THERE are possibly 400,000 Australia-wide, roaming deserts and high country. To conservationists, they are pests, fouling waterholes, destroying native plants, spreading weeds and taking food from indigenous animals.

Protect your Brumbies. Cattlemen here in the US want to be rid of our Mustang. Protect these beautiful creatures with everything you have.

No, unfortunatately Roopa, the brumbies are regarded as pests by many australians, and are actually slaughtered in a annual killings which are keep secret from the public.

the brumbies should be allowed to have their natural wild habitats , & with proper undersrtanding they can bring water & enhance the plants & grasses , i.e. more water & plants will naturally always grow back soon every time , if the horses are accepted & understood for their true worth.
the people causing the dry land & droughts , because they want to take everything away from the animals. it is terrible for a fee animal to suffer this murder etc.
