PARK STAFF ON HOLIDAY, IGNORE BRUMBY WITH BROKEN LEG

It has been reported bushwalkers appear to have frightened a Brumby to run through a rabbit warren. Several witness statements allege the bushwalkers were acting hostilely towards the heritage horses in the Tantangara Blue Water Hole area about the time the horse appeared with a broken leg.

Park staff involved with Brumby trapping, were approached about the horse’s plight quoting;

“they were off duty and on holiday and nothing would be done”.

NSW Snowy National Parks Boo-Boo Brumby Problem

On the 10th August 2009, SOS-NEWS received a letter from a person wishing to be known as “Boo Boo” who had read one of our stories on the shooting of Brumbies at Thredbo with high powered rifles.  Deciding to become a whistle blower quoted, “I am in a vulnerable position to retaliatory action from NSW National Parks” and request to be anonymous in any publications”.

Our investigators have confirmed important information contained in “Boo Boo’s” first letter and all subsequent letters along with several other whistle blowers information compiled in our extensive database.

Current Model (BAR's)

Current Model (BAR’s)

From “Boo Boos” letters we followed up one interesting item with a freedom of information disclosure that a  now retired manager of the lower snowy National Parks, held a “Commissioners Permit”(NSW Police Commissioner) for multiple 7.65mm NATO caliber Browning Automatic military assault rifles (BAR), and in the balance of probabilities the licensed transferred to another NP public servant.

The question here;

“why the hell National Parks would need fully automatic military assault rifles when farmers effectively use bolt action .223 rifles for shooting feral wild dogs, goats & pigs plus euthanaising large livestock like horses & cattle”?

 A few Hypotheticals for 2009 and prior to ponder.

If we were to suggest hypothetically;

Two old brumbies that lived on the lower slopes of Mt Janungal for many years in the 90’s and were accustom to hikers and fishermen seeking out campers who had the pleasure of their company were executed.

Two Kosciusko National Park staffers acting under management instructions to shoot these two tame brumbies near Mt Janungal that also involved an RSPCA person.

That this was not for humane purposes but for NSW National Parks opening of the rebuilt O’Keefe’s Hut to tourist.

That the presence of tame friendly wild horses and no sign of horse damaging the environment did not suit that area National Parks management personal agenda along with the Greenies agenda to have all our wild brumbies shot.

That careful timing of the shooting was just before winter limiting the chance of the shattered bodies being found before wild dogs, snow and time destroyed the evidence……... or did it?

Would you be upset?

If we were to suggest hypothetically;

That just outside the Kosciusko Marangle State Forest (with much having been handed over to National Parks) brumby wild horses were shot down in groups under a hail of heavy caliber automatic rifle fire.

Such weapons requiring police commissioner approval.

Would you be upset?

If we were to suggest hypothetically;

That horse riders appeared on a ridge in Kosciusko National Park while parks were aerial shooting training on goats and were driven off by the helicopter along with ground rangers who just happened to be there.

That reports received suggested loud automatic heavy gunfire was heard before the chase which took 4 hours costing many thousands of dollars, then the subsequent kangaroo court case and more dollars.

That wild horse numbers in that area were quietly reduced from weeks of this “Goat Shooting”.

Would you be upset?

 A once silenced and controlled public now seek clarity outside the media and government box of tricks.  Some we will furnish soon through Snowy Brumby Support Group ( www.snowybruymby.com ) as election time looms for politicians, as public servants cringe in fear of exposure.

ANZAC Centenary Minister Refuses Light Horse in Troop March

 

Australian Light Horseman & BrumbyAlbany Western Australia Anzac centenary commemoration troop march November 1st 2014 on York Street, will be without the Albany 10th Light Horse group to represent some 160,000 brumbies that left Albany in 1914 for the 15 Australian Light Horse regiments .

The Bunbury group wanted 15 riders and horses to represent the 15 Australian Light Horse regiments, wearing the specific colours on their shoulder and lance, and two other horses to represent the New Zealand contingents.

 

ronaldson mpThe bloke that sacked the Light Horse Group is none other than Canberra based Minister for Veteran Affairs and Assisting the Prime Minister for the Centenary of ANZAC, Michael Ronaldson (pictured wear the 100 years lapel badge for Anzac Centenary).

Lapel Badge

Quoted on his website, “He believes that the forthcoming Centenary of Anzac gives Australia an opportunity to ensure current and future generations understand the obligations a nation has to those who have served their nation, to veterans and their families now and into the future”.

Residing in Ballarat Victoria one of the major base camps for radical greenies in Australia, Mr Ronaldson MP attended school there, served on the local council, practiced as a Barrister and Solicitor and to survive in the green belt we may find Senator Ronaldson for political survival favouring the annihilation of our heritage horse the Brumby from the Australian landscape, hence this decision to stop the light horsemen riding to commemorate the 100 years when the Brumbies served Australia in 1914-18 as a major part of Anzac.

lighthorse-2
Senator Ronaldson’s Anzac Centenary message to the people of Australia concerning the Albany troop march is as follows;

A Department of Veterans’ Affairs spokesman defended the decision to not include the Light Horses in the march, saying the march was not a re-enactment.

“Large crowds are expected to be lining the route of the troop march, and as we are not assured of the horses’ and riders’ experience with crowds and their ability to handle those conditions, then we are not willing to accept the risk that this poses to the public,” he said.

“It is important to note the troop march is not a re-enactment, participants are serving Australian and international defence personnel, cadets and veterans only.

“Therefore there is no requirement for the 10th Light Horse to be involved.”

abbott-ronaldsonStandup and be counted Represent the Anzac’s as expected of government

Bunbury 10th Light Horse Troop president Harry Ball said he was disappointed no horses would be involved after the group put in a submission to be part of the march 18 months ago.

The Bunbury group wanted 15 riders and horses to represent the 15 Australian Light Horse regiments, wearing the specific colours on their shoulder and lance, and two other horses to represent the New Zealand contingents.

“We are voluntary, the horses are well-trained and we have insurance,” he said.

“We were told the concern was manure and that people would slip in it, but the Denmark Pony Club had offered to clean it up during the march.

If Minister Ronaldson is so worried about horseshit he can limit the spread by resigning before he takes more of it to Anzac Cove while bearing a hypocritical wreath, wearing a well rehearse solemn face, a person who has never seen military service that is reflected in his action for political survival.

9th light horse reinforcements
This is a picture of our history, our heritage where the brumbies carried our young men into battle and thousands died. Those that were left at the end of the war were ordered to shoot their horses for they could not bring them back to Australia.

Now we have the greens and government shooting what is left of the brumbies to cover mismanagement of public lands the wild horse can no longer cultivate as they did long before national parks were introduced on their land under false and misleading science with an agenda of genocide for the Australian Wild Horses now classified as destructive by pamphlet professors grasping tight to massive taxpayer grants for survival at any cost.

If a part of our Australian history can be stopped because of horse shit, then maybe our monarch should look at her own backyard under the same view she oversees in Australia.

household cavalry-2The horse poo from the Royal House Hold Cavalry has been collected as an essential ingredient for the compost in Kew Gardens London since 1791 for biodiversity.

While horses activities support 30000 species of plants, biodiversity kept at Kew gardens London, your Australian Government advisers make claims “Brumby kill biodiversity” in Australia!  Absolutely false science in the eyes of international experience.

Interesting how your Australian government are killing our national heritage brumbies for the same reason”.

Another 93 Brumbies Sent For Slaughter by NSW Government

Parks loading Brumbies – Note the yellow electric shock stick in right hand of man …

The Snowy People are disgusted with their staff that are meant to be acting in the best interests of their public land and national assets.

From the NSW Victorian ACT Federal Ministers down to field staff they have Brumby blood on their hands.

It appears the mighty dollar is geared to mindless big animal massacres and take their runs for water sales mark up the water price legacy of the environmental work Brumbies have done over decades.

Simpletons that live “battery hen” existences in their cement jungles paying little for a bounty of cheap clean sweet water are unaware of the environmental cost to that water.  Our water catchments are deadly for grazing animals be they native wildlife or multicultural Australians like Brumbies.  Australia’s freedom fighters tricked into entering trap yards laced by salt, molasses, rice straw in the depths of winter when the elite head off for their ski holidays and campaign for Brumby “removal.” Ethnic cleansing were environmentalists with strong non Australian accents are declaring themselves exempt.  They are part of multicultural Australia aren’t they?  But not the horses that preceded them?  Built the cities, towns roads, railways, dams, food and water supplies.

From the salt laced trap yards the terrified horses are bundled onto trailers and sent to slaughter because its is “efficient!” say the economic rationalists.  The Australian Brumby has been given its freedom to run in natural valleys providing tough sensible work horses.  The valleys grazed green, fire safe, bio-diverse are very attractive to national park land grabs.  The water, sweet and clean run off for sales at massive profits as the water does not need major or any treatment.

People calling themselves “environmental activists” live affluent lives in the cities expecting abundance of water, food no matter what the environmental or social cost, de-stocked, de-habited, locked up dingo infested land to inevitably incinerate in man made bushfire.

Water is drained off the once vibrant Brumby runs, once shared with wallaby, kangaroo, echidna, platypus, possum, lizards, frogs, fish, sea of wildflowers, birds of every colour and description.  Another 93 Brumbies join the killing chains and goes with them the lifeblood of the Snowy drained away through the grate of the slaughter house.

The various Governments are pretending to be in public consultation about Brumby management or the more degraded demeaning language of “feral exotic pest.” The hunt is on to muster goons to stand in front of a camera back dropped by the latest deciduous Australian forest common site in public land converted to national park wilderness city water catchment commercial tourist destination the incinerated bushfire killed forests.  The Snowy People are disgusted when Brumbies are shot for vegetation impact when mismanagement of their public land national heritage horses is there for the world to see.  Why not shoot the policy makers that have burnt our high country and butcher the Brumby.

In the last decade unstoppable bushfires have ravaged between Canberra and Melbourne.  Suburbs and towns leveled to burnt rubble.  Farms wildlife mass extinction events yet our Government staff persist with maniac haste to destroy the Brumby the last effective vegetation manager in our public land.  The last remaining pygmy possum, Mountain Plum Pine, Corroboree frogs, Alpine Spotted tree frogs, alpine skinks, broad tooth rat cling to the remaining effective, adequately stocked Brumby runs.  Brumby runs either did not burn or burnt at low intensity.  Defied so called effects of “climate change” when in fact massive unstoppable fires resulted from management change where big grazers were stripped away for short term unsustainable water sales profits at the expense of the ecology.

Blow in boffins and bureaucrats are setting about the extinction of not only the Brumby but the biodiversity that clings to the last of the big animal grazed green runs.  93 freedom and fire fighters, have been mindlessly sentenced to death by the economic rationalists that boast superior intellect just this last week.  Happy birthday horses.

Australia loves you 100 years on from when 160,000 horses were exported in 1914. What a commemoration, more bloodshed.

What of the public consultation process with the public when this quantity of horses are being executed?  Entire family groups exterminated mindlessly.  These horses selected for temperament, constitution, soundness for many thousands of years.  They fought loyally beside our soldiers for a free nation, humanity, democratic process.  In their darkest hour these are values they are being denied for “efficiency”

Vandalism terminates this co-evolution with humanity for thousands of years within seconds in individuals but entire family groups sent off to extermination.  Re-homing has largely been bypassed or resources over taxed by indecent haste and fanatical zeal to execute another ill conceived political orders issued coldly from afar.

Tony Keep Going – Look To The Top Of The Murray

UPPER MURRAY CATCHMENT & MURRAY BASIN REFORM

No high country forests, no Murray water inflows!

Prime Minister Tony Abbott

Alpine Ash forests across the Australian alps have been incinerated in this last decade by government adopted policy and poor advice from select boffins walking in the twilight zone among the rabid green fanaticism. More opinion than science or the wisdom of generational experience and proven performance.

People straight out of the city and university education by people straight off a boat from Europe have been very influential about how best to manage Australian forests and land. They have not understood the power of fire in the Australian ecology so have stuck their heads in the candle bark and spent lifetimes on public funding accepting policy failure reinforcing bad advice to government. Dynasties of denial are set to irreversibly destroy the Upper Murray inflows. Locked up forests repeatedly incinerated and or rendered dysfunctional to repeatedly burn under the same tyranny of mismanagement. The government inquiry after millions of hectares of alpine ecology have been killed once twice finally, bring in the same show ponies to judge their own bad advice.  Alpine ash forests and snow gum ecologies are either dead or on their way to being past regeneration because of hot fire injury.

head in the sand over fuel management 2

Will Tony go far enough?

While we applaud Tony Abbots recent turn around on the Murray reform process being critically endangered lower Murray, irrigators are being sold back water confiscated by the Craig Knowles circus which excised the alps upper Murray catchment. Will Tony go all the way? The lions share of inflow was excised deceitfully from the Murray basin reform process as the tops were declared protected when in fact they are chronically neglected! The alpine upper Murray catchment rendered critically endangered by stupidity of the ‘university ski club’ accumulating mountains of dead flammable mulch, maximal scrub locked up waiting for the inevitable drought summer dry storm to incinerate the soil, the birds and animals repeatedly incinerate the vegetation so it will be beyond regeneration.

Massacre fall out Lake Gregory

lake gregory 3On October 30th hundreds of Arabian Brumbies at Lake Gregory were shot from the air by a sniper, hired from the Dept. of Agriculture and using a helicopter paid for with tax payers money.

This ‘cull’ had been ordered by the Pastoral Lands Board, a section of the Dept of Rural Development and Lands in Western Australia, which delegates pastoral leases.

The lease of Lake Gregory Station is held by the Aboriginal Lands Trust, a section of the Department of Aboriginal Affairs.

A private pastoralist has asked to sub-lease Lake Gregory from the ALT to put cattle out for the live export trade.

Excuses touted by government for this ‘cull’ were that there were too many horses

Pastoral Lands Board, Rob Gillam said 9,000, Dept.Aboriginal Affairs said 5,620,

The Aboriginal Community members said up to 2,000.

Wild Horses Kimberley had 2 teams drive around the entire area twice and counted

up to a mere 500.

A second excuse by government was that horses were getting stuck in mud.

Wild Horses Kimberley asked the ALT 5 years ago to invest in equipment to create safe water points around the lake and get old bores running again; nothing happened.

Horses attempted to get water from a dam at Balgo because the troughs next to the dam hadn’t been filled by the residents.

A third excuse by government was that ‘overgrazing’ was occurring. They thought that horses were eating grasses that should have been available for cattle. But scientific proof shows that horses only eat the tops of grasses and cattle eat the lower areas. Cattle and horses can exist together.(Princeton University study-see WHK website). Government now plans to put thousands more cattle onto this area. This will cause massive environmental damage to the lake as cattle wallow in water and trample flora.

After the ‘cull’ horses were left dying. Dept. Agriculture estimated that about 1% did not die after the initial shot. This means that many horses suffered agonizing slow death in 40d heat.

RSPCA, which supported the aerial ‘cull’ has not found an excuse for this.

Reports from the lake say that

*dead horses have been left everywhere and are contaminating the area, including the water for the remaining horses, cattle, wildlife, birds and fish.

*requests for funds to get old bores working to provide fresh water have been ignored.

*requests to humanely manage horse numbers using infertility drug Pzp on mares and gelding, stallions, passive trapping for re-homing, have all been ignored.

The Lake Gregory horses are a valuable asset to the three Aboriginal Communities living at Lake Gregory. Introduced Arabians at Balgo by the Pallotine priest Father John McGuire have developed into strong bloodlines which the Sheik of Dubai, Mohamed bin Rashid al Maktoum sought out and managed to take 13 Lake Gregory horses to Dubai for endurance riding in 2007. Most of these horses live near Mulan where the people have grown up respecting and loving their horses. At the third community Mindibungu (Bililuna) the Percheron bloodlines were introduced along with Arabians to produce very big heavy strong horses, much valued by horsemen all over the world.

Wild Horses Kimberley will continue to save and protect the wild horses, raising funds to provide safe areas where they can be managed and allowed to run free to spread the indigenous seed, create fire breaks with their tracks, keep the grasses down to prevent fires.

Governments throughout the world must be educated to understand the ways of the wild horse and their benefit to our environment. Killing horses en masse must never be allowed to happen again.

Scientist Plan For Dingoes To Exterminate Our Brumbies

Green Academic Fiction WriterTaxpayer government grants to these cloned accademics have produced these findings from scientist expecting credability from a thinking Australian public now well aware of radical and ratbag green engineering to suit agenda on political dollars.

As our Brumby is classified ferral by greens and National Parks, while government and independant inquiries have established the Brumby as HERITAGE,  there is something very wrong in the parliaments of fools – Click [HERE] to read the reports –

From the Weekly Times:

SCIENTISTS believe dingoes can provide “a natural control” of feral brumbies in Victoria’s high country.

The research scientists advocate dingoes “as the only native predator capable of taking large exotic grazers”.

They admitted it was a radical solution which would cause controversy.

A spokeswoman for one brumby group called the dingo proposal “barbaric”.

The proposal by the Research Centre for Applied Alpine Ecology, formed from La Trobe University and the University of Melbourne, was among 84 public submissions made to a State Government inquiry into brumby control.

More than a third of the submissions favour aerial shooting to control the estimated 8200-10,100 wild horses in the alps. The Government has already ruled out shooting.

Parks Victoria is developing a contentious program to tackle the thousands of wild brumbies that many conservationists claim are damaging wilderness areas.

The Victorian Alps Wild Horse Management Plan is designed to guide the management of wild horses and their impact on public land.

Options being considered include the live removal of captured horses for donation to carers on private land, live removal of horses for sale at saleyards, and the euthanasia of captured horses.

Public submissions, together with advice from a roundtable group, a public perception survey, interviews with key interest groups and advice from a technical reference group are being considered as the draft plan is developed.

A draft management plan will be released for public debate later this year with the final strategy to be completed early next year.

Submissions from many organisations, including the RSPCA, Bushwalking Victoria, Gippsland Environment Group, Invasive Species Council and the Victorian National Parks Association, said aerial culling was preferable to chasing, roping and transporting the horses long distances which would cause unnecessary stress.

The research centre said dingoes would not solve all the brumby problems.

“The dingo should be seen as a legitimate key species of the alpine environment providing a long-term, natural control of feral horses,” the centre’s submission said.

Dingo Day-Candle Night Sparkles this Saturday

Dingoes Shine in Candle Light

Yep, this Saturday night the 11th of December, 3000 Candles will burn inside a paper bag in the shape of a Fraser Island dingo and your child’s name for a mere $2.00 per candle could be on one of those bags. This event was postponed last Sunday due to wild inclement weather predicted, but this Saturday at Dayman Park, Hervey on the Fraser Coast of Queensland, Dingo Day/ Candle Night will sparkle.

This added time enhances your opportunity to not just be involved from a distance in this fantastic piece of International grand scale Candle Art by renown artist Jorge Pujol, but enables you to give a memory to your child for life. Instilling them with the pride of doing something personal for the Fraser Island Dingo; by supporting the Fraser Island Dingo Whisperer Jennifer Parkhurst and helping her to meet her un-Australian legal penalisation for being our very own Australian Jane Goodall.

Dingo Day Brings Rain – Postponed Notice

Dingoes Postpone Candles & Howl in the Rain

As the rains fall and the drought gets truly broken in many places on the eastern side of Oz, those pending predicted torrential rains are expected to have a dramatic effect upon the lighting of a 3,000 Candle Art display of a Dingo by artist Jorge Pujol in Hervey Bay, Queensland on this Sunday.

It therefore has become necessary for this event to be postponed for most obvious reasons, and although this is a blow to the hard workers of Save the Fraser Island Dingo Inc and many others who have labored tirelessly to see this event succeed, the necessity to do so has overcome the desire to continue.

God didn’t see fit to rain the Dingo Candle Art out, he saw how important and how popular it was and how serious the need to show case the Fraser Island Dingo, so he delivered the nation life sustaining rains whilst giving more time to bring the Candle Art event to the world’s knowledge.

If you missed the opportunity to have your child, children, or grand-children sponsor a candle in the event, this postponement will now give you a second chance. [click here] With the desire and drive to hold this event before Christmas Day, the closer to it the weather takes them, the more it becomes a true Xmas gift to the Dingoes of Fraser Island and a Real Xmas blessing for Australia’s Dingo Whisperer, Jennifer Parkhurst.
