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.

KANGAROO MEAT – WOOLWORTHS and COLES

Wildlife Carers Group has written to Woolworths, AND Coles, requesting that they stop purchasing kangaroo meat for human and pet consumption. We sent these links to them: To see Wildlife Carers Group Kangaroo Meat Testing, click on this link: https://wildlifecarersgroup.wordpress.com/2011/09/04/wildlife-carers-group-kangaroo-meat-testing-%e2%80%93-5-day-work-experience-student-4-8-july-2011/?sn=l

This species maintains a healthy, well balanced eco system.

 

We sent this email through Woolworths and Coles, online website feedback:

Good Afternoon,

 

As Founding President of Wildlife Carers Group, I would like to urge Woolworths not to purchase and sell any kangaroo products, placing a complete ban on all kangaroo products.

 

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 Woolworths, 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.

This message came back from Coles after submission: Thank you for your enquiry, a confirmation email has been sent to your email address, This message in our inbox: Thank you for taking the time to contact us today.

We value your feedback and wish to assure you that your comments have been referred to one of our Customer Care team members who will endeavour to be in contact with you within the next 48 hours.

Kind Regards,

Coles Customer Care

 

We urge you to also email Woolworths http://www.woolworths.com.au/wps/wcm/connect/website/woolworths/contact+us and Coles http://www.coles.com.au/Coles/Coles-Feedback.aspx to encourage that they ban all kangaroo products. You can use Wildlife Carers Group testing links, etc to assist you with your emails.

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,” *

 

 

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.

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.

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.

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 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
