Letter to Wood Duck Inn from Wildlife Carers Group:

“Wildlife Carers Group has noted that the Ugly Duckling restaurant in the Wood
Duck Inn in Hall ACT,  website shows that you serve kangaroo meat, crocodile,
etc. 

The Kangaroo commercial industry is extremely inhumane, that is driving our native Kangaroos to extinction.

Furthermore, Wildlife Carers Group has tested all the kangaroo meat that is on sale, and has found that they are all seriously contaminated.

We have included the website links below for you to click on for your information, and urge you to stop purchasing kangaroo meat, and other wildlife native to Australia, to help maintain a healthy well balanced eco system.

The Ghan Serves Kangaroo Meat

As most people are aware, Steve Irwin was spokeperson on the Ghan train. Over three days, the Ghan runs from Adelaide, Alice Springs and Darwin. One of the advertising features of the Ghan is that it serves native foods. For the three years Steve was involved, they wouldn’t serve kangaroo meat. Recently Terri Irwin did a trip on the Ghan and found they were now serving kangaroo meat. She wrote to the Ghan managment, and received a very poor response. So we are asking our Wildlife Bytes readers to write to the Ghan management and express their concern too. The address is Tony Braxton-Smith, CEO, Ground Floor, 422 King William Street, Adelaide, South Australia. Their email address is salesenquiries@greatsouthernrail.com.au If you can, please find the time to write and express your concern, and the fact that you won’t be using the Ghan while they are serving kangaroo meat. We will be writing a very long letter to them. If you are overseas and contemplating travelling to Australia, please write also. *WPAA

Elephants

Inhumane elephant training in the US for movies and circuses, using steel hooked rods, to beat them with, belting babies over the head, for no good reason, stun guns.

While it is nice to see animals in films, if it is not in their natural environment, and behaving naturally, without being tortured to perform, then it is not worthwhile to see them at all.

These are not natural positions for elephants with their massive weight, you can hear the elephants screaming in pain, these inhumane industries need to be shut down world wide, including animal using circuses, click on this link to view video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?NR=1&v=tvW-KB5kvIQ

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.

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 90 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.

BARN OWL+ECHIDNA+WOOLIES REPLY ON ROO MEAT+BAN INHUMANE SHEEP SLAUGHTER IN SA & VIC

BARN OWL + ECHIDNA CALLS + ANOTHER RESPONSE FROM WOOL IES ON KANGAROO MEAT

BARN OWL

Wildlife Carers Group received calls about a Barn Owl in a barn in Fyshwick, with the occupants wanting to have the Owl removed.

They phoned Canberra connect and got the rangers, and to my horror, informed me that they wanted to go out there and shoot the bird, so they rang Wildlife Carers Group.

I stated that shooting the Owl was not an option, and gave the occupants advice that they are very lucky to have the Barn Owl, since it will get rid of all their rodents that they don’t want.

I informed them that the Barn Owls usually live in barns, which is how they got their name in the first place, and sleep during the day, and hunt at night. The bird may have found an area where it can fly in and out of the barn, that is perched very high up in the shed.

I did also advise that they can open up the barn, although it may be a large working shed, rather than a barn, leave the shed, and watch from a safe distance, to see if the bird will fly out.

If the Owl didn’t fly out, I suggested that they just leave the bird alone, and let it sleep through the day, and come and go through the night.

ECHIDNAS

Wildlife Carers Group has received calls about echidnas in front yards, back yards, etc.

Our advice is to leave the echidnas alone, since if they are females, they more than likely have puggles, (baby echidnas) in a den somewhere, and are travelling around for 2 or 3 days to have a good feed, and will then find their way back to their young to feed them.

If the echidnas are moved from the area that they are in, they will lose their sense of direction, and will not find their way back to their puggles, that will then starve to death without their mum.

ANOTHER RESPONSE FROM WOOLIES-I HAVEN’T RESPONDED BACK YET

Woolworths Staff just don’t read the facts, and take serious notice of the test results, that show that they are buying and selling contaminated kangaroo meat, yet alone taking into consideration that these animals are tortured to death, and are being driven to extinction.

Dear Nora Preston,

 

Re: Your query to Woolworths Supermarkets CN-001100966

 

Thank you for contacting us again with regards to your concerns with Woolworths selling Kangaroo products.

Kangaroo meat for human consumption has been available from a wide number of retailers across Australia for many years now in response to strong customer demand.

Kangaroo meat products are produced, stored and transported in accordance with the Australian Standard for Hygienic Production of Game Meat for Human Consumption and the Game, and Rabbit

Meat Orders. This standard is consistent with the Codex Alimentarius Commission’s Code of Hygienic Practice for Meat – reflecting internationally agreed standards.

The Kangaroo Industry in Australia is highly regulated, with many Government Departments and Regulatory Departments overseeing the industry and the processors involved. The Australian Quarantine and Inspection Service (AQIS) monitor industry’s compliance with the Australian standard.

Kangaroo for sale within Woolworths is supplied by suppliers who are fully accredited to the Woolworths Quality Assurance (WQA) standard as well as the industry standard listed above. The

WQA is a proprietary third party audited verification standard. Full compliance to all facets of the
standard is audited twice per year and is a requirement for ongoing supply to Woolworths.

All refrigeration used in the field is certified fit to contain food for human consumption, and is fully licensed and regularly inspected by the relevant state health authorities.

Thank you again for contacting us regarding your concerns. Please be assured that Woolworths takes very seriously the health and safety of it’s customers in providing only safe food products for sale.

 

Yours Faithfully,

ANIMALS AUSTRALIA ASKS FOR EVERYONE’S HELP:

http://www.animalsaustralia.org/take_action/PIMC-non-stun-slaughter/

The last waking moments of an animal raised and killed for meat is not something many people like to think about. But at the very least, Australians expect animals to be stunned insensible to pain and spared from the terror of fully conscious slaughter.

This basic protection is a legal requirement in Australia, however some VIC & SA abattoirs have been given exemptions to cut the throats of live sheep without stunning.
Right now we have a chance to end this cruel practice.

Last month the Primary Industries Standing Committee received messages from some 20,000 Animals Australia supporters before they met to discuss whether to remove these exemptions. The PISC have provided their advice to the primary industries ministers, who will now meet this Friday to make the final decision.

Caring Australians know that subjecting an animal to a terrifying death is unacceptable, and deep down, the Government does too. In 2006 Animals Australia documented the atrocious slaughter of cattle in Egypt whose leg tendons were slashed in an attempt to disable them. So evident was their suffering that the Australian Government immediately suspended live exports to Egypt to prevent Australian animals from enduring such cruelty. But to cut the throat of a live animal — to sever major nerves, muscles and arteries — is arguably even crueller, yet continues in a small number of sheep abattoirs in our own backyard.

Animals Australia has been working hard to stop this brutal practice, but right now we need your help. Please click here to send an instant message to show our ministers that the public is watching and demanding that they use their power to close this cruel legal loophole once and for all.

Since there are only days to act, please forward this important message to friends and family. On behalf of the animals, thank you.

WILDLIFE CARERS GROUP REPORT ON BLACK SWANS AND CYGNETS

On 23/10/11 we visited the 2 Black Swans and their 3 Cygnets, Cygnus atratus, finding the Swans off the nest, that has almost broken up and is slowly disappearing into the pond that is in the middle of the Coranderrk St roundabout in the City Reid area.

Unfortunately it appears that the Swans have lost half of their Cygnets, usually laying 6-9 eggs, with only the last 3 Cygnets that have hatched surviving.

Sunday 23/10/11 Coranderrk St roundabout, 2 Swans and 3 Cygnets

Wildlife Carers Group receives a lot of phone calls, with our phones getting very heavily congested. When the calls go to voicemail, it means that we are busy on another call.

We have received some abusive voice messages that have been made in the middle of the night, at approx 2am and 4am.

Please remember that Wildlife Carers Group is run solely by volunteers. If the calls go to voicemail, please leave a polite message stating the reason for your call, for injured, sick or orphaned wildlife, etc, please do not leave any abusive messages, and only use the Wildlife Carers Group mobile number for sick, injured, orphaned wildlife, or wildlife related issues, wildlife work experience, animal welfare, etc.

Please only use the Wildlife Carers Group mobile number for emergencies for sick, injured, orphaned native wildlife, in the middle of the night.

Wildlife Carers Group received a call for a chewed up koala, on 23/10/11. The finder of the Koala took the Koala to a vet, who appeared to be too frightened to handle the Koala, so advised the finder to return the injured Koala back to her property and release it where she found it.

Thankfully the finder ignored this advice by the vet, and took the Koala to a Koala Society, where the Koala received treatment and antibiotics.

If vets are unfamiliar in handling certain injured wildlife, advise the finders to take the injured wildlife to someone else who is familiar with handling the wildlife, to ensure proper treatment.

It may be worthwhile for vets to have a list of wildlife experts for certain wildlife.

WILDLIFE CARERS GROUP WOULD LIKE TO THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR SUPPORT IN 2009/2010.


WISHING YOU A VERY SAFE AND HAPPY YEAR FOR 2011.

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.

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 90 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.

RESPONSES BETWEEN WILDLIFE CARERS GROUP AND WOOLWORTHS ON THEIR SALE OF CONTAMINATED MEAT FOR PET AND HUMAN CONSUMPTION

RESPONSES BETWEEN WILDLIFE CARERS GROUP AND WOOLWORTHS ON THEIR SALE OF CONTAMINATED KANGAROO MEAT FOR PET AND HUMAN CONSUMPTION

 

Your response sounded like a dishonest government department’s response. You failed to respond to the contaminated Kangaroo meat that you are selling both for pet and human consumption that we tested.

 

Did you click on the links that I sent, or copy and paste the links into your browser to view the contaminated meat that we tested, bought from woolworths?

 

These links also had further links in them that showed the extreme acts of animal cruelty that these kangaroos are put through before, and during slaughter, while they are still alive. The government’s lies about the kangaroo being over abundant are just that, unbelievable lies. The government does not count the Kangaroos, and they are being inhumanely, driven to extinction. The government does not have an expert panel on Kangaroos, they are unqualified, inexperienced, with no knowledge on the species, with the government abusing taxpayers money paying these panels/advisory committees, and so called government scientists, and that includes the rspca.

 

I personally have been around since the early 1980’s, rehabilitating, studying, researching, teaching. Conservation is extremely important, and the way that so called government scientists in ecology are taught these days, is not by experts, but taught by those who have been taught wrongfully by farmers, etc, and taught that Kangaroos are a menace, a pest, when in fact, Kangaroos maintain, a healthy, well balanced eco system.

 

The government code of practice is not adhered to, as the links I sent you showed. Seeing is believing.

 

Listening to, and reading utter rubbish by the government and the kangaroo commercial industry, will not prevent this important species from extinction, will not restore sanity, and humanity, will not prevent any acts of animal cruelty. These people in the inhumane kangaroo commercial industry can find other jobs, that does not include animal cruelty, killing, and driving our protected native wildlife to extinction.

 

We urge that you place a total ban on all kangaroo products, throughout all your outlets, including Big W, etc.

 

The rspca have no credibility, and do not prevent acts of animal cruelty, please click on or copy and paste this link into your browser:

Subject: Woolworths Product Feedback – Kangaroo

Good Morning Nora,

 

Thank you for contacting us with regards to the Kangaroo Meat used in our Fresh Petfood & Human Consumption Range.

 

As you may be aware the kangaroo industry represents an international model of wise and sustainable wildlife utilisation. It is worth AUD $270 million per year and directly employs 4000 people. Human predation is a natural part of kangaroo biology, people have been harvesting kangaroos for over 40,000 years in Australia. The modern day commercial harvest has been utilizing kangaroos for over 40 years. During that time populations have fluctuated, principally in response to seasonal conditions.

 

With a population in 2009 of 27 million, kangaroos are actually amongst the most abundant large wild land mammal on earth and their numbers are increasing each year. Kangaroo populations are estimated by State governments every year to determine a sustainable quota which is usually between 12-15% of total population. All harvesters must undergo training and assessment by regulatory authorities, be licensed to them and report monthly on what kangaroos they take and from where. It is a condition of all kangaroo harvest licenses that they be taken according to a strict Animal Welfare Code of Practice. This Code is available at http://www.environment.gov.au/biodiversity/trade-use/wild-harvest/kangaroo/practice.html. Failure to adhere to this Code can result in significant fines and loss of licence (and therefore income) for kangaroo harvesters. The Code was reviewed recently by an independent committee including non-government animal welfare NGO’s including the RSPCA and found to be best practice.

 

We will continue to support and work with the industry through our trade partners in supplying our customer with a Fresh Petfood offer and alternatives to traditional forms of Red Meat.

 

Thank you for your time and I hope this answers your query,

 

Regards,

Woolworths Limited

Good Afternoon,

 

Thank you for your quick response, we greatly appreciate it.

 

While you write that you have noted our concerns, and the fact that all kangaroo meat that you sell, for pet and human consumption is contaminated, and unfit for pet and human

consumption, are we to understand that you have placed a total ban on all kangaroo products?

 

We would like to ask you to place a permanent total ban on all kangaroo products throughout all your outlets.

 

Your earliest response is greatly appreciated in this matter.

In this article, interviewed on 15/4/10, 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.

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 90 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.

Dear Ms Preston,

 

Thank you for your email regarding Coles stocking Kangaroo products.

 

We were concerned to learn of your dissatisfaction with these products being sold at our stores and extend our apologies.

 

Please be assured that your comments have been noted and forwarded to our Merchandise Department for their information.

 

Once again, thank you for taking the time to contact us. Our business is committed to serving our customers and feedback like yours offers us insight into how well we are achieving this. We look forward to being of service to you in the future.

9/10/11: For All Coles outlets:

 

Good Afternoon,

 

As Founding President of Wildlife Carers Group, I would like to urge Coles not to purchase and sell any kangaroo products, placing a complete ban on all kangaroo products, throughout all Coles/K-mart outlets.

 

Two tinned pet food companies who correctly label their tins as using Kangaroo meat are Purina, and Nature’s Gift, apparently there are other companies who use kangaroo meat, but fail to correctly label their products.

 

Wildlife groups are investigating on who else uses kangaroo meat in their products, but fail to correctly label their tins, etc.

 

Wildlife Carers Group recently bought kangaroo meat from Coles, that is used for both pet and human consumption, and tested them, finding all of the kangaroo meat to be severely contaminated.

 

I would further like to include these links for you to click on, or copy and paste links into your browser, and to read, to further educate you on the fact that kangaroo meat is not fit for pet or human consumption, and to read our test results.

 

This inhumane industry is driving our native protected Kangaroos to extinction.

WILDLIFE CARERS GROUP MONITORING SWANS AND CYGNETS, ACT + KANGAROO MEAT

NEWS ALERT – WILDLIFE CARERS GROUP MONITORING SWANS AND CYGNETS AT ROUNDABOUT-DRIVE CAREFULLY.

Wildlife Carers Group is extremely busy, with the phone becoming quite congested, so please be patient with your calls.

Wildlife Carers Group has been busy monitoring the Swans and their Cygnets, with 4 Cygnets counted on Friday 7/10/11.

On Saturday 8/10/11, as it was getting dark, we visited the Swans and Cygnets, and unfortunately this time we parked in the stones around the pond.

Bad idea, don’t park in the stones, you’ll get stuck and ruin your car.

Female Swan sitting on nest protecting her Cygnets and we suspect, more eggs.

Male Swan providing food

Please remember to drive carefully around the large roundabout heading up to the Reid CIT and the Convention Centre, to avoid hitting these Swans and their Cygnets, should they decide to move across the busy roads to get to the park near the lake.

Wildlife Bytes Australia has sent this information and is requesting that everyone write to the relevant government departments to force correct labeling on pet food, by the companies using kangaroo meat, to show that they are using kangaroo meat:

 

“I object to the fact that kangaroo meat is not labeled on pet foods. I object to buying pet food with kangaroo meat as I am morally and ethically opposed to the mass utilization of our wildlife, the harassment and cruelty involved. Up to one million young and baby kangaroo are simply bashed to death or die slowly from this ugly trade. I do not want to support it in any way. However, currently it is not necessary to label the products as having this meat. I know that Purina are using it, and Nature’s Best. I would like to see proper labeling on ALL pet meat so wildlife supporters can avoid these products. Thank you,” *

DOMESTIC ANIMAL SERVICES VISIT – ATTEMPTING TO SAVE A DOG FROM DEATH ROW

DOMESTIC ANIMAL SERVICES VISIT – ATTEMPTING TO SAVE A DOG FROM DEATH ROW

 

On Tuesday 4/10/11, Wildlife Carers Group, and a member of the public visited Domestic Animal Services, (DAS), in order to save a small dog from death row today, Wednesday 5/10/11.

 

Every Wednesday, all dogs are killed, regardless on when the dogs arrived at DAS, whether it was on the same day as the killing takes place, or a week ago.

 

Their excuse is, they are strays, or they have not past the temperament test.

 

You cannot test a dog for their temperament, just because a dog does not take to whoever does the so called temperament test, does not fail the dog, it fails the handler.

 

Chances are, that with the right person for that dog that is unnecessarily killed, their temperament will be totally different, will be compatible.

 

How do you know the dogs are strays within hours of death day. You simply cannot tell.

 

We arrived at DAS at approx 3.15pm, to find the gates and the front door wide open.

 

So in we went, stopped to speak to a male behind the counter and asked him if we could go through to save a small dog from death row the next day.

 

The male showed absolutely no compassion for the poor dogs about to be unnecessarily killed, to help us save a dog from death row, making one excuse after another, not to let us through.

 

First he said that they were closed, the gates were open because the police had just left who had to change the clocks for them, then, the next excuse was, that the till was closed down.

 

I pleaded with him, and then asked him to atleast give the member of the public the dog if the till is closed, so that we can atleast save one dog from death row, and we will send through a donation that will pay for the dog when the till is open.

 

The staff member would not budge, so all the dogs were killed.

 

No more wasting and abusing taxpayers money in killing dogs.

 

Spend the money on expanding DAS, to allow housing for more dogs, and making it more dog friendly.

 

The one and only padlock left in the after hours pens, has disappeared, with the bucket of water, still in one of the pens, that small dogs cannot reach.

 

Failing to provide strong padlocks to lock each single dog into the after hours pens will not prevent people from placing more than one dog into the same after hours pen. Placing more than one dog in the same pen may cause injuries and or death to one or each dog in the same pen.

 

I didn’t check whether or not the latches have been fixed to operate properly, since there were no padlocks.

 

The after hours pens were at least clean.

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

 

In this article, interviewed on 15/4/10, 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.

Please click on this link 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.

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
