The RSPCA says it wont support a cull of wild horses in the Kimberley of Western Australia until all options for their removal are discussed.

The  is seeking permission to cull thousands of horses which are damaging the land.

The Department of Indigenous Affairs estimates there are 10,000 wild horses in the area.

In November last year 100 of the brumbies became bogged and died at a water hole near the Balgo community in the desperate search for water.

The RSPCA's Tim Main says they still waiting to see details on how the government plans to cull the animals.

"We do have concerns with aerial culling methods, we have liased with the government before and said preferdly we'd want a second sweep, and that would have to be done on the ground to ensure all the animals are humanely euthanised, if that's the path the Government chooses to go with."
