The Cull goes to Court. Delayed until at least Wednesday

By johnboy 7 June 2013 42

Courts have a natural inclination to increase their jurisdiction.

So it’s a little sad but no surprise to hear from TAMS that the anti-cull nutbags have won the right to be heard:

A hearing was held this afternoon at the ACT Administrative Appeals Tribunal (ACAT) regarding an application from Animal Liberation ACT and Australian Society for Kangaroos regarding the Conservator of Flora and Fauna’s decision to issue licences to Territory and Municipal Services for the purposes of undertaking a conservation cull of 1455 eastern grey kangaroos at seven reserves.

ACAT determined that both groups need to submit additional supporting evidence at a hearing to be held on Wednesday 12 June 2013.

“It is important to understand that the outcome today is not about the science that supports the conservation cull but is in fact about the right for these organisations to challenge the decision to grant a licence under the Nature Conservation Act 1980,” said Daniel Iglesias, Director, ACT Parks and Conservation.

“At this stage it is not an injunction or postponing of the cull, it is simply a procedural process to give the tribunal time to determine whether or not they will hear the case. We will comply with the tribunal’s instructions to not commence the conservation cull until at least Wednesday’s proceedings are heard.

What I love most (not) about the kangaroo cull (aka the roo massacre) is that it comes around every year, just like Christmas. In fact it is Groundhog Day all over again, but with added bullets.

Every year everyone trots out the same tired old arguments for the cull, and the same tired old arguments against the cull. Frankly, none of them are particularly credible. The ACT Government’s “science” and concern for grass and little critters is a little undermined by the ongoing bulldozer of development and human population growth (and their preference for spending money on bullets over controlling weeds, as eloquently pointed out by an earlier poster).

Yet the animal rights folks’ arguments are undermined by their general, err, sorry, nuttiness.

Perhaps one day someone will make an honest objective assessment of the situation. I had kinda hoped that ShaneR would, but perhaps next year.

For this year, vale Skippy, I hope you are reincarnated as something more protected, or bulletproof – or maybe as a bullbar.

This is how terrorism begins. People get involved in animal liberation then take their radical anti-human approach to the next stage and blow up people. The aim of animal rights activists is the removal of all people from the earth and to hand it over to animals. It is a proven fact that the majority of terrorists are vegetarians or vegans (like animal rights activists) and this is part of the wider left wing Agenda 21.

A bit like how the popularity of The Simpsons led to an increase in organised crime, eh Johnny Boy?

Andrew I love how you take the bait each time. If only other Rioters could bite as frequently. By the way Andy I have a new election video on YouTube, could you kindly promote it for me?

It doesn’t count as a “bite” when you genuinely believe the boneheaded things you say.

If you like the attention, why not allow comments on your videos?
