Brumbies to be declared a "pest"

Category: Capital Radio News

The ACT Government is looking to officially declare brumbies as a pest in the territory.

The Invasive Species Control has raised concerns about an increase in the number of collisions between motorists and horses, with four accidents recorded in the Snowy Mountains last year.

The brumbies have been given heritage status by the New South Wales Government, but the ACT Government is concerned wetlands will be damaged and endangered species threatened, if the population gets out of control.
