7’000 Brumbies Slaughtered Many Left To Die

Kimberley Culling Victims are a National Disgrace

Kimberley Culling Victims are a National Disgrace

gunshipOctober 2013 at the Western Australian East Kimberley’s around Lake Gregory became a killing field for over 7,000 brumbies, executed from mustering helicopters conducting an aerial cull with shooters using military SLR rifles, leaving mortally and seriously wounded horses across the landscape, all sanctioned by the RSPCA saying “they demanded the brumbies be killed instantly through an accurately-fired shot, through the head or thorax”.

No question a culling was required, with many options available and proven humane which aerial shooting is not one of them.

So we ask this question, why the traditional owners of the land and all the brumbies, were not consulted by the lessees, the WA Ministers involved, and the RSPCA over this disgraceful inhumane execution of their heritage horses?

    I will never have anything to do with RSPCA because of their decision to back aerial culling. I have written and expressed my feelings –

      Frankly I feel you are part of an army who have come to realise that the RSPCA management and Inspectorate do not represent the wonderful work of the volunteers and the mainstream members and it is about time the RSPCA Boardroom was made accountable to the donating public that seems to be dwindling fast.

    There has been a few issues over this side on the south coast where the RSPCA has said they are addressing some cruelty issues of domestic horses. while doing their investigating, which is taking months, and sometimes years, the horses are not seized, nor fed or rehomed. IT JUST GOES ON!! I have lost all faith. FYI (I know they are not brumbies), but for what it is worth… Face book – The Kim Hollingsworth Horses and Save the Penderlea Horses. Cheers
