STATEMENT: FORD MOTOR COMPANY INTERVENES TO HELP U.S. GOVERNMENT RESCUE WILD MUSTANGS
NOTE TO EDITOR: The U.S. Bureau of Land Management’s Wild Horse and Burro Program asked Ford Motor Company to intercede to prevent the slaughter of dozens of wild mustangs that had been re-sold and sent to a processing facility. The following statement is from Tim O’Brien, vice president, Corporate Relations – Ford Motor Company:
Dearborn, Mich., April 25 – "The wild mustang has been an inspiration for Ford Motor Company for decades. It saddened us to learn that many wild horses are in jeopardy, and it was an easy decision to help when asked by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management. We are working with this federal government agency to investigate a way to sustain these horses that are such an integral part of American lore and tradition. We hope to work together to develop a broader plan that provides safeguards for the wild mustangs’ continued protection."
