Wife of Texas billionaire proposes refuge for wild horses in danger of being euthanized

The wife of Texas oil tycoon T. Boone Pickens said Tuesday she'll create a refuge for wild horses, after the federal agency that manages the animals said it may have to kill some to control the herds and protect the Western range.

About 33,000 wild horses and burros roam the open range in 10 Western states. The U.S. Bureau of Land Management wants that population to be about 27,000, in order to protect the herd, the range and other foraging animals.

Those horses that are too old or are unadoptable by the public are sent to long-term holding facilities. The BLM now has about the same number of the animals in holding facilities as on the range.

The agency has said the costs of keeping animals in the holding facilities has caused officials to consider euthanasia as a last-resort.

Madeleine Pickens told The Associated Press that she has proposed purchasing around 1 million acres to be a refuge for the horses now in holding facilities and that the BLM has agreed to give her the horses once she has the land.

BLM spokesman Tom Gorey said the agency welcomes the offer.

"Right now we couldn't be more pleased with her interest, and we hope that materializes so that we can get many of these horses out of holding," he said.

Pickens said animals brought to the refuge will be sterilized, and she will be able to take the extra horses the BLM takes out of the wild each year as well.

"We will never turn an animal down," Pickens said.

Pickens said she is negotiating the purchase of the land but would not say where it was. She's also creating a foundation to help with the project.

"I feel this tremendous relief," Pickens said. "I feel like the wagon is surrounded and instead of being surrounded by evil, it's surrounded by people who are willing to help."

Gorey said that while the BLM has authority to euthanize the surplus horses, it's an option the agency did not want to have to exercise.

A BLM advisory board on wild horses was considering more than a dozen recommendations to help spur public adoptions that have slowed in recent years and to curb population growth as a way to reduce long-term holding costs.
