BLM seeks public comment on wild horse eco-sanctuary


The U.S. Bureau of Land Management plans a series of open houses in Northern Nevada in the coming weeks to field public comment about proposals to create a wild horse eco-sanctuary in Elko County.

Madeleine Pickens, the wife of oil tycoon T. Boone Pickens and founder of the group Saving America's Mustangs, wants to operate a sanctuary about 25 miles southeast of Wells to help protect wild horses.

All three meetings will run from 6 to 8 p.m. They will be at the Wells City Hall on Aug. 29; Hyatt Place near Reno-Tahoe International Airport on Aug. 30; and at the Elko Convention Center on Sept. 4.
