Scare tactics and exaggerated “evidence-based facts” are being used to prey on the public’s lack of knowledge, and gain support for Brumby eradication.
Parks Victoria have ignored offers from homes that are ready and waiting to accept wild horses, choosing cruelty over kindness.
Hunters shoot innocent horses from a distance, send dogs out to cause them further harm, and finally, the hunters approach the helpless and defenseless horses, shooting them again, causing an unnecessarily long and painful death.
Beginning in August, hunters with dogs will enter Barmah, Bogong and the Eastern Alps to shoot free ranging wild horses. Despite other alternatives to manage the issue of wild horses that don’t involve killing, such as fertility control and rehoming (which is working in New Zealand), the Victorian government has instead chosen slaughter.
Throughout several Freedom of Information documents obtained by Friends of Wild Horses Australia, there is proof that Parks Victoria (a State Government agency) is being deceitful about multiple facets of their horse shooting plan.
To help save the lives of these innocent horses, please write to the Victorian cross bench whose details you can find on this post:

Please share this post, and related information so we can raise awareness about this issue that has somehow managed to slip under the radar. The more people-power we have, the more likely we are to stop this senseless slaughter.
