        You need to contact LesPoochs cause I think they warranty against this type of damage!

            If les pooches doesnt help you. I could repair it for you or read below how I would do it. It might cost you 10 bucks, but far less than a new brush.

            I would first gorilla glue the two pieces together. Then to reinforce it i would drill a hole from the base of handle towards the head of the rush. I would use a 3/32 bit. You will have to get a fairly long one. I would then get a 3/32 or slightly smaller piece of aluminum or steel rod. I would sand the aluminum rod down with its only less than a slight fit to the drill hole. You should be able to get the rod in and out of the hole with very little effort. I would then coat the end of the rod with gorilla glue and insert the whole rod into the drilled handle hole. Let it set up completely. after that take a hack saw and cut the end of the rod off that remains sticking out of the handle. Finally file the end of the handle smooth.

            Just remember when you use goriilla glue the ends need to be wet before you apply the glue and join them. It helps activate the glue.

              I will contact Les Poochs- but if they can't help me the duct tape is coming out. I do keep a roll handy! Riding in that plane would be a bit scary.
