Mass Monday Night Shooting Planned for Victoria’s 25,000 Alpine Heritage Brumbies

Imagine this. It’s late at night, and in the cool dark, a herd of horses – pregnant mares, yearlings from last year’s foals, old horses, young horses, and the herd’s stallions with the bachelor herds nearby, are quietly grazing. Suddenly, a shot rings out, and a mare goes down, the herd panics at the sound and begins to run – not knowing they are surrounded by ground shooters using thermal imaging and noise suppressors to pinpoint where their targets are.

Was the mare killed with one shot? No-one will know until daybreak, but both she and the foal she is carrying, will die this night, as will every horse in the herd in this particular area of the Bogong High Plains and the Eastern Victorian Alps. Not every death will be quick and none of them will be painless. Not one of the deaths is necessary.    READ THE REST OF THIS ARTICLE HERE.
