One Month for Brumbies Consultation


The NSW State Government is asking for community consultation, on methods of culling brumbies.

There are up to 23-and-a-half thousand wild horses in Kosciuszko National Park.

The government says it needs to reduce the population to three-thousand, in four years time.

Ground shooting, and trapping and re-homing are already used.. and aerial shooting is now being considered.

Environment Minister Penny Sharpe says the method is needed, to protect vulnerable species in the region.

But former Nationals M-P Peter Cochran says it’s is inhumane:

The community has until the 11th of September, to give feedback on the plan.
