MAN FROM COX’S RIVER STAR NOMINATED FOR PRIDE OF AUSTRALIA MEDAL
MAN SAVES 52 WILD HORSES FROM SLAUGHTER
Luke Carlon, one of the two key actors from The Man From Cox’s River, has been nominated for a medal for capturing and re-homing 52 wild horses Burragorang Valley on horseback for National Parks. The idea at first was to slaughter the brumbies but after hearing this, Luke decided to make the effort to capture and save them from the dark path they were going down.
The Pride of Australia Medal is one of News Corporation Australia’s most important community endeavours, playing a fundamental role as a vehicle to celebrate and acknowledge the remarkable contribution and achievements of members of the Australian community.
It took three years to round up the wild horses, after dealing with extreme heat, flash floods, kicking horses and biting snakes! Of course the brumbies haven’t been near the man made life so this made it even more of a challenge!
