Petition: Australia is Slaughtering Thousands of Wild Horses, Goats, Deer, and Pigs Starting This Month

Petition: Australia is Slaughtering Thousands of Wild Horses, Goats, Deer, and Pigs Starting This Month

  • 1.2K

It was announced just three weeks ago that the Bureau of Land Management in the United States will remove 30,000 wild horses and burros from federal lands via cruel mass roundups.

They’ll also perform dangerous and inhumane sterilization procedures on mares.Mountain goats in national parks have also been culled recently.

Unfortunately, it turns out that a similar situation is taking place in —thousands of wild horses and other animals like goats, deer, and pigs will be slaughtered starting this month.

Daily Mail reports: “Around 4000 wild brumbies [horses] will be killed or rehomed while pigs, goats and deer will be shot from helicopters.”

The NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service announced: “An aerial program, targeting feral pigs, goats and deer has begun across the NPWS estate. Between 1700 and 2000 hours of shooting will be conducted in the first 12 months.

This represents a five-fold increase in aerial shooting effort. Horse removal will start in June 2020 and continue throughout the year. The priority is to rehome horses. Those horses that cannot be rehomed will be euthanised in trap yards, or sent to a knackery.”

The goal is to help native wildlife recover after the bushfires. The same summer bushfires that decimated Australia’s wildlife and now they want to kill more animals. A humane alternative should be found!

If you agree and want to save wild animals from ,sign this petition calling on David Littleproud MP, Australian Minister for Agriculture, Drought and Emergency Management; and Sussan Ley MP, Australian Minister for the Environment; to do whatever it takes to ensure a humane method of controlling the population of wild horses is used.

Sorry, but as a wildlife refuge manager for eleven years, I understand the necessity of removing non-native, invasive species.Unfortunately, this often involves killing many animals, something no one likes but if native wildlife is to survive, the non-natives have to be removed.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but they shouldn’t even be there… So they (humans) made a great mistake by introducing them, which they now “correct”. Sure it’s sad that these animals have to die, but the native wildlife will benefit from this.
And what kind of action would be better than a clean (deadly) shot from a distance? They don’t see it coming, they have no clue what happens until it’s too late. For me that is better than gathering them together and kill them in an enclosure.
