Bad news for banjo enthusiasts as rangers launch a crackdown on hunting in Namadgi

Territory and Municipal Services are talking tough about illegal hunting in the Namadgi National Park:

“Illegal hunting in Namadgi National Park is a real problem,” said Namadgi’s Operations Manager Brett McNamara.

“Not only does the unauthorised access by hunters into the park pose a serious public safety risk but hunting dogs cause extensive damage to the native fauna of this protected area.

“Another disappointing trend is the increasing number of pigs introduced into the park by hunters purely for hunting purposes. These pigs bring with them a number of exotic diseases and undermine the efforts of our rangers to control the feral pig population.

“There will be an increased number of staff from the ACT Parks and Conservation Service and ACT Policing out across Namadgi over the next month utilising remote area monitoring combined with a substantial intelligence gathering program to compile a database of known offenders.

“These additional capabilities and extra resources mean that if you go into the park to hunt illegally it is just a matter of time until you get caught,” Mr McNamara said.

This despite just four months ago telling us they were winning the war on pigs.

Poor henrybg. It must be awful to have a mind like his.

I think that anyone who argues that hunting is not cowardly and cruel has something wrong with their brains.

Well, enjoy your lentils then.

I’d hate to imagine what happens in the next few photos taken shortly afterwards – naked chick covered in blood spreadegled over the dead pig while she cops one up the clacker???

It’s not very reassuring to learn that there are extremely sick minds out there. Let’s just hope nobody is ever foolish enough to allow Mr Evil anywhere near any firearms.

I shoot – and I vote (and I also do jury duty when requested because I live within my means).

…and you also have extremely bizarre and worrying sexual fantasies.

That’s not my particular fantasy – but is one that would probably appeal to the sort of gun-toting hick who thinks it’s cool to get his ‘tart’ to pose topless with a rifle covering her breasts next to a dead animal.

My fantasy revolves around a topless chick standing next to a PC while using the keyboard to cover her breasts, with a picture of Bill Gates hanging on the wall next to her.
