Last month the National Parks and Wildlife Service and NSW Police ran a joint law enforcement operation targeting illegal hunting in the Khancoban area.
The operation was conducted following reports of illegal hunting in and around Kosciuszko National Park. 

A number of vehicles were pulled over and searched during the operation and several offences were detected.
Multiple infringement notices and cautions were issued relating to firearms offences, as well as several offences relating to illegal access and being in charge of dogs in a national park.
Of particular concern is the shooting of a wild horse on the Khancoban to Cabramurra road sometime shortly after the June long weekend.
Police and NPWS are appealing for any information relating to the incident.
Penalties for offences associated with illegal hunting range from on the spot fines of $300 per offence to a maximum $11,000 and or 6 months in prison.
