LEST WE FORGET
An e-mail containing no text was received from Rob Gibbs, Ranger Kosciuszko National Park, Wild Horse Management Plan Review Project, which sums up this persons public relation communication skill.
Attached was the latest info from the loaded dice Green fraternity ruling the so called independent Kosciuszko National Park Wild Horse Management Plan.
It reminds one of a CON-vened “Royal Commission” – only when the right commissioner is selected with terms of reference set to establish the required findings that suit the hidden agenda.
Remember: “If you play by their rules – YOU LOSE”
Ginini peats estimated 3200+ years old cared for by committed Aboriginal cool fire, dingo suppression, multicultural stockmen restoring big animal activity continued cool fire care with their little Brumby mobs, passing sheep and cattle, safe in 1939 heat wave fires, Cotter travelling stock stopped 1969 Snow Leases stopped also at this time to build soil cons mountains of mulch, 100% ground cover of rank tussock 10+ tonnes per hectare flammable toxic dead gum litter to bury wildflowers value adding those placed in the museum. Build the bonfire with scrub, industrial strength gadget fire suppression for the pyronoid ripping off the water bounty, legacy of Brumby and bushmen’s toil.
Without trial or jury, unarmed Brumby massacred finally 1987 for ‘pig roots,’ RAMSAR declared 45th 1996, burnt, under cut 2003, first time in living memory left vulnerable abandoned by wilderness fanatics. A grand hoax. Canberra plunged into water crisis and restrictions first time ever. ACT foresters, bushmen made redundant 2001 taking with them 500 years of local knowledge on summer storm behaviour. Stoked for decades, watched by the world via satellite, the 2003 inferno incinerated 160000 hectares in 4 hours world record intensity blowing in to suburbs 500+ homes burnt 4 people, caged dogs, cats, wallaby, koala, millions of birds, lizards, insects, frogs, fish, possum. Pooles and Pryors exotic arboretum punished for obstruction. The Ginini Brumby had gone. Ginini flats are haunted by their murder. Dead ghost gums moan and grieve their loss in the wind.
Next door the Brumby, travelling cattle grazed green the Upper Murrumbidgee was fire safe 200000 hectares. Now Canberra’s new water source to burn one dry summer when the bonfire rebuilds the mountains of mulch. Pay back for defying climate changing fires in 2003, boffins now want to protect their “anti graze anti burn science” in dingo infested forests, demand ‘Bidgee Brumbies exterminated. Value add more endangered species captive breeding programs. Public funded for policy failure. Fly in fly out frogs not yet eaten by their dogs. Canberra water costs more slaughter for their bath water. High society drink bottled water Brumby fire fighters die for naught after they are caught. Deceived by gifts of salt delivered by more betrayal.
Brumbies have been welcome to roam freely across the high country for up to 190 years achieving much appreciated ecoservices while producing work horses as required. In 1987 the horses were shot to rot by sniper fire, their bodies dumped in NSW, it was claimed for ‘pig roots’ or diggings their crime, as the politically corrected term goes tampering with the Australian vernacular goes with theft of land and as cultural heritage seems to go. While Snowy stockmen were away at war for the second time (1914-18) then (1939-45) the people calling themselves environmentalists made their run to confiscate the mountains build their careers at the ski resorts on the basis of “potential threats” and unsubstantiated conjecture they called “science” or precautionary principle.
Canberra like Sydney was sited because of the high quality water available. Clean sweet, running off snowy mountains and summer thunderstorms. Lightly carbon filtered and alpine herb infused. Honed by large herds of visiting big native animals for millions of years, then Aboriginal cool proactive fire mimicked the big animals to retain the ideal fire safe vegetation, the Aboriginal suppression of the introduced dingo aggressively exterminating the mainland tiger, devil and now the quoll among other wildlife species abandoned to massive packs of these dangerous and savage killers chomping through the regions grazing animals to appease the ‘wilderness worshipers’ and water engineers of maximal water sale profits at the cost of the ecology. The stockmen black, white and brindle restored the big animals, cool burnt, removed the dogs restored adequate mixed species grazing to produce the worlds finest water rain, snow, run off and seepage. The cool fires are no longer possible in big animal prepared vegetation ideally spaced to cool the fires any weather.
All that is left at Ginini flats is the ghosts of the Brumby mobs that tended the area. Haunted among the fire killed snow gums or as some say, ghost gums too. Fire killed trees and animals vaporised by the millions. There are no leaves on the trees, birds to sing, the wind howls a mournful farewell to what once was. Bountiful, wildflowers of every colour and shape waving a welcome to all who came, are fond memories of the old folk dismissed as uneducated by blow in boffins that have never witnessed such a scene or are told it ever existed. They have been ‘weaned on wilderness’ lifeless solitude for those fleeing the dysfunctional artificial city they know of nothing truthful.
Once there were insects, frogs, birds, lizards, broad tooth rats by the many, possum, gliders, wallaby, wombat, kangaroo with joey in the pouch, echidna in the knowledge their pups were safe rolled in leaf nests dreaming of mum’s return. There is none in the streets, there is now none in the city water catchment once called ‘the bush’ politically corrected and disinfected, heat sterilised in fact to save a corporate zac or ‘quick quid’ on what boffins pay for bath water, now drinking water comes in plastic bottles and the Brumby die for naught. Senseless slaughter, for cheap city water.
The vista is very changed, rank tussock, dead trees over hanging an angry regrowth of few fire hardy species. The next holocaust manoeuvres into position to appease some science fiction commissioned to be complicit.
They want the mountains dead for their cheap city water, cheap alpine holidays. They want our heritage horses dead for defying the climate change mythology. Grazed green Brumby runs were fire safe under the challenge of industrial strength mountains of mulch set to burn the forests, the rivers, the soil, the possum, the frogs and fish, the birds and insects. Gone for what? ‘Grazed green’ lawns around the pretty peoples palaces where they produce the propaganda.
The ghost gums are haunted with our Brumbies blood. Mad men want the mountains all dead so they may have water to their multimillion dollar mansions. The Brumby Ghosts of Ginni know the truth. Why the bogs were burnt as never before possible. Who did deliberately build the bonfire empire to save a zac on water from your tap.
They confiscated the high country made promises they would look after it better than the bushmen that took their horses to defend king and country. Those bushwalkers that couldn’t ride or communicate with good horse’s honesty, stayed at home were committed to conserving their careers. Built bonfire empires.
They want the mountains all dead. Send our Brumbies to slaughter for their cheap city water. Breed more killer dogs on Brumby bones. Is this the Australia our Snowy stockmen fought for all those years ago with their tireless Brumbies with them all the way. ‘Bill the Bastard,’ Ned and Nell pounding their way through hell. The sniper fire has not finished or the blood lust of mad men yet diminished.
Ginini, headwaters of Canberra water, is haunted ever after by Brumby ghosts, injustice and needless slaughter. Out of every tap in town now flows ‘Bidgee Brumby blood. Where to next Canberra, when you burn these dead Brumby runs? ‘Climate change’ indeed you deceitful bloody rogues.
“These sites had been taken out of grazing almost as soon as the Kosciuszko legislation was passed, so they were already protected from the main disturbing agent. But I found that in the few years since I first saw them the amount of degradation had increased incredibly!”
Maybe check on the assumptions eh!
Look elsewhere for the real ‘disturbed agent.’

It has been reported bushwalkers appear to have frightened a Brumby to run through a rabbit warren. Several witness statements allege the bushwalkers were acting hostilely towards the heritage horses in the Tantangara Blue Water Hole area about the time the horse appeared with a broken leg.
Park staff involved with Brumby trapping, were approached about the horse’s plight quoting;

Brumby supporters across the world again condemn the Colong Foundation for Wilderness CEO Keith Muir for his latest incitement of violence towards our heritage horses in response to the recent undertakings of the NSW Environment Minister, Rob Stokes “there will be no aerial culling.” .
Prior Muir condoned and was a major player engineering the 2000 disgusting inhumane slaughter of our Brumbies in Guy Fawkes National Park quoted, “Shooting the horses is the only way”. ( see the video HERE )
NEVER… NEVER… accept a politician making promises leading into an election (March 2015) will be set in concrete, you will find those promises to be set in bullshit.
The NSW Government and Minister Stokes will have the support of the Brumby preservation groups when the undertaking is in legislation for should they cross the line on polling day then another line may appear through the deal proposed and the execution of our brumbies will continue. Contact the Minister – (02) 9999 3599 – firstname.lastname@example.org
Member for Monaro, John Barilaro, denied the move was an attempt to shore up votes for next year’s state election.
He said the community was against aerial culling and it should be ruled out.
“I believe it’s skewing the conversation in relation to what we need to do when looking at horse management and techniques and maybe new techniques in how we can manage these numbers,” Mr Barilaro said.
“So no, it’s not an election issue.”

Brumby supporters for the fire mitigation and biodiversity enhancement contributed by Brumbies in the public land called national park, Canberra’s new water supply since the Cotter basin was incinerated 2003 by too much fuel including the areas Ginini bogs once fire safe Brumby strong holds until the 1987 massacre of the Brumbies in the ACT.
What was Colong’s involvement in the Guy Fawkes brutality after the 2000 Olympics went International celebrating our stockmen and their loyal horses at the opening ceremony?
It is very sad when media in Australia resort to interviewing Muir who is clearly out of his depth when his fiction is challenged.
“KNP is not some rustic 19th century horse ranch in the dreamtime.”
“Iconic bush heritage of the alps will in fact be ruined if feral horses numbers continue to grow.” – based on what expertise Mr Muir certainly not yours?
“Aerial culling is essential to contain the numbers…”
“These damned nags are not in anyway rare or unique…”
“The NSW government appears on a course to wreck biodiversity in this state with plans to repeal the Native Vegetation Act allowing logging and grazing” (in land taken) in parks and reserves.”
Quotes of Muir Tumut and Adelong Times 23.12.14 –
Read Muir,s story at the Colong site – http://www.colongwilderness.org.au/media-releases/2014/12/partisan-politics-killing-kosciuszko-national-park
Mr Muir seems unable to handle factual findings that dismiss his public funded fiction engineered drivel he has been peddling for decades as a certified cretin.
Most Australian’s would like an aerial cull of Muir and his cronies with a one way air ticket back to the British Raj in India from whence he came. We do not need him nor want him in Australia and if he was kicked by a horse as a child then there is more evidence horses are a good judge of character.
If Muir is so concerned about NSW’s biodiversity can he rationalise Colong’s stance on harbouring packs of mongrel dingo and hybrids to exterminate wildlife back up for no graze policies in public land. These killers are all through Asia and India where they have all but killed off local wildlife there.
Can Muir also comment on Colong’s stance obstructing known means of beneficial fuel hazard reduction, tried and proven effective for generations of land managers using big animal mixed species grazing and selective forest thinning where saw logs and livestock drought relief grazing are cost recovery conservation.
While Muir has concerns about saving public money how can he rationalise the subsidised tourism industry dealing in imported plastic tents, maps, etc. Camping among the incinerated sticks Canberra suburbs to Melbourne suburbs (Alpine fire 2002 – 09) where about 200 people died during the events and trauma following. 400-500 were injured smoke inhalation and burns, vehicle accidents, 2450+ homes burnt down, farms domestic animals and the horrors of millions of wildlife gone with many remaining homeless years later.
Birds, insects, lizards, wildflowers, frogs, fish, mammals vaporised over an area excessive of the size of Scotland and Wales or many European nations.
Livelihoods gone for some political deal done with swinging governments buying votes with national and public assets greenmailed by persons not declaring the details of what was engineered. Have the press been frank open and unbiased. A number of ex journalists have entered politics, created national parks exclusive bushwalking destinations, built the bonfire for 50-90 years waiting for a dry summer. The nations forests water biodiversity gone in record climate changing mass extinction events.
In the meantime what can be said of the Brumby with the broken leg in Tantangara Blue waterhole? Next time a bushwalker gets lost, breaks a leg or neck, close the emergency services and hospitals down for holidays and weekends! Back off on the harassment of dogmen and leg hold traps anytime will do. Ignore the brutalisation of wildlife by dog packs dismissed as “natural” balance. Bushwalkers maiming themselves natural selection. Live by wilderness rules as they come to mind.
Colong has a long track record of publically vilifying horses, cattle, sheep, farm, fishing and forestry communities, inciting hatred among city people, political representatives and students. Manipulating the law of the land, gaining public finance to buy more bushwalking venues as the old ones become over grow then burnt.
Some naturalists are forced to run tours to other countries if they want to observe biodiversity now that Australia’s choice areas have been ruined by chronic neglect and negligence. Policy failure from Kakadu, Kimberley to Kosciuszko, once vibrant Brumby runs and biodiversity gone to the dogs since “salvation”.
Keith Muir receives his order of Australia for “services to nature conservation” in 2004 from the NSW Governor after unprecedented infernos swept through the alps 2003-9 after being chronically denied any form of natural fire, proactive fire, dingo control or grazing animals for many decades. Poo free smoke free vista.
Keith Muir and his following have their eyes shut on the loss of biodiversity from policy failure and abuse of national assets, forests, water supplies, fauna and flora, soil gurgled into water reservoirs costing billions of dollars in lost food production and opportunity. All for subsidised bushwalking venue. No smoke, no poo, no rates, no audits or accountability.
By Noeline Franklin B Sc (Hons), PTC, M Med Sc
Recent NSW Government & National Parks engineered consultation with the general public on Brumby management in Kosciuszko is another slick orchestrated sham among the gang green beneficiaries for the ideal life in the resorts, swilling wine, cheese boards, rack of lamb, roast beef, rice and fresh salad, fruit platters. Farmer’s product over which the conversation excludes the rural minority wishes and heritage is betrayed yet again.
The country people are forced to witness their forests avoidably burnt down, irrigation farmers bypassed for water being used to flush Canberra’s toilet out to the Murray River lower lakes with water called “environmental flows” designed for diluting the pollutants and salt. The meagre drippings off expanses of dead and dysfunctional vegetation on the incinerated Snowy Alps chronically neglected by incompetent, inactive, indecisive boffins and bureaucrats paid highly to deceitfully administer policy failure.
With trotters in the trough, water and hydro electricity deals are done in the smoky back rooms among the money men of politics taking off the people the catchment and water. If any water runs off the burnt killed forests, this diminished water supply may be sold back to a select and exclusive few Australians. Perhaps even corporatised up for grabs internationally.
The only inferno respite our rivers and biodiversity had during the last decades man made alpine fires was on the few grazed green Brumby runs defiant of so called climate change. The rest of the alps predictably were cremated by the bonfire built lovingly over decades which incinerated the forest, bogs and alpine plains as nature would never previously allow.
Industrial gadgetry such as aeroplanes helicopters fire trucks in the dehabited man made wilderness suppressed the cool fire smoke from ruining the commercial tourist vista. The legislative stupidity manipulating who can make smoke dreamed up on the seaside taking ownership of smoke production for the cities benefit being paramount over any cost long term to the environment which pays for being locked up to burn by being denied cool fire or grazing animal services for decades. No logs, firewood, no grass mown except around the resorts and tourist props for paying customers. ‘University ski club’ cronies made up of lawyers, journalists, water engineers, bushwalking bureaucrats boffins undertake drunken and wilderness weed assisted orgies designed to entertain the public land management policy makers for clarity of thought and ecological insight.
These same people are frightened by a Brumby stallion snort of disgust at intrusion and campers crappe on his grazing runs. For this defiance of ‘climate changing’ fires by grazing vegetation, Brumby are declared criminals by the ‘shape of their feet,’ production of Brumby buns so are sentenced to death by firing squad for defying ‘climate changing intense fire with their grazed green runs being made fire safe and water remaining surprisingly clean and sweet compared to incinerated destocked grazing runs reduced to eroding expanses of soot and sediment drifts, the vegetation fire deformed.
Pyronoid and poo-ranoid city raised people find Brumby buns confronting. They want them gone not knowing of their essential Eco-services provided or the heritage connections for many people. The “textperts” hunt globally on public funding looking for ‘alternative energies’ as they sit by allowing hard hoof hating fanatics butcher mercilessly the nations working horses, donkey, camel, water buffalo who turn out natural Eco-services. Aggressively these “Pamphlet Professors” lay claim to big animal biodiversity produced lawns for their tourist empire as they sanction to destroy the very mechanism that pumped life into their commercialised “tourist ecology.”
Commissioned science research junket on the public payroll massaged through government vested interests to legitimise their mismanagement as judged by its outcomes of degradation symptomatic of species loss, big fire destruction, culture of exclusion for the financial groupie elite.
More man made fires, mass extinction events, ever growing the ‘species obituary list,’ water shortages, dead forests fire killed as far as the eye can see, Canberra, Melbourne, Upper Murray catchment, rendered dysfunctional with all other native forests being prepared bonfires waiting for the correct circumstance of drought and extreme weather to explode gushing fire ember showers.
Snow gum down to river red gum all set to burn to cinders so high society can live the life of the affluent maintaining transport and energy inefficiencies while the forests are denied essential grazing, logging or cool fire control for fear of competing carbon emissions or smoke to mar the commercial wilderness tourist vista.
Rural and historic knowledge of avoiding catastrophe has been kept out of the Ministers office by ‘controlled minders’ ably assisted by a very greedy and deceitful media misinforming the Australian public. Scientists that see this alternative view, have data sets to support their conclusions and have a conscience vote are sidelined in funding for their research if not personally vilified, bullied, harassed forced away from their work. This is how consensus has been manufactured through the complicit academic dynasty.
With no opposing evidence supporting Brumbies that are in fact more beneficial in their activities than detrimental, this evidence continues to be suppressed and denied collection, denied media attention who have investments in resorts, plantation forests, and the public façade to have equal consultation from independent consultants apart from ex-staff of soil con, national park or tea room wallflower researchers frequenting the canteen for conversations to maintain the empire, then our heritage wild horses will be made extinct without representation. Another kangaroo court arranged by groupies for groupies.
The lack of snow and rainfall directly contributed to incinerated dead forests or dense monoculture regrowth blissfully setting the next inferno in place by doing nothing and obstructing others capable doing anything to prevent another mass extinction process from occurring is a national disgrace.
Without doubt Australian rural minorities are the multicultural families and communities with the most experience capable in dealing with land and water management putting a protective shell over the nation’s environmental assets against the colonial exploited forces extracting city water at the environments cost, cutting down cedar forests for export, taking and eating all beach life, ripping up fire tracks that are no longer accessible, mining all our coal and minerals exported with indecent haste at a pittance return, denied value adding by future generations.
Rural communities historic evidence show they have been into renewable agricultural production among the native wildlife, leaving patches of bush, working their herds and flocks along the stock routes in a manner biodiversity benefits until the experts arrived from universities adopting the American antisocial environmentalist view where humans can do nothing for the environment but visit, pay gate fees, the motel, the eatery, and take photos in this ecological artifact wilderness they have created from myth-information.
Now we see our once pristine heritage locked up and denied Eco-services of cool fire to mar the vista with smoke, manage big animal grazing, selectively thin the forest such it regenerates and stays fire safe.
Universities are paid for research in such a away that what was called ‘science’ is now an orchestrated artifact only designed to support the popular and politically correct profitable view, not much to do with what the environment wants or needs in reality, to be sustainable.
What happens in the thing created by bushwalking clubs from the city is all about “little me.” The cheap water to sell, the city carbon off set, the low cost public land maximal profit no expenditure on doing nothing management sucking off the legacy of past management until it is extinguished, elitism exclusion, behind the locked gates and uniformed enforcer controllers policing your wilderness experience. Observing the progress of chaos and anarchy, vegetation over growth, the fear of another out of control inferno to bring about more wildlife extinction, establish more weed introductions under the noses of the indolent, rabbits feeding, packs of killer dogs, foxes, cats, pigs to help each other destroy more native plant and animal species. Orchid corms, lizards, frogs insects, wildlife butchered, starved and burnt in unsustainable numbers beyond capacity to regenerate and persist through the imposts of adversity.
The camping areas and visitor centres are peppered with wildlife rescues salvaged for tourist props from ‘road kill’ to give false impressions all is well in National Parks but a quick tour beyond this Hollywood production and facade reveals the backdrop of vast canopy burn and desolation of a once thriving attractive public land.
By their own admission the anti-grazing lobby observed but did not acknowledge the only inferno safe areas were the grazed green Brumby runs, the still active cattlemen’s runs.
Alpine bogs chronically denied big animal activity or cool fire, burnt as never before possible in Soil Cons mountains of mulch lovingly accumulated for decades of indolence partying at the ski resorts on the public expense with the long term cost on your environment. Brumby pugs propagate frogs.
When Brumby are exterminated the frogs who enjoy their pugs (foot print holes to live and breed in) will slowly die out from unviable habitat they now install man made plastic pugs to simulate the Brumby pug not to mention the failing controlled breeding workshop program that fly frogs to these plastic pugs which are nothing short of a frog starving death camp.
On the 10th August 2009, SOS-NEWS received a letter from a person wishing to be known as “Boo Boo” who had read one of our stories on the shooting of Brumbies at Thredbo with high powered rifles. Deciding to become a whistle blower quoted, “I am in a vulnerable position to retaliatory action from NSW National Parks” and request to be anonymous in any publications”.
Our investigators have confirmed important information contained in “Boo Boo’s” first letter and all subsequent letters along with several other whistle blowers information compiled in our extensive database.
From “Boo Boos” letters we followed up one interesting item with a freedom of information disclosure that a now retired manager of the lower snowy National Parks, held a “Commissioners Permit”(NSW Police Commissioner) for multiple 7.65mm NATO caliber Browning Automatic military assault rifles (BAR), and in the balance of probabilities the licensed transferred to another NP public servant.
The question here;
“why the hell National Parks would need fully automatic military assault rifles when farmers effectively use bolt action .223 rifles for shooting feral wild dogs, goats & pigs plus euthanaising large livestock like horses & cattle”?
If we were to suggest hypothetically;
Two old brumbies that lived on the lower slopes of Mt Janungal for many years in the 90’s and were accustom to hikers and fishermen seeking out campers who had the pleasure of their company were executed.
Two Kosciusko National Park staffers acting under management instructions to shoot these two tame brumbies near Mt Janungal that also involved an RSPCA person.
That this was not for humane purposes but for NSW National Parks opening of the rebuilt O’Keefe’s Hut to tourist.
That the presence of tame friendly wild horses and no sign of horse damaging the environment did not suit that area National Parks management personal agenda along with the Greenies agenda to have all our wild brumbies shot.
That careful timing of the shooting was just before winter limiting the chance of the shattered bodies being found before wild dogs, snow and time destroyed the evidence……... or did it?
Would you be upset?
If we were to suggest hypothetically;
That just outside the Kosciusko Marangle State Forest (with much having been handed over to National Parks) brumby wild horses were shot down in groups under a hail of heavy caliber automatic rifle fire.
Such weapons requiring police commissioner approval.
Would you be upset?
If we were to suggest hypothetically;
That horse riders appeared on a ridge in Kosciusko National Park while parks were aerial shooting training on goats and were driven off by the helicopter along with ground rangers who just happened to be there.
That reports received suggested loud automatic heavy gunfire was heard before the chase which took 4 hours costing many thousands of dollars, then the subsequent kangaroo court case and more dollars.
That wild horse numbers in that area were quietly reduced from weeks of this “Goat Shooting”.
Would you be upset?
A once silenced and controlled public now seek clarity outside the media and government box of tricks, there is more to come.
