Australian governments are removing all Brumbies from National parks by several methods; the cruelest method is aerial slaughter. The frightened horses running for their lives, are shot from helicopters, leaving the carcasses in place where they fall.
Animals wander around for days till dropping dead. Babies die of thirst after their mother is killed. Little ones break legs trying to run with the herd. In Kosciusko they are sending them by truck 600 kms to slaughter babies and pregnant mares. The horses are hurt and scared then they face another grueling task of the sale yards, without the Australian public as a whole being aware. In April 2011 300 + Brumbies are to be aerial culled in Carnarvon National Park Queensland.

HOOFS2010 Inc, WARNING SOME GRAPHIC IMAGES. Every year our wild Brumbies are forced to suffer and shown little to no mercy, although this video is very sad it shows the true emotion of what is really happening.

Slaughtering horses for human consumption, or any other reason, is TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE and we need to stand up all together against this atrocious practice before anymore horses are killed. Horses are exceptional creatures. The horse’s senses are generally SUPERIOR to those of a human. Studies have assessed equine intelligence in the realms of problem solving, learning speed, and knowledge retention. Results show that horses excel at simple learning, but also are able to solve advanced cognitive challenges that involve categorization and concept learning. Horses are prey animals with a strong fight-or-flight instinct. Their first response to threat is to startle and usually flee, although they will stand their ground and defend themselves when flight is not possible, or if their young are threatened. They also tend to be curious; when startled, they will often hesitate an instant to ascertain the cause of their fright, and may not always flee from something that they perceive as non-threatening.
