Her­itage list­ing to save wild brumbies from cull

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - HARRY & MEGHAN - LINDA SILMALIS

THE leg­endary wild horses of the Snowy Moun­tains will be saved from slaugh­ter by an un­prece­dented law that pays trib­ute to their place in NSW’s her­itage.

Deputy Premier John Bar­i­laro’s “brumbies bill” will ban a con­tro­ver­sial cull and give the horses le­gal pro­tec­tion, despite NSW’s top sci­en­tists’ fears the mobs are a threat to the alps’ na­tive wildlife.
