Horse Sanctuaries as a Solution for Wild Horses

Madeleine Pickens purchased 14,000 acres of ranch land east of Elko near the Utah border.  Her plan is to create a horse sanctuary for up to 900 wild mustangs.  But, not everyone is on board with this idea.  The Nevada Association of Counties is preparing a lawsuit against the BLM in hopes of circumventing the sanctuary.
