Melanie,the way you describe it,it sounds like it is a virtual free for all on most wild animals in Australia.Shooting from helicopters etc..
Here in Canada there are very few wild horses left,only in some parts.
Horses are destructive?
In what way,they don't eat the native critters,surely there most be room in your vast beautiful country for wild horses
I suppose almost everyone has a gun...at least outside the cities,which they probably do here in Canada to.
I once watched culling of roos,not knowing what they were going to do and I quickly changed channel when they started killing them...it was sad...
