The 2021 Kosciuszko Wild Horse Management Plan proposes to kill thousands of horses through a combination of ground shooting, transporting them to knackeries to slaughter them, and other cruel methods.
This is unacceptable. A wild horse has the same capacity to feel pain and fear as a native animal, and their lives deserve the same level of dignity and respect. We need to find a way to protect the native animals at risk, AND the horses – in fact, we have a duty to do so.
Sign the petition to call on the NSW Environment Minister to reject the 2021 Kosciuszko Wild Horse Management Plan to shoot horses and send them to knackeries, and instead provide additional funding for brumby rehoming and support the use of fertility control in sensitive areas of Kosciuszko National Park.
