied audience.  "The on-going water crisis has underscored the fact that the people and the issues in the Klamath Basin are every bit as diverse as the terrain.  Winning and keeping the trust of the viewers, as well as the newsmakers, is something I strive for with each story".

When he's not busy reporting the news, Lyle enjoys astronomy, playing guitar, fixing old radios and listening to anything by Sheryl Crow.
