'It looks like a horse cemetery': Starving brumbies shot dead by authorities
in Victoria's Barmah National Park
Some are shooting the starving horses to keep
them from dying a long painful death.
Other are attempting to save the starving horses.
One way is helping nature balance an over population of horses.
The other way is ignoring nature and making future problems worse and

science and sound range management by knowledgeable people.
Climate change in the west and fast-growing
free-roaming horse herds are creating real problems for the range they run
on. The range is suffering
and the horses are suffering as well
as other wildlife. We need to
remove the horses to preserve the range and stop the suffering.

Nature’s way to control the population of
wildlife is to let them die of starvation and thirst.
If you don’t want the horses to die from lack

By feeding and watering the wildlife you are creating higher levels
of overpopulation that will show you what real overgrazing looks like.
Our rangelands will pay the price.
