Sheryl Crow is gonna looovvvveeeee this!  On Tuesday Madeleine Pickens, the wife of the Texas oil tycoon T. Boone Pickens, announced she would be creating a refuge for wild horses to help protect the often exploited species. Ecorazzi reported earlier that the government had plans to “control” the herds and “protect” the Western range by killing off thousands of wild horses. WTF??

To help stop the killing, Madeleine has proposed buying about one million acres to serve as a refuge for the horses now in government holding facilities. Tom Gorey, spokesman for the Bureau of Land Management said the office welcomed the offer and agreed to hand over the horses once the land was purchased. 

Besides purchasing land, Pickens will be starting a foundation to raise money for the cause and claims that at her facility no animal will ever be turned down. “It’s such a beautiful sight to see,” Ms. Pickens said. “This is our national heritage, and it needs to be preserved.”

Oh man, what a great story, huh? We love to see those with means helping those without! Keep rocking hard, Ms. Pickens! We think you’re swell!

Why we SHOULDN’T genetically ‘disenhance’ animals

Creating bandaid “solutions” to ethical problems we’ve created doesn’t address the issue at hand

What you can do if live exports disturb you

The outcry should go further than importation and should be directed at the fact that the animals in question were on their way to slaughter in the first place.
