Watch out Skippy, here comes the cull

The Department of Territory and Municipal Services has added to their website a Q&A on kangaroo culling.

Halfway down the page is the announcement that from this Saturday 19 June to 31 July those shooters who have passed “a recent accuracy test administered by the Australian Federal Police, as well as pass a challenging macropod identification test” will be loose in the Canberra Nature Park.

Apparently 1890 is the magic number of roos to go.

Someone somewhere is digging a big hole to put them in.

What’s Your opinion?

Justin heywood…. Stanhope said the same thing during the Googong Cull. “Easily shown” took six months to prove. Ludicrous lies repeated enough by politicians seem to be forgotten in six months. I doubt much has changed.

CT 2004 http://www.canberratimes.com.au/news/local/news/general/roo-cull-worried-scientists-foi-file/300368.aspx

” a senior ecologist thought the cull was not science-based, kangaroo numbers at the reserve (Googong) had crashed by 65 per cent and that the operation was initiated by a park ranger.”

“A Government spokesman said the Chief Minister was ” well aware” the population had dropped by 65 per cent. “

What the government is doing now is a ludicrous waste and dodgy. Not much has changed.
