    3 days and over 600 horses killed. That is a bargain. BHP would be cleaned up in a day. Kosci would take much longer. The report is interesting. Still recommends aerial above ground shooting with good reason. More chance a wounded horse can get away on the ground. This is another instance of trial by media and governments bowing to the whims of the press. Too much heat. Aerial culling of horses has taken place elsewhere in NSW but it was not reported. That apart from the Singleton Army base. The current aerial deer culls on the Snowy and south of Hotham (this coming week weather permitting) are being watched closely but no horses have been found shot. It seems recommendations in this report have been adopted in Vic as well with multiple shots in each animal.
