Brumby bill to stop the culling of snowy mountain horses

Peter Cochran is a former Nationals Member for Monaro and owner of Cochran Horse Treks and has been fiercely lobbying against a brumby cull announced by the NSW Government in 2016.

The original brumby cull was proposed to reduce the numbers from 6000 to 3000 over a decade.

Environmentalists argued that the horses were doing serious damage to the Kosciuszko National Park.

Peter Cochran spoke to Kayley Harris who has ridden extensively in the Southern Highlands about the debate and the fact that human damage impacts the land more than the horses.
