Farmer Protests Government by Riding Horse on Busy Bridge

Glenn Morriss

Sydney, Australia – Glenn Morris knows the danger of clearing vast amounts of native vegetation, and is quite upset at the government’s plan to allow farmers to strip huge sections of land for crops.  “We need vegetation on farms to protect healthy soils and rivers, and yet the State Government plans to allow important native vegetation to be cleared more easily,” Morris said.

To bring awareness to the issue, Morris saddled his horse and took a ride across the busy Sydney Harbor Bridge.  Traffic slowed to a walk behind Morris, who was riding in lane 8 of the bridge.  Police questioned Morris, but did not cite him as it is not illegal to ride a horse on the bridge.  He was informed that interfering with traffic is an offense, but officers declined to issue him a citation.
