Recently, the Australian Brumby Alliance (ABA) lost a long-running Federal Court case against Parks Victoria. The ABA had objected to plans to cull feral horses in the Victorian Alps. Parks Victoria will now begin culling horses in the alps, where horse numbers have soared over the past five years. The biggest herds of wild horses are in NSW’s Kosciuszko National Park. However, due to NSW Nationals leader John Barilaro, wild horses enjoy heritage protection in that state, and they continually move across the border into Victoria and boost numbers there.
What has happened since then?
