Dear Mr. Jeff Floyd,

The Australian Brumby Alliance (ABA) is extremely concerned to hear that the planned rehoming of 100-120 Brumby “removals” from Barmah National Park in this financial year will not go ahead. Instead, with rehomers already waiting to collectand offer the highly valued 100-120 sentient, heritage Barmah Brumbies the chance of a new life, we hear that they are to be shot.

This unjustifiable loss of life is unacceptable, not only does this action not meet community expectations and standards, it also contradicts the evidence provided in the Management Plans as to the reasons why rehoming is the preferred option.
