The baby wombats need your help

By johnboy - 11 December 2008 32

The RSPCA has been been hit by a spate of orphaned baby wombats and other native wildlife.

    “RSPCA ACT has been overwhelmed with injured and orphaned native animals during the hotter months of the year. Used to caring for wombats on an individual basis from time to time, RSPCA ACT wildlife staff are currently caring for four of these appealing native creatures.

    RSPCA ACT will need to provide hands on care for these four wombats for at least 18 months, a challenge for staff but also a huge burden on already limited facilities.

They’d like you to know that it’s an extra demand on their strained resources. Also try not to mow down as much wildlife with your cars.

They’ve kindly provided us with this picture to show just how cute a baby wombat can be.

I’m guessing this is your cue to provide money or help.

What’s Your opinion?

Can I keep one as a pet like in A Country Practice?

I wish Rudd had given money to the RSPCA, rather than all the greedy, grabbing hands that he’s been dishing the surplus out to lately.

Me too. I don’t mind my taxes going to struggling pensioners, but oh here we go again! “Working Families”. I’d like the portion of my taxes taht are being shovelled to “working families” to go spend in Big W and Domayne to be given instead to the RSPCA.

And the portion they’re bailing out ABC Childcare with, too. Are they going to bail out every bust company? No, didn’t think so.

Give it to the RSPCA.

Oh, and I forgot to add – childcare centres that have been dodgily run and have gotten themselves into a great deal of trouble financially.

And I have never met a wombat I didn’t like.

“I’m guessing this is your cue to provide money or help.”

So RA provides, a call for less tax, welfare bashing and recipes. How cute 🙂

This is disgraceful on the part of RiotACT; I thought wombats were vermin who did horrible damage to your car and caused a nuisance to vegetable plots. After seeing that picture I just want to give him a cuddle. It’s nothing to be proud of you know!

I wish Rudd would lower taxes so that people can put money to the causes they believe in, whether that be Doctors Without Borders (my personal favourite), the RSPCA, or the local supermarket.

“I wish Rudd had given money to the RSPCA, rather than all the greedy, grabbing hands that he’s been dishing the surplus out to lately.”

As opposed to the greedy, cheating, cheap, whining tax payers, he took the money from.

RSPCA is a good place to volunteer some time too.

Do you BBQ them whole?

Wombat veal … yum.
