To the Honourable the President and members of the Senate in Parliament assembled. The petition of the undersigned citizens respectfully shows that:

The slaughter of the wild horses in Queensland and Northern Territory is completely unnecessary and very much inhumane.

Your petitioners humbly pray that every effort is made to find an alternative solution to this horrifying act. At the very least, try to ensure that the killings, if they are still to continue, be controlled and carried out humanely. There is no excuse for such barbaric attitudes towards life in this so called ' civilized' country.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
