Wild horses, known as brumbies, are running rampant in the Australian outback, creating havoc for ranchers, who are out to exterminate these majestic animals. Trying to corral them requires a coordinated, multipronged attack with two helicopters and several men on horseback to herd the fiercely wild horses into a stockyard. Matt happens to stumble upon other infamous outback wildlife, including the highly venomous eastern brown snake, able to kill a human.
