It’s a competition aimed at rehabilitating an often misunderstood animal, as an 11th hour appeal to stop aerial culling at Singleton Army Base continues.

    Wonderful story. Let’s pray it helps the poor brumbies due to be aerial shot in Singleton (which should be illegal). Hope the defence force find some compassion!

    Please follow their plight and report on the carnage if it happens. We need your eyes and voice.

    Thank you
