NSW Snowy National Parks Boo-Boo Brumby Problem

On the 10th August 2009, SOS-NEWS received a letter from a person wishing to be known as “Boo Boo” who had read one of our stories on the shooting of Brumbies at Thredbo with high powered rifles.  Deciding to become a whistle blower quoted, “I am in a vulnerable position to retaliatory action from NSW National Parks” and request to be anonymous in any publications”.

Our investigators have confirmed important information contained in “Boo Boo’s” first letter and all subsequent letters along with several other whistle blowers information compiled in our extensive database.

Current Model (BAR’s)

From “Boo Boos” letters we followed up one interesting item with a freedom of information disclosure that a  now retired manager of the lower snowy National Parks, held a “Commissioners Permit”(NSW Police Commissioner) for multiple 7.65mm NATO caliber Browning Automatic military assault rifles (BAR), and in the balance of probabilities the licensed transferred to another NP public servant.

The question here;

“why the hell National Parks would need fully automatic military assault rifles when farmers effectively use bolt action .223 rifles for shooting feral wild dogs, goats & pigs plus euthanaising large livestock like horses & cattle”?

 A few Hypotheticals for 2009 and prior to ponder.

If we were to suggest hypothetically;

Two old brumbies that lived on the lower slopes of Mt Janungal for many years in the 90’s and were accustom to hikers and fishermen seeking out campers who had the pleasure of their company were executed.

Two Kosciusko National Park staffers acting under management instructions to shoot these two tame brumbies near Mt Janungal that also involved an RSPCA person.

That this was not for humane purposes but for NSW National Parks opening of the rebuilt O’Keefe’s Hut to tourist.

That the presence of tame friendly wild horses and no sign of horse damaging the environment did not suit that area National Parks management personal agenda along with the Greenies agenda to have all our wild brumbies shot.

That careful timing of the shooting was just before winter limiting the chance of the shattered bodies being found before wild dogs, snow and time destroyed the evidence……... or did it?

Would you be upset?

If we were to suggest hypothetically;

That just outside the Kosciusko Marangle State Forest (with much having been handed over to National Parks) brumby wild horses were shot down in groups under a hail of heavy caliber automatic rifle fire.

Such weapons requiring police commissioner approval.

Would you be upset?

If we were to suggest hypothetically;

That horse riders appeared on a ridge in Kosciusko National Park while parks were aerial shooting training on goats and were driven off by the helicopter along with ground rangers who just happened to be there.

That reports received suggested loud automatic heavy gunfire was heard before the chase which took 4 hours costing many thousands of dollars, then the subsequent kangaroo court case and more dollars.

That wild horse numbers in that area were quietly reduced from weeks of this “Goat Shooting”.

Would you be upset?

 A once silenced and controlled public now seek clarity outside the media and government box of tricks.  Some we will furnish soon through Snowy Brumby Support Group ( www.snowybruymby.com ) as election time looms for politicians, as public servants cringe in fear of exposure.
