From Andrew Page in the Local Newsroom:

The Member for Monaro John Barilaro has welcomed today’s announcement to rule out aerial culling of one of Australia's national icons, the wild brumby.

Mr Barilaro, a strong advocate for the brumby, has fought passionately to ensure they are protected.

"I have always strongly opposed aerial culling as a means of wild horse population control,” said Mr Barilaro.

“Love it or hate it, wild horses are a part of the Kosciuszko environment. The brumbies are a quintessential Australian symbol; they have earned their place as part of the iconic bush heritage in this region and must be protected.

“This region’s economy hinges on tourism; the Kosciuszko National Park is a major drawcard and wild brumbies are part of that.
