Save 5000 wild Kimberley (Aust) horses being trucked 3000k to slaughter - The Petition Site
Please read - important information at end -
The government of West Australia has ordered the indigineous lease holders at Lake Gregory in the remote Kimberley region of West Australia to remove 5000 wild horses who have lived in the area for decades.
Starting as soon as next week the horses, including mares in foal, will be rounded up, crammed into trucks, and sent 3000 kilometers across central Australia to South Australia for slaughter and the meat exported overseas for human consumption.
The government states the horses are causing environmental damage, and yet have not put into place any population control and are happy to leave the 5000 cattle, who also graze this huge tract of land ,in place.
A local group is willing to work to manage the population by trap, neuter and release and use of fertility drugs - a humane, long term solution.
NOTE: WA Government requires name and address for each petition signer. Therefore anonymous signatures will not 'count' It does not have to be a full address- street, town would be great - country is automatically added. Also read 'thank you' e-mail for where to send e-mail of protest - or go direct to
we really need these - they count more than a petition signature. THANK YOU
