DRONES FOR ROOS?

By crappicker 23 May 2012 24

Animal lovers can use readily available technology in their struggles to protect roos against unwarranted cullings.

Remote controlled Hexacopters (http://hexacopters.com/) with videocamera are available off the shelf for about one grand.

With a reach up to a few kms they can survey most of Canberra’s nature reserves from their borders.

Video footage of roo killings may sway Canberrans against destruction of peaceful roo societies, our national symbol, and Youtube clips of joey decapitations may send ACT Tourism screaming to government.

Heavylift Hexacopter versions, or perhaps Dodecacopters, may be used to pipe loud distress sounds to unsuspecting kangaroo crowds that are in for the kill.

If that would fail, the copters may be used for smart bombing.

Dousing of their killer utes with butyric acid of Japanese whaler fame or persistent red paint, may deter even the hardiest of roo mercenaries.

What’s Your opinion?

DISAPPOINTED saw the headline and I can hand in a dead ‘roo and get a drone?

I think the headline suggests that you can hand in a drone and get a roo. My freezer’s not big enough though…

Sorry to be a killjoy, but I suspect those laughing about roo culls haven’t been on one.

In the past, the shooters we had on the farm generally required us to follow up behind with an iron bar to take care of the joeys in the pouches, or charged an additional penalty fee to do the job themselves.

It was (is) a task no-one enjoyed.

As if anyone here was suggesting that it is a pretty sight? Killing a joey with a blow to the back of the neck is still a whole lot more humane than letting them slowly starve to death. Or possibly allowing them to be rescued by ‘survival of the cuddliest’ activists who will fatten them up for the next cull.
