A French woman sweetens the mist in Australia

A French woman sweetens the mist in Australia

Do you know Alienor de Gouvello? Did you know that in Australia some horses were shot by the air? Not very Aussie Spirit all that! But thanks to a French passionate woman, this is no longer the case.

Fogs: Australia's wild horses

I

A Brumby is a wild horse resulting from the phenomenon of maroonage in Australia. They are descended from escaped or lost horses, sometimes since the first waves of European colonization. In recent years in Australia, they have been a scourge for the natives: the government believes that these animals, considered wild and dangerous to humans, are proliferating too quickly and are taking over the water points needed by the people living in the outbach. Without asking themselves any more questions, they decided to shoot them down by air instead of sterilizing them.

Aliénor de Gouvello: the adventurous Breton

Settled in Australia for more than 13 years, this great friend of animals, especially horses, has succeeded in bending the Australian government. How? How? Eleanor undertook a hike of more than 5000 km to save this species. This fog defender left for 13 months through the Australian bush: 5,330 km of altitude difference in one of the harshest treks in the world.  It has thus shown that these horses, which are supposed to be dangerous for humans because they are totally wild, have been protected from a hostile nature that they know by heart (the intelligence of a horse is no longer to be proven). 

Widely relayed on social networks by animal advocates, his trip may have had a greater impact than expected. Indeed, she won her case because the Australian government recognized that these wild horses brought by the pioneers were part of the Australian heritage....

From now on, this breed is protected by the government and the eradication of horses is no longer authorized and will even be prohibited from 2021. VICTORY!!!
