Two shooters will face court for allegedly shooting 30 horses on Killarney Station in the Victoria River District last month, NT Police said.

Police media manager Rob Cross said a 38-year-old man, and a 40-year-old man, both from Darwin, will face Katherine Local Court on November 9 for property offences and animal cruelty offences under the Animal Welfare Act.

Under the Animal Welfare Act 1999 in the Northern Territory, the men face a fine of up to $30,600, or two year in jail.

Media reports quote station management alleging 30 horses being shot and killed and put the value of the horses at about $500,000.

Darwin branch president of the Sporting Shooters Association of Australia, Andrew Armstrong, had earlier confirmed to the ABC that the two shooters were members.
