Stop Killing the Brumbies

  • by: Anne Novak

Killing 6,000 wild horses in Australia is barbaric. Brumbies are awesome, create biodiversity to reverse desertification and deserve to live.

“The global public is outraged that Australia would condone mass killings of wild horses," states Anne Novak, Executive Director of Protect Mustangs in California. "Are they killing off thousands of horses so they can frack the land for oil and natural gas? We ask that the heinous killings cease immediately.” 

Libby Lovegrove, from the group Wild Horses Kimberley, has described aerial culling as a barbaric act of cruelty. . .

“Nobody’s tried to manage them. They’ve just let them breed up and breed up, and then they go out and shoot them. It’s just totally barbaric.”

Lovegrove has also called into question the number of wild horses in the area, telling local media the numbers described by the association were “wildly inflated”.

We, the undersigned request an immediate moratorium on the Australian Brumby killings, assurance the brumbies will be treated humanely and we encourage eco-tourism because people around the would love wild horses.
