PETITION TARGET: The Hon Lily D’Ambrosio, Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change

Dozens of innocent brumby horses are set to be shot and killed at Australia’s alpine national parks in a brutal culling planned by the Australian Government.

Part of the Feral Horse Strategic Action Plan, the new “kill policy” allows for nearly 100 free-roaming wild horses to be slaughtered in Bogong High Plains.

Cattleman Philip Maguire recently went to court in an effort to stop this inhumane act, accusing Parks Victoria of not engaging with the community about changes to the draft action plan to include the ground shooting of these beautiful equines.

The Victoria supreme court dismissed the case, and now, the barbaric horse slaying can move forward.

Murdering defenseless horses is not a proper way to control their population. Non-violent alternatives are available. We must speak out to save these animals and stop this repulsive cull from taking place.

Sign this petition urging The Hon Lily D’Ambrosio for the Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change to call off the cull, prevent the senseless killing of Australian brumbies, and work to find a reasonable, cruelty-free alternative.
