SEVASTOPOL, Wis. (WFRV) – The Door County Sheriff’s Office has given an update regarding the wild mustang that was on the loose in Door County.
According to deputies, the mustang has been safely secured.
Jesus “Chewy” Jauregaui, along with his brother Teo, roped in the horse.
Jauregui said about his plan action, “First we have to be quiet and see if we can put the rope on the neck. We put [the horse] in the middle of the field and see if we have a good shot. We got it in the first shot.”
A self-proclaimed horse whisperer, Jauregaui knew it was important to approach the horse calmly.
“Horses, they have a fear, but if we chase them, they’ll [become aggressive]. We’re not trying to be aggressive to him, we just try to understand,” Jauregui explains.
In a Facebook post, the Door County Sheriff’s Office said, “We would like to send thanks to Jesus “Chewy” Jauregui, who assisted in corralling the Mustang.”
