NSW’s brumby bill reckless, cruel and unachievable

New South Wales’ proposed brumby legislation – which abandons plans to cull feral horses in Kosciuszko National Park – is a dangerously reckless policy that will escalate environmental impacts, increase costs of feral horse management, and put horses at risk of extreme suffering, according to members of the Ecological Society of Australia.

The bill before the NSW parliament to ‘recognise the heritage value of sustainable wild horse populations within parts of Kosciuszko National Park’ has an aim that is unachievable, according to Dr Dick Williams, Adjunct Professorial Fellow at Charles Darwin University.

Dr Williams and members of the Ecological Society of Australia have written an open letter criticising the bill.
