Madeline Pickens to the rescue
From a Washington Post story that appeared in the Denver Post today:
"Madeleine Pickens, wife of billionaire T. Boone Pickens, made known her intentions to adopt not just the doomed wild horses but most or all of the 30,000 horses and burros kept in federal holding pens."
"Madeleine Pickens is working with the BLM staff to adopt the horses, said Henri Bisson, the bureau's deputy director, while the agency persuades Congress to shift $20 million in funding to feed and protect the horses now in captivity for another year."
She apparently plans to create a ranch sanctuary for the animals which will be open to the public.
Here's the URL of the original story:
I'm not sure of the details or how it will all work, but Mrs. Pickens deserves immense credit for using her own resources to come up with a non-taxpayer funded solution to this problem-- and avoid massive euthanizing thousands of horses.
