What native Australian animal are brumbies threatening?
Brumbies affect a variety of burrowing animals and native herbivores. As brumbies eat the native vegetation, this impacts on the food sources of native herbivores such as wombats. Brumbies also affect burrowing amass such as bilbies and marsupial moles, as their hooves impact the ground, sometimes causing burrows to cave in, and sometimes making it too difficult for naive animals to dig.

What happens to the brumbies when they have been caught by the men and dogs?
Rather than the more humane method of passive trapping, the Victorian Brumbies are 'run' - hunted by dogs and riders and roped from horseback. The contract is held by an independent group who takes, as part payment for their efforts, the wild horses they catch. What happens then? The picture (right) is one of a Brumby yearling in a pen with other Brumbies. It was taken at the Bairnsdale horse sales just after this pen of four yearling Brumbies had been sold to the knackery, for a top price of $80 (for the group). This is where our Brumbies go - to be processed for pet meat.

How do Brumbies survive in the wild?
Many people believe that when they place a horse in stall or a perfectly level pasture they are helping the horse. True you make it easier but that is all. Horses especially wild horses, known as brumbies in Australia, know how to maneuver the difficult terrain because they have been doing it since their youth. As for food and water Brumbies tend to stay in the mountains of Australia where water and grass are plentiful because of the rain. They also have very few predators in Australia.

Why were brumbies introduced to Australia?
"Brumby" is the term for wild horses in Australia. The brumbies in Australia were not introduced in their current form. They are descendants of horses that were released, or that escaped, into Australian bushlands when the early settlers arrived. Brumbies are the result of various horse breeds being introduced into Australia over time, and inter-breeding to make very hardy wild hirses capable of surviving in Australia's harsh conditions, whether the outback, the mountains or the coastal regions. The very first horses came to Australia on the First Fleet, in 1788. Brumbies come from the stock of horses all over the world, including South Africa, British draught horses, thoroughbreds and Arabians.
