Scientist warns of brumby danger to fish

    Description

    The legislation bans the lethal culling of brumbies in the national park because of their cultural significance, reversing the NSW government's plan to cull an estimated 90 per cent of wild horses in the park over 20 years, leaving just 600.

    University of Canberra associate professor Dr Mark Lintermans has blasted the decision, saying it "flew in the face of science" and warning that it could spell the end for the stocky galaxias freshwater fish.
