Majura ‘roo cull suspended by the ACT Administrative Appeals Tribunal

By johnboy 14 May 2009 25

The ABC reports that the ACT Administrative Appeals Tribunal has waded into ‘roo culling, ordering the half-completed cull on the Majura Range be halted while the Tribunal gathers to deliberate.

    Tribunal president Linda Crebbin has ordered a stay to the cull of kangaroos at the Majura site until the issue can be considered by the tribunal’s full panel.

    She says she doubts a short delay in the kangaroo cull will affect any threatened species.

The “short delay” is to a June hearing. No doubt followed by countless appeals.

I thought you were just a troll, now I can see that you’re a troll wearing a tin-foil hat.

Sorry clown killer you, and all the rest of the idiots spouting complete and utter rubbish about the kangaroos in the ACT, are completely misinformed. The kangaroos are NOT starving (if you had bothered to open your eyes while traveling around Canberra you would have noticed green grass gracing the paddocks they eat in) and the only threat to the native grasslands and the endangered species that are constantly mentioned by the ‘yes minister’ scientific committees is the development push by the Stanhope government. It’s interesting to note the complete silence of the Canberra public (especially the scientific interest groups) when native grasslands are bulldozed to make way for housing and other developments. Don’t hear anybody screaming then.

Kangasrevenge, nice opening troll! Now to the substance of your post:

You lot dare to worry about tax payers money being spent on this case?

Why not? We pay tax seeing as what government gets up to come out of our pockets it only seems reasonable to have an interest.

I worry about my tax payers money being spent on the millions of dollars it costs to pay so many misinformed, bigoted, misogynistic, wildlife hating public servants!

Dry your eyes princess. Of all the issues that you could pick I would hazard that the culling of macropods would be just about have to be the one issue that it was almost impossible to be misinformed on – it’s been done to death. There have been endless studies, reviews, expert panels, consultative approaches, assessments, studies and discussion papers. Misogynistic? Well that’s for you and Steady Eddie to figure out between you. Wildlife hating? I won’t speak for others but I love wildlife (roaming free in the countryside or simmering in camp oven), I am a huge fan of wildlife. Lastly, we’re certainly not all public servants here so painting with that brush won’t work.

Why don’t you pack up and get a job somewhere else where it’s concrete from one end of town to the other? Oh, sorry, you lot wouldn’t have the brains to get a real job.

Not surprising to see that the decision was made by a woman. Of course. When will governments stop making tokenistic appointments of women when it has been proven that they are just not up to the task. The experiment has failed and it’s time to get back to normal again.

I wonder if troll tastes as good as roo?
