LETTERS FROM TWEED HEADS FOR RECOGNITION OF WILDLIFE CARERS GROUP WORK-TWEED HEADS MAGPIE SAVED.

In September 2011, Wildlife Carers Group made phone calls to the Tweed Heads Police Station to stop the killing of the nesting magpie, that was ordered to be shot by the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Services.

Ongoing emails between Wildlife Carers Group, the government department, and Nationals Party, who represented Wildlife Carers Group, with Wildlife Carers Group requesting that they amend their legislation to protect all nesting magpies, in all circumstances.

While we are aware that this amendment can take time, We are still awaiting to see the amended legislation.
 

On Friday, 25/11/11, Founding President of Wildlife Carers Group, NORA PRESTON, collected Wildlife Carers Group mail, and found a copy of the letter posted out to us by Geoff Provest, written to Geoff Provest MP, Nationals State Member for Tweed, by Robyn Parker MP, Minister for the Environment, Minister for Heritage:

‘Thank you for your representations of 12 September 2011 on behalf of Ms Nora Preston of the Wildlife Carers Group, regarding the management of magpies by the National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS). I appreciate you bringing Ms Preston’s concerns to my attention.

The ongoing commitment and hard work of the Wildlife Carers Group is commendable, and I would like to pass on my sincere thanks to Ms Preston for her advice regarding magpies……’

That letter included Geoff’s ‘with compliments’ slip with his hand written note:

‘for your records.

The magpie is still alive and sill in its own territory. Nothing has been heard of its attacks for at least a month’.

Below are the previous reports written by Wildlife Carers Group on the Tweed Heads Magpie saga:

Wildlife Carers Group Responses to replies from National Parks and Wildlife Service, (the licence issued to shoot the magpie has been cancelled, with amendments to NPWS policy being looked at, to remove the word ‘destruction’), and Office of Geoff Provest MP NSW Member for Tweed, The Nationals for Regional NSW, to read the full report please click or copy and paste this link into your browser: https://wildlifecarersgroup.wordpress.com/2011/09/12/tweed-heads-licence-issued-to-shoot-magpie-cancelled/?sn=l


To read yesterdays article to refresh your memory and what Wildlife Carers Group wrote: The Tweed Heads magpie has been spared for now, however to ensure that this mapgie, or any other magpie are never threatened by National Parks and Wildlife Services again, Wildife Carers Group has made a couple of phone calls to Tweed Heads, and sent out emails to educate in avoiding swooping magpies in nesting seasons, rather than issuing licences to kill, to view the full report please click or copy and paste this link into your browser:

The Sydney Morning Herald ran a poll when it was first announced that NPWS issued a licence to shoot the nesting magpie defending her young, 79% opposed the Magpie from being shot.

Photos of ‘with compliments’ slip from Geoff, and letter from NSW Government Minister for the Environment Robyn Parker MP, received by Geoff’s office on 17/11/11, are below, for your information.

KANGAROOS – CHRONICLE ARTICLE 22/11/11, p. 2, by Meredith Clisby.

Article: ‘roo rise puts drivers at risk’

‘…..NRMA Insurance head of research Robert McDonald’ is claiming that suddenly the ACT has a Kangaroo population explosion, but who also ‘….warns drivers to be more prepared on the roads and slow down in wildlife zones the same way as if the weather conditions are bad…..’, echoing Wildlife Carers Group’s Founding President NORA PRESTON’s very own repeated cautions, to slow down and Give Way to our vulnerable wildlife, who have no road sense, with their habitat turned into roads and buildings, while the Chronicle reporter is also quoting ‘an Environment and Sustainable Development Directorate spokeswoman’ who has INCORRECTLY claimed that ‘….the Kangaroo population has increased by about 21 % from last year. This included a 3% decrease at Mulanggari Nature Reserve, and a 64% increase at Mulligans Flat Woodland Sanctuary.’

The ACT government claims that “The fence at Mulligans Flat Woodland Sanctuary removes some of the factors limiting other populations, namely dogs, motor vehicles, and the ability to disperse into surrounding suburbs”,..

“Consequently the Kangaroo population at the sanctuary increased dramatically in response to the good seasonal conditions.” …..NRMA Insurance received 450 claims for animal-related collisions in 2010, while AAMI received 492…444 of these claims were for Kangaroos. The other claims included 12 for domestic or farm animal collisions and 38 wild animal collisions, including 16 Wombats, 4 Wallabies, a flock of galahs, an emu and 2 koalas.

While the ACT Government and the Australian road rules require people to report collisions with animals, there were only 117 reported crashes of this type in 2010.

The Directorate spokeswoman said while the ACT Government focused its road safety resources towards preventing “the most serious injury” to people, there had been important steps taken to minimise collisions with Kangaroos. This includes the use of 25 GPS tracking collars to map the movements, including road crossings of Kangaroos and the use of funnel fencing and underpasses.

She said further fencing and underpasses would be considered on all new high speed roads where underpass construction would be cost effective. Next year the ACT Government will also trial a new telephone-linked tracking system for Kangaroos, which will email data daily by SMS.

Mr McDonald said the best advice for avoiding Kangaroos was to slow down in sign posted Kangaroo hotspots, never swerve to avoid hitting them, and get used to the ABS if your car had it.’

While Wildlife Carers Group was initially advising on fencing for Kangaroos, further experience has unfortunately shown that fencing seriously injures and kills Kangaroos and their Joeys, as they are frightened, chased, they jump into high fences, that they cannot clear, such as the high fencing at Rose Cottage horse paddocks, where Wildlife Carers Group has had to rescue severely injured Kangaroos from, other fences that the larger females can clear, the smaller Joeys hopping after their mother, cannot clear, and get seriously injured or horrifically killed, suffering if they aren’t found and handed in to Wildlife Carers Group for immediate treatment.

Underpasses have also been found to be hazardous to Kangaroos, when they have been frightened, Kangaroos who are being chased by idiots, and/or their uncontrolled dogs, etc take a flying leap to escape these offenders, and crash down on the concrete underpass, seriously injuring themselves, or killing them.

All native wildlife are protected, therefore, it is an offence to chase, harass, harm, kill, any native wildlife, and the offenders will be prosecuted.

The government and their departments have been warned by Wildlife Carers Group on numerous occasions, that the collars with the GPS, were unfit and invasive for Kangaroos, that have seen the Kangaroos killed on the roads, with the GPS collars causing them to lose their coordination, because of the large invasive collars, and further, the GPS equipment that is attached.

The Government departments and the Government have on numerous occasions been warned and advised by Wildlife Carers Group, to use the tiny macro GPS chips, that are inserted under the skin, and are not invasive.

The new telephone-linked GPS system will need to be a tiny macro GPS system, that will need to be fitted under the skin, otherwise, Wildlife Carers Group will need to take action to end the continued inhumane treatment of our native, protected Kangaroos.

The Kangaroo population has not boomed.

We are seeing far too much construction work, and developments in the ACT, destroying wildlife habitat, and accelerating climate change.

The Kangaroos have lost their habitat, which only gives the appearance of a Kangaroo population explosion.

The Kangaroo population has dramatically declined, with only 20 Kangaroo calls in 2010, and less in 2011.

This drastic decline is because of over culling by the ACT government, and private land owners, and unnecessary dangerous high speed roads that the government has constructed, regardless of the fact that the majority of the ACT population were opposed to any future road developments, with the same majority of the population who were also opposed to any further housing, etc developments, in order to save the Bush Capital, the native wildlife fauna and flora, wildlife habitat, and to maintain open space, to reduce the effects of climate change, wishing for a stress free living environment in our Bush Capital.

Just because people claimed that they hit Kangaroos, in order to claim insurance, does not mean that all the claimants have been honest in what they have hit.

Psychotic drivers deliberately crash into cars, parked or otherwise.

They are fully aware that what they have done is illegal, they can’t admit to deliberately crashing into a parked car, etc, so they will lie, and will say that they hit a Kangaroo, or an animal, or that an animal jumped into them, and hit them, etc. in order to claim insurance.

Yes, I speak with experience, my parked car was crashed into. How do you suppose the illegal hit and run offenders claimed their insurance.

DOG CRUELTY in BOSNIA and the ACT

A Wildlife Carers Group member sent this article and petition through to be circulated and signed.

Wildlife Carers Group has signed this petition: Dear NORA,

Thank you for signing the JUSTICE For Vucko! petition

Thank-you for signing,Rene Davis

Vucko was a German Shepherd living in Bosnia who had fireworks stuffed into his mouth, and set off. He suffered with half his face blown off, wandering the streets for 5 days, before someone found the dog, and handed him in for treatment.

The petition is for stricter laws for offences such as this, to end acts of animal cruelty.

DOG CRUELTY IN THE ACT

In the scorching 30 degree heat, on Monday 14/11/11, this dog was left on the back of a light truck, exposed to the heat, with no food and water, no shade, for hours, in the suburb of Kambah, while the owner walked around, in between mowing his lawns, and whipper snipping, throwing all the rubbish over his dog, that she repeatedly had to shake off herself.

The owner can be seen walking back to his truck, after one of his walks around the neighbourhood, while his dog is left on the back of his truck in the scorching 30 degree heat, no shade, no water, no food, with rubbish dumped on her, that he also parked dangerously on the road, before a blind bend, outside his own residence, who was also causing an obstruction, as you can see in the photo, the recycle bin has not been collected yet, and is also endangering lives, attempting to cause a crash, an injury, or a death. Cyclists would not be able to avoid on coming traffic, from the blind bend, and serious injuries and/or death.

When you see people like the above man, who is trying very hard to inhumanely kill  his dog through heat stroke, heat exhaustion, exposure, who don’t care about animals, you can be certain that they most definitely don’t care about people.

Roads authority/Australian Road Rules have failed to place priority on public safety  here.

This road needs to be marked as a Clearway.

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.

Wildlife Carers Group appreciates the opportunity in having input in Queensland’s Master Plan 2020.

We have been involved in assisting with lobbying for your extended protected marine parks, etc. and your unacceptable proposed constructions, such as at Tin Can Bay, etc, that threatened your critically endangered, etc species.

We visited Fraser Island, where the Dingo still has not been listed as a critically endangered species, when we paid a private tourist guide, who was possibly a ranger, to take us around the Island to see a Dingo. Our visit left us with no sighting of even one Dingo, please click on this link to view our report: https://wildlifecarersgroup.wordpress.com/2011/09/06/wildlife-carers-group-investigation-and-report-on-the-fraser-island-dingoes-qld-liberal-national-party-takes-action-to-protect-fraser-island-dingoes/?sn=l, and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xSSaknF6Wnw&feature=youtu.be, showing
the rangers, who are responsible for the inhumane treatment of dingoes on Fraser Island, who are starving them to death, mismanaging them, mistreating them.

Queensland rangers further did a back burn, which once again went wrong at Fraser Island, with back burns that apparently go wrong each year.

While your Draft boasts about the skilled rangers and staff in Queensland Government, clearly the above links, and below, and the fact that the public have to lobby to stop Queensland Government developments, paints a different picture of incompetence within the Queensland Government and their agencies.

Wildlife Carers Group has written several letters to the Queensland Government, with the government failing to listen to what is written, just blindly handing it over to another government department, repeating their nonsense.

If the Queensland government is going to save Queensland’s terrestrials and marine wildlife, and their habitat, then this arrogant attitude will have to be dropped, and the Queensland government will have to listen to the experts who take the time to alert the Queensland Government with the problems occurring within the Government, take action against their staff, and change their staff’s disastrous actions, and start to work with those alerting the government of the disasters occurring around them.

The Queensland government was alerted to Jenny Parkhurst’s unacceptable treatment, court action and court fine by the Queensland Rangers, over the Fraser Island Dingo incident.

The Queensland government has done absolutely nothing to rectify this problem, when the facts were, that Jenny Parkhurst did not do anything wrong, she was bullied into pleading guilty, when she complied with the animal welfare act.

This shows that the rangers were in the wrong, who breached the animal welfare act, and needed to be prosecuted and terminated from their jobs.

The Queensland government will need to withdraw their court actions against Jennifer Parkhurst, that will release her from the fines, the court findings, and allow her to return to Fraser Island, to continue her work with the dingoes. The Queensland Government will need to return the paid fine to Jennifer Parkhurst, with an apology.

The Queensland Government will need to amend their legislation on the Dingoes at Fraser Island, and their Nature Conservation Act 1992, and disallow inhumane scientific studies, eg allowing the rangers to place invasive large collars with antennas on the Dingoes, with their repeated darting of the Dingoes, and placing ear tags on the Dingoes, etc, that will need to cover all native wildlife.

The Dingoes need to be left alone by the rangers.

Full term rehabilitation of the Dingoes, and all other native wildlife that are sick, injured or orphaned on Fraser Island, and throughout Queensland.

Kangaroos and other macropods are being inhumanely treated by the Queensland government and their agencies, please click on these links to view the extreme cruelty, who are also supporting an inhumane industry, that is selling meat that is unfit for pet and human consumption, and driving our macropods to extinction: 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.

While this is an ACT report, this report will show Queensland, that they should not liaise with ACT government staff: 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.

This species maintains a healthy, well balanced eco system.

The Queensland Government must not forget that the taxpayers are paying their wages, and are not paying them and their agencies staff their wages, to wrongfully drag an innocent person to court and convict her, and ban her from her important work on researching a native animal, and to also fail to take the necessary actions against those who are employed by the government who are committing acts of animal cruelty, and are mismanaging rare full breed Dingoes, and their habitat.

Taxpayers are not paying the Queensland Government and their agencies their wages, to eliminate marine life and their habitat.

Taxpayers are not paying the Queensland Government and their agencies their wages, to commit acts of animal cruelty to macropods and other native wildlife, to eliminate them, and their habitat, to support an inhumane industry that is driving our macropods, and other native wildlife to extinction.

Abolish fishing using fishing lines, that are always carelessly discarded and are inhumanely killing marine life.

A hefty fine for anyone caught.

A hefty fine for carelessly discarded fishing nets, with a possible ban on the use of these fishing nets.

Climate change can be halted by not developing Queensland any further, by shutting down the inhumane native wildlife commercial industries, and by preventing farmers from destroying and driving our native wildlife and their habitat to extinction.

Queensland can assist the farmers to maintain our native wildlife by paying them to protect the native wildlife and their habitat on their properties.

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.

COMPLAINTS ON MISTREATMENT OF KANGAROOS, WILDLIFE RESCUE, ACT INTRODUCING CATTLE TO EAT THE GRASS, TAKING AWAY FOOD FROM OUR NATIVE WILDLIFE+ANIMAL WELFARE AND TURKEYS-bing lee’s free giveaways from Animal Lib. 18/11/11

COMPLAINTS ON MISTREATMENT OF KANGAROOS, WILDLIFE RESCUE, ACT INTRODUCING CATTLE TO EAT THE GRASS, TAKING AWAY FOOD FROM OUR NATIVE WILDLIFE+ANIMAL WELFARE AND TURKEYS-bing lee’s free giveaways from Animal Lib. 18/11/11.

Last month Wildlife Carers Group received complaints against tams continued mistreatment of Kangaroos either just needing to be rescued, or injured Kangaroos, where tams continue to fail to provide humane treatment of sick, injured, orphaned Eastern Grey Kangaroos.

Wildlife Carers Group is still fighting for the amendment of the wildlife rehabilitation licence, for full term rehabilitation for ALL sick, injured, orphaned native wildlife, that includes Eastern Grey Kangaroos, and other native wildlife that are currently omitted from the licence.

We also noted in the Canberra Times on 24/10/11, on page 8, under Editorial and Letters, a letter written by Philip Machin, Wamboin, NSW, where he writes: ……Last week we learnt that when the ACT rangers do respond – the kangaroo in Garema Place – they don’t do too well. This kangaroo was hog-tied with narrow plastic ties, dumped in a vehicle and released in the Canberra Nature Park. No attention was given to the animal’s welfare. Clearly our system is not working.

Tams and the Government have been warned more than once by Wildlife Carers Group of their inhumane treatment of wildlife, that can lead to prosecution.

Tams and the Government, who continue to abuse taxpayers money on unnecessary killing, unacceptable acts of animal cruelty, etc,  by paying and using unqualified, inexperienced staff, in the government and at the rspca, etc, and taking advice from unqualified inexperienced rspca staff, etc, with none of these agencies having any knowledge on wildlife, and who don’t care about the harmful repercussions that occur through their actions, have been warned more than once by Wildlife Carers Group, to amend the Nature Conservation Act 1980, to amend the fruadulent Kangaroo Management Plan, to amend the Draft ACT Pest Animal Management Strategy 2011-2021, accordingly, as is necessary and as instructed by Wildlife Carers Group.

Clearly the only way to resolve the governments system that is not working, is to amend Wildlife Carers Group Wildlife Rehabilitation Licence, to ensure the full term rehabilitation of ALL sick, injured, orphaned native wildlife, to amend the Nature Conservation Act 1980, to amend the fruadulent Kangaroo Management Plan, to amend the Draft ACT Pest Animal Management Strategy 2011-2021, accordingly, as is necessary and as instructed by Wildlife Carers Group.

I am not certain if tams would have released the kangaroo from Garema Place, the outcome was more likely, that they took it out the back and killed it.

To rescue uninjured kangaroos in the city, etc, if it is a large animal, tams will need to learn to dart the animals with the correct dosage, wrap it in a large blanket or 2, drive it to the nearest reserve where they rescued the animal from, leave it in the blankets but unwrap the animals, wait with it, but from a safe distance, until the animal wakes up and hops away, then retrieve their blankets.

For younger animals, joeys, tams will need pouches of different sizes to suit the different aged animals, however, they may not be released if their mother isn’t around, they will need to be handed into Wildlife Carers Group for rehabilitation, that could take upto 18 months.

As Wildlife Carers Group has also repeatedly warned tams about, is that their light trucks that they use are not suitable for rescues, they must either change their vehicles to vans, or put the canopy back on their light trucks.

Wildlife Carers Group is receiving an enormous amount of phone calls for sick, injured, orphaned native wildlife, our phone has to be recharged 2-3 times a day, we therefore ask for your patience with your calls.

Remember to leave your phone number, and repeat it at the end of your messages.

A lot of our callers forget to leave the most important thing in the message, their phone numbers, or their correct numbers.

Clearly state what the call is about, what native wildlife you are calling about, etc.

When the phone goes to voice message, we are on other calls.


FROM WILDLIFE BYTES AUSTRALIA

Wildlife Carers Group has edited their article below to correct their typo error.

“The A.C.T. Government (arguably the most disfuntional government in Australia) has placed a heavy dependence on grazing cattle as part of its bushfire management strategy in Parks and Reserves around Canberra this year. A warning from the Emergency Services Agency has stated that additional hazard reduction measures are needed to protect Canberrans this summer. ESA Commissioner Mark Crosweller predicted one of the worst fire seasons in 25 years lay ahead of ACT residents because of high fuel levels caused by last year’s wet summer. So the Government environmental agency TAMS is grazing cattle (presumably agisted, so the cattle owners pay for the privilage) and slashing to reduce fuel loads. During the last few years the ACT government has deliberately killed thousands of kangaroos in the Parks around Canberra….now they have to introduce cattle to control grasses for fire prevention! *”

IF THE ACT GOVERNMENT WOULD HAVE LISTENED TO WILDLIFE CARERS GROUP’S REPEATED WARNINGS TO LEAVE THE KANGAROOS ALONE FOR THE PAST 4 YEARS, RATHER THAN UNNECESSARILY TORTURING THEM TO DEATH, THE GRASSLANDS WOULD BE AT A CONTROLLABLE LEVEL.

THE HOOVED CATTLE WILL DESTROY THE HABITAT, KILL ALL NATIVE WILDLIFE, SUCH AS LEGLESS LIZARDS, EARLESS DRAGONS, ETC, THAT THE GOVERNMENT CLAIMED THEY WERE PROTECTING AGAINST THE SOFT FOOTED KANGAROOS.

THE TRUTH COMES OUT EVERYTIME THE GOVERNMENT OPENS THEIR MOUTH, WHO PROVE THEIR TOTAL INCOMPETENCE, BECAUSE OF THEIR FAILURE TO LIAISE WITH WILDLIFE CARERS GROUP.

THE SOFT FOOTED KANGAROOS WERE NEVER DESTROYING THE NATIVE GRASSLANDS, THE HABITAT FOR THE LEGLESS LIZARDS, EARLESS DRAGONS, ETC. OR DRIVING ANY OF THESE SPECIES TO EXTINCTION.

ALL ALONG, IT HAS BEEN THE ACT GOVERNMENT ERADICATING OUR VULNERABLE NATIVE WILDLIFE.

NATURE RESERVES, ETC, ARE FOR NATIVE WILDLIFE AND NOT FOR CATTLE OR SHEEP.

THESE UNACCEPTABLE ACTIONS OF A DYSFUNCTIONAL GOVERNMENT WILL HAVE TO END.

HAVE YOUR SAY.

FROM ANIMAL LIB

Wildlife Carers Group has sent Animal Lib’s letter, edited by Wildlife Carers Group, and we have also included a couple of extra paragraphs, as shown below, to both bing lee email addresses.

Email Bing Lee on fw@binglee.com.au
&
bc@binglee.com.au
(these are the Canberra’s managers email address of the Fyshwick and Belconnen stores).

“Letter to Bing Lee regarding the recent promotion of Ingham’s turkey

Currently ‘Bing Lee’ are promoting a free Ingham’s turkey giveaway with every fridge purchase. We are encouraging as many people as possible to write a letter to send to Bing Lee. Below is a letter you can use. There are several ways you can distribute this letter. You could:

Send it in or drop it in to the Belconnen and Fyshwick stores located in Canberra – 1/21 Barrier St Fyshwick ACT & 10-12 Cohen St Belconnen ACT.

If you are located elsewhere across Australia go online, find your nearest store and send it in. Find your nearest store at http://www.binglee.com.au/stores

Email Bing Lee on fw@binglee.com.au
&

(these are the Canberra’s managers email address of the Fyshwick and Belconnen stores).”

ATTENTION: The managers of Bing Lee.

Good afternoon,

We would like to express our concerns regarding your current promotion which offers a free Ingham’s turkey, with every fridge purchase, in an animal welfare capacity.

We are certain that after reading the unacceptable extreme acts of animal cruelty to Turkeys, in the information below, that you will forfeit your free giveaway of ingham’s turkeys, and replace your free giveaway to a material object that is suitable to the use of Fridges, such as Ice trays, egg holders, margarine holders, etc.

In Australia three to five million turkeys are killed annually. Commercially raised turkeys are reared inside crowded sheds with thousands of other birds resulting in an average space per bird no larger than an A3 sheet of paper.

As a result, turkeys grown for meat suffer a range of health and welfare problems. Turkeys develop burns on their legs and breasts, making them more susceptible to infection. Turkeys often develop wounds (due to the overcrowded conditions) which become smothered in their own waste, causing painful infections. Poor air quality can cause respiratory and eye diseases and contribute to reduced food intake, causing weight loss and lameness. Consequently, thousands of lame birds and ill birds who are unable to reach food and water will invariably die of starvation.

Another central health problem is that turkeys have been so genetically altered to grow excessively large that they suffer painful health problems such as crippled legs and feet and swollen joints and experience great difficulty in supporting their overweight bodies. They are often barely able to walk. This excessive weight also makes them susceptible to heart disease.

A further pressing welfare issue is that turkeys are subjected to artificial insemination due to the fact that male turkeys (toms) are so large that they are unable to mate naturally. Instead, male turkeys are ‘milked’. A worker restrains him in a bent-over position then grabs the turkey’s penis, stroking and masturbating until the tom ejaculates. The milked semen is collected, laced with extenders and antibiotics, and injected via syringe into the female turkey.

The life cycle of a turkey raised for commercial purposes is a fast and furious three months of suffering which ends in slaughter. This industrial-scale cruelty does our society, and the institutions and organisations that condone it, no credit at all.

As consumers and customers we would like to express our concerns with your frequent advertising of a product that is cruelly produced, and request that you change the ‘free give-away’ of the frozen dead body of an animal, to something that does not involve such cruelty and violence. We will not be shopping at Bing Lee in any capacity whilst this is occurring and will also be telling others to boycott Bing Lee nationwide.


We look forward to receiving your earliest response, attention, and action to cease advertising and supporting this inhumane industry.

Sincerely,

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.

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.

Sea Shepherd strongly opposes the West Australian government’s call for a shark cull following shark attacks in the state. The organisation’s Australia director Jeff Hansen explains why.
The West Australian government has unfortunately given a green light to hunt for a shark that killed a man in the waters off Rottnest Island on October 22.

TAMS ABUSING TAXPAYERS MONEY ON KANGAROOS + WILDLIFE CARERS GROUP AT DOMESTIC ANIMALS SERVICES ASSISTS IN SAVING A DOG WITH A MEMBER OF THE PUBLIC

TAMS ABUSING TAXPAYERS MONEY ON KANGAROOS + DAS DOG

The act government and tams have repeatedly abused taxpayers money, firstly on unnecessarily butchering our native Eastern Grey Kangaroos, based on a fraudulent kangaroo management plan that is not based on any scientific evidence, and refusing to amend the plan as instructed by experts.

Now we find that tams have burnt taxpayers money on fighting an acat court case for 2 years with NSW wildcare, who finally won an acat 2 year battle with tams to take 35 Eastern Grey Joeys from Canberra to NSW, when all tams had to do, in order to save taxpayers money, was to immediately amend WILDLIFE CARERS GROUP’s Wildlife Rehabilitation licence, as required and as has been repeatedly instructed by WILDLIFE CARERS GROUP.

This action to amend our licence will also save the stress on the joeys, on being unnecessarily transported, and leave them int he ACT where they belong, will not be limited to only joeys, and may prevent euthanasia on all of them, because of wildcare’s limited resources, giving full term rehabilitation to ALL sick, injured and orphaned animals

Canberra Times article: “A Queanbeyan wildlife rescue group has won the right to take orphaned joeys across the NSW border, sparing them from death at the hands of ACT authorities. After a legal stoush spanning three years Wildcare Queanbeyan has secured a three-year licence to transport eastern grey joeys from the ACT to their sanctuary in the border town. The group and the ACT Conservator of Flora and Fauna agreed on licence terms in the ACT Civil and Administrative Tribunal on Friday after the tribunal ruled in favour of Wildcare last month. The decision by general president Linda Crebbin and senior member Allan Anforth means Wildcare can drive up to 35 orphaned kangaroos over the border for three years. The ACT’s policy is to humanely kill orphaned joeys.

In 2008 the conservator refused to grant Wildcare a new licence to take joeys to NSW, raise them and release them back into the wild. Tribunal senior member Brian Hatch backed up the Government’s decision in September 2009, but was ultimately overruled on appeal by his colleagues. A spokesman for the group and president of Wildlife Advocates, Guy Wilmington, said Wildcare were always confident the decision would go their way. ”It’s definitely welcome to have this over and done with and to have our arguments vindicated by ACAT,” he said. Lawyers for the Government raised concerns released kangaroos might return to the territory and, because of their contact with human carers, become traffic hazards or potentially violent towards humans. They also argued the Wildcare’s policy might cause the joeys undue suffering in the last days of their lives.

When Wildcare previously had a licence on a trial basis at least 14 of the 32 joeys taken into their care died or were euthanased. In their written reasons for the decision, Ms Crebbin and Mr Anforth described the question as difficult. ”Is it better for 35 joeys per year to die quickly, than for about half to survive and prosper and half to experience non-specific suffering and deterioration leading to death,” the tribunal members wrote. But they found no evidence to support arguments about the animals posing a threat to humans, or concerns about the suffering of relocated joeys.The licence will be granted with strict conditions covering transport, records and reporting. A spokesman for the Territory and Municipal Services Directorate said the Government would not appeal the tribunal’s decision.”

WILDLIFE CARERS GROUP TAKES MEMBER OF PUBLIC TO DOG POUND (DAS)

On 3/11/11 Wildlife Carers Group’s Founding President NORA PRESTON, drove a member of the public to das (domestic animal services in the ACT) to save a dog.

The member of the public has put over $70 on this pictured dog, who will be notified on 10/11/11, on whether or not the owner has responded.

The pictured dog is microchipped, and is a female dog.

Apparently The owners are not replying to das’s calls.

Photo taken by NORA PRESTON.

If this is your dog, please phone das on 6207 2424.

We have concerns that das is now ordering everyone to take undesexed dogs to the rspca for desexing.

This is clearly putting local vets out of business, giving all business to the rspca.

Das needs to give a discount voucher, allowing the public to choose which vet they go to, as some vets are cheaper than others.

Unfortunately we have also found the after hours pens still are not secured with strong padlocks.

This needs to be urgently rectified, for the protection of all dogs placed in the pens, to prevent other dogs being placed in the same pens and seriously injured or killed.

The large bucket of water still has not been replaced with a smaller bowl for the smaller dogs to be able to reach to drink out of, which also needs to be urgently rectified.

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

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.

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.

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.
