LAS VEGAS (AP) — Four veteran jail officers won't face criminal charges in a fatal struggle with an inmate in a Clark County Detention Center more than a year ago.

LAS VEGAS (AP) — The U.S. Department of Agriculture says a circus act featured at two Harrah's casinos in Nevada has been treating its big cats poorly. The department cited Dirk Arthur's Wild Magic show in December for declawing lions and tigers, keeping a snow leopard in a rusty cage and chaining a bobcat in a dangerous way. The USDA also found that the animals' cages were too small.
