CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — The U.S. Bureau of Land Management is seeking people’s thoughts and ideas for a proposed wild horse sanctuary north of Lander.

The sanctuary on the 900-acre Double D Ranch would be the second of its kind in Wyoming. The BLM recently helped to establish a wild horse sanctuary near Centennial in southeast Wyoming.

This new sanctuary would be located on the Wind River Indian Reservation and could take in as many as 250 horses.

The horses would be gathered from overpopulated herds in Wyoming and possibly elsewhere. The BLM is taking comments on the proposal during a scoping period that ends March 4.

Double D owner Dwayne Oldham is a former Wyoming state veterinarian. Oldham said Tuesday he wants to help the BLM control wild horse numbers on Western rangelands.
