Decapitated joey

By crappicker 30 May 2012 108

headless joey

I have not seen many kangaroos lately on my early morning walks in the Wanniassa Hills Reserve. It is closed for the cull, …bugger them. This morning there were none. Instead the crows had gathered just above the pond south of Long Gully Road. There were many car tracks. Nearby, the body of a young kangaroo, about a meter stretched. Decapitated.

Walking between the kangaroos is one of the joys of my walks. I have trained my German Shepherd to respect them and the kangaroos know, so we can pass close.

I guess the same happened when the utes moved in for the kill.

Truly disgusting!

What’s Your opinion?

Code of conduct: http://www.environment.gov.au/biodiversity/wildlife-trade/publications/kangaroo/pubs/code-of-conduct-non-commercial.pdf

As a guess, a joey of that size should’ve been killed with a bullet to the head. Though it’s hard to tell from that photo. Maybe it was small enough to kill with a blow to the back of the head. Either way, I fail to see how decapitation would contravene the code.

The only cases of contravening the code that could possibly be proven by examining dead bodies is if there was only one bullet wound that would’ve logically only caused injury, not death. Or joeys starved to death, but you would have trouble proving that that was a direct result of the cull.

Poorhatsoap, my friend, may I suggest that you lift yourself mentally above that bar of soap, take a good look beyond your mad hat, …and bingo, you may well discover that the earth is not really all that flat afterall. Once you have advanced to that state of mind, you may be ripe to apply Occam’s Razor in interpreting the observations herebefore presented against the code of practice for kangaroo culling.

You’ve gone and picked up the crack pipe again. Oh dear.

Oh that’ll do me, you’re an absolute lunatic.

If you applied Occam’s Razor to this situation the exact opposite of what you’re saying is far more likely to be true.

You’ve made multiple assumptions in all of your posts, with zero evidence other than one dead young kangaroo and managed to concoct some story of unknown kangaroo cullers driving through these reserves committing acts of animal cruelty against joeys.
With the evidence of animal activists digging up kangaroo corpses and cutting holes in predator fences in the last week, your story becomes even less likely.

Either you’re trolling or you need to get help.

Ah, so you are not against the cull as such, but mainly against contraventions of the code of practice? Why didn’t you say so in the first place?!

The way I would’ve brought that to attention though would’ve been to quote the relevant sections of the code and then list the details of the contraventions. Actually, the way I would’ve gone about is to negotiate with TAMS and the RSPCA to allow observers to ensure the code of practice is followed correctly before the cull. Though I thought the RSPCA already did this, but I could be wrong.

I just don’t get what you think to achieve by posting meaningless photos meant to shock people or cutting fences and putting an endangered species at risk, wasting government money that could’ve been put to good use by people who are thinking of long term alternative solutions, etc.

So good on you for wanting to make a difference, but unless you are going to put your money where your mouth is and work methodically towards the outcomes you want to achieve in a sensible manner, you are totally wasting our time. I tell my 7yo all the time that good intentions mean very little in this world.

Poorhatsoap, there is hard, pictural, evidence that a cull occurred where I happened to find the decapitated young kangaroo.

Crappicker, I’m not debating whether or not a cull occurred at the location, I’m disputing your claim that it was illegal, cruel killing. As far as I’m aware, there is nothing illegal about the government sanctioned cull.

Applying labels such as illegal and cruel only makes you seem like you’re a few sandwiches short of a picnic.

Yes, and we’ve been saying SF-WHAT? for days now.

Animals kill other animals. People kill animals. Animals kill people. It’s normal, and only freaks get their knockers in a twist about it.

If they want to find out who’s digging up the bodies and destroying Parks fencing, I’m sure a shortlist of candidates is quickly determined:
First, one wing of the professional (welfare-funded) troublemakers:

Then there are the hysterics, obviously far more potentially dangerous than the above layabouts:
http://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/news/national/actors-show-for-roo-cull/story-e6freuzr-1111116395427

And there’s Carolyn Drew who forewarned the media of some of their shenanigans:
http://www.canberratimes.com.au/act-news/activists-ready-to-disrupt-cull-of-2000-roos-20120521-1yzv3.html

She admits she knows who the sick fcks are who’ve been digging up the dead kangaroos:

I’d say ASIO should be onto these people bigtime: they represent a great potential risk as they are obviously unstable and over-emotional as well as active and breaking the law.

We know. You dug it up, removed the head and took the photos.

You’re insane, go join the Greens.
