Stop culling (shooting) of Brumbies

Stop culling (shooting) of Brumbies

Please do not consider culling (shooting) of the Brumbies in National Parks and more specifically the Kosciusko National Park. It is a method that is extremely inaccurate and will result in great cruelty to the animals.

Why is this important?

We must prevent culling (shooting) of our Brumby in the Snowy Mountains. It is a method that results in extreme cruelty to an animal (remember Guy Fawke's National Park) who is an integral part of our history, heritage, and poetry.
Our Brumby has been in the Snowy Mountains region for well over a century and should be admired rather than vilified as vermin to be destroyed.
We do not want to be scratching our collective heads in 20 years time asking "what happened to our Brumbies, we can only see them in the museum now"

Reasons for signing

  • I signed because I have been involved with horses my whole life, and am very passionate about their survival in the wild. When I hear of people culling and shooting them, it saddens me. They are the most beautiful creature on this planet and they deserve to life a free life just as we do.
  • I'm a massive horse person. I hate seeing them like this it's just completely unfair!! They deserve to live just like we do.
  • They have evolved over the past 150 years and deserve the right to exist, put horses to Productive use rather than butchering them.
