CARING FOR WILDLIFE – cat attacks, vehicle strikes

Spring has sprung and our wildlife are busy nesting. Reptiles are well and truly out after the long winter months of hibernation, looking for food, mates, etc.

Wildlife Carers Group is receiving a huge volume of phone calls, with the phone being congested, please be patient.


If wildlife have been attacked by cats, carefully wrap the injured wildlife in a towel or blanket, depending on the size, then dissolve a teaspoon of cooking salt in a cup of warm boiled water, using cotton squares, soak it in the saline solution, and carefully wipe off the cat saliva, wiping from the centre of the wound, outwards, then throw that square out, and use a fresh one, till the wound is clean.

Cats saliva contains harmful bacterias, that will kill the wildlife, unless immediately washed away.

This information is not to cause ill feelings against cats and to try and eradicate them or to cause harm to cats, cats have their place in society as well.

Cat owners must be responsible with their cats, and keep them in a cat friendly enclosure, preferably attached to the house, so that they can go in and out of the house and enclosure, or just keep your cats inside with cat litters. This type of caring for your cats also reduces cat fights amongst each other, abscesses, diseases etc, reducing your vet bills.


Wildlife Carers Group is receiving a lot of calls of vehicle strikes amongst our wildlife.

Please remember that our wildlife do not have any road sense.

Wildlife are vulnerable, so please GIVE WAY to wildlife, slow down, drive carefully.

All wildlife are protected, if you hit any wildlife, by law, you must stop, pick the animal up, carefully wrap the animal in whatever you have, and call Wildlife Carers Group to help the wildlife on 0406 056 099.


The Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service (QPWS) is charged with managing protected areas and forests, as well as the irreplaceable wildlife that lives alongside us and shares the environment we all depend on. For the past 10 years the 2001 Master Plan for Queensland’s parks system has helped guide the way QPWS manages national parks to protect natural and cultural values. From July until December 2011 the Master Plan is being updated to reflect the challenges and opportunities that QPWS will face over the next 10 years. It will address all aspects of QPWS business, including protected areas on land and sea, as well as forests and wildlife. A consultation draft has been developed: Naturally Queensland 2020, the Master Plan for protected areas, forests and wildlife. This draft can be downloaded from the following link: http://www.derm.qld.gov.au/parks_and_forests/managing_parks_and_forests/management_plans_and_strategies/parks_master_plan.html You are encouraged to comment to help set the scene for the future of protected areas, forests and wildlife in Queensland. The consultation period will close on 20 November 2011. To comment or for further enquiries please either email: parkswildlifevision@derm.qld.gov.au, phone Danielle Shanahan on 07 33305944, or post your comments to: QPWS draft Master Plan Naturally Queensland 2020, Master Plan team, Department of Environment and Resource Management, GPO Box 2454, Brisbane QLD 4001.

Wildlife Carers Group has received calls about the new rspca ads the media are advertising for them, in concern that these animals will be killed, if people leave the kittens alone and call the rspca .

If you have seen these ads put out by the rspca, you can help the kittens by not calling the rspca and ignoring their ads.

With Wildlife Carers Group receiving verbal complaints by volunteers who have left the rspca, that at the rate the rspca are killing all the animals, there will be no animals left, if you can help to save the kittens yourselves, do indeed pick them up, and help save them yourself.

If the media want to help save animals, they should boycott the rspca and not advertise at all for the rspca.



There can be no discrimination against our native wildlife, all native wildlife are precious to our Eco system, in assisting to maintain a healthy well balanced Eco system, and will be protected, and rehabilitated equally.

Wildlife Carers Group, the only local wildlife group with long term expertise and knowledge in our native wildlife, that will act on, and investigate animal cruelty/welfare/rights, and, as a community group, that also cares about our community, and the rights of our community groups.

Wildlife Carers Group, the only local wildlife group helping to keep our state and country out of deficit, with no government funding, run solely by volunteers, that is keeping you in a job.

This species maintains a healthy well balanced eco system.

You can help us make the necessary changes for our native protected Eastern Grey Kangaroos, by signing this petition, and circulating this for us http://www.gopetition.com/petitions/saveallthe-kangaroos.html.

In this article, interviewed on 15/4/10, http://www.nowuc.com.au/2010/05/27/kangaroo-plan…/comment-page-1/ don fletcher from tams says that kangaroos are not the main problem and in fact ‘native grasses’ are not threatened with extinction, but other animals and plants are, and that “the biggest ‘contributor’ to the loss of the natural treeless grasslands of our region has been agriculture (by far)”.

This statement is admitting to the flawed, dishonest kangaroo management plan, and russell watkinson’s media release, on Friday 18/6/10, that blames the kangaroos for driving legless lizards, earless dragons, etc, and the deteriorating grasslands and woodlands to extinction, by eating all the grasses, when fletcher admits that the native grasses are not threatened by the kangaroos, but by human activity, including toxic sprays.

Please check out this link http://www.canberratimes.com.au/news/local/news/general/roo-best-custodian-for-some-plants/1652005.aspx, that was in the Canberra times on 17/10/09, that completely refutes the allegations against the roos destroying grasslands, that was sent to maxine cooper, that were also ignored.

The report is by Julie Lindner, who has also been studying the grasslands and the roos for the past 20 years, which backs up what I’ve been saying all along.

http://www.canberratimes.com.au/news/local/news/general/roo-best-custodian-for-some-plants/1652005.aspx, with a more recent article in the Chronicle in the ‘letters to the editor’ section, titled ‘culling controversy’ p.23, 14/6/11.

Please click on this link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JUZrKj6ClBg ‘KANGAROO CHILLER BOX INVESTIGATION’/’KANGAROOS ON TRACK TO EXTINCTION’, that contains the cruel bashing to death of roos that are shot, but not directly killed, hung up while still alive, and left suffering, trembling as they hang, tortured to death, and joeys bashed to death, possibly attempting to decapitate the joeys head on the back of the truck with several blows.

Please click on this link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zbn3c8EcNRk&feature=related, so called controlled government butchering, you will note that the kangaroos are still alive when hung up, suffering, AND BEING TORTURED TO DEATH, the male is laughing at the cruelty he has just inflicted on this kangaroo, a joey stomped to death, even the child stomps on it as he walks past following his father, orphaned joeys hopping around, left to starve to death, a joey bashed till its eyes popped out, but is still alive, suffering, a prolonged death, and the male admitting that these are protected species. Native protected animals called pests, the very same native animals that maintain a healthy well balanced eco system. The code of practice that the shooter refers to is inhumane, and unacceptable, as witnessed in this video footage. Kangaroos are not fit for human or dog consumption, heavily contaminated with various diseases/harmful bacterias, e.coli, salmonella, staphylococcus, streptococcus, toxoplasmosis, preserved illegally with sulphur dioxide that causes thiamine deficiency, (a white crystalline solid forming part of the vitamin B complex, C12H17CIN4OS; a vitamin (B1), required by the nervous system, absence of which causes beri-beri and other disorders), causing death, intake of pesticide spraying to control locusts, etc. Keep watching till it stops, keep an eye on the timer, next to the speaker symbol, length 10:59.

There are more links on youtube to show the facts on the extreme cruelty committed to our native protected macropods.

Possum abattoir


Possum Abattoir – Lenah Game Meats, Tasmania —EngageMedia

These animals are still alive and awake, when going through the abattoir’s chute processing system, dropped on top of one another, through a swinging door, to go through to the next phase, with several possums piled on top of one another, into the same boxes, when delivered to the abattoir, (possums are extremely territorial,) females with joeys, butchered, and bashed to death. Please Help stop these extreme acts of animal cruelty and export. You can help stop these extreme acts of animal cruelty to these possums by adding the above link to the possum abattoir and lodging your submissions by 23/4/10, to wta@environment.gov.au, wildlife.enq@dpipwe.tas.gov.auand click on link http://www.environment.gov.au/biodiversity/trade-use/invitecomment/brushtail-possum.html Submissions are now closed. Shutting down this industry will help end acts of animal cruelty, and prevent this species from being driven to extinction. This species maintains a healthy, well balanced eco system.


Terminating the rangers from their jobs, who are responsible for the inhumane treatment of dingoes on Fraser Island, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xSSaknF6Wnw&feature=youtu.be, who are starving them to death, mismanaging them, mistreating them will prevent driving these spectacular native wildlife species to extinction, and help end acts of animal cruelty. Changing the Qld government legislation and constitution, to humanely conserve this species, and their habitat. Erecting GIVE WAY to DINGOES/WILDLIFE Signs. We can see their marine life up and down the Qld coast, however, the only unique sighting that Fraser Island can boast about, and offer to the tourists, is the pure breed native Dingoes, once the last 60-80 odd Dingoes that are left on the Island are driven to extinction, through arrogance, mismanagement and mistreatment, Fraser Island will have nothing left to offer to the huge tourist trade it currently holds, which will end Fraser Island tourism. This species maintains a healthy well balanced eco system.
