UNLAWFUL ENTRY AND STEALING OF WILDLIFE; LETTERS SENT TO CANBERRA TIMES BUT NOT PUBLISHED 28/8/12

UNLAWFUL ENTRY AND STEALING OF WILDLIFE; LETTERS SENT TO CANBERRA TIMES IN MY DEFENCE BUT NOT PUBLISHED 28/8/12.

I demanded a public apology by the Canberra Times with letters sent in my defence to them to be published in Saturday’s paper, to attract the same readers who read the defamatory lies about me on Saturday 11/8/12, so that they can read the truth.

I asked the CT editor’s office why would they give tams and the rspca the satisfaction in printing such defamatory lies about me and assist them in destroying my reputation, and that in her heart, she knew that I did not commit any acts of animal cruelty, and that they did not have to print anything at all. She refused to put me through to the editor and told me to send another letter.

I have sent several emails since and still have not had a response back from the editor with a public apology.  The Canberra Times could get involved and demand a public apology to me by the government, the rspca and demand that my stolen wildlife be returned to me alive.

Due to the ongoing incompetence of tams in their handling of sending out wildlife rehabilitation licence renewal applications, and then the sending out of record books, and the defamatory lies about me sent out in letters to Wildlife Carers Group carers in 2008, Wildlife Carers Group has requested a Public Apology with the confession of departmental error, our licence to be a special licence for our independent group, with the instructions/conditions of an open licence that does not expire, no record keeping for tams, full term rehabilitation of ALL sick, injured, orphaned native wildlife, no carers list to tams, and wildlife inspections undertaken by Wildlife Carers Group.

Due to the ongoing annual acts of animal cruelty INCLUDING 30+ other permits handed out all year round to kill protected native kangaroos and other protected native wildlife, committed by tams and their shooters under the rspca, Wildlife Carers Group has further requested that all applications for native Wildlife killing licences and Wildlife Rehabilitation Licences to be processed by Wildlife Carers Group.

All native Wildlife are protected, with the Wildlife protection laws constantly breached under this government and the rspca.

Wildlife Carers Group is the only ACT body that enforces the Wildlife protection laws, and prevent protected native wildlife from being killed.

I have written several emails and I am demanding a public apology for the unlawful entry and stealing of my wildlife on 10/8/12, defamation, and vicious harassment by the police, tams and the rspca to the chief/tams minister, and to the police requesting that they charge, arrest and prosecute the rspca and tams, including the police involved, for their unlawful entry and unlawful stealing of my wildlife, vicious harassment and defamation, and the immediate return of my stolen wildlife alive.

We demand that all of these offenders are terminated from their jobs as well.

I am further demanding a compensation payout for all of the ongoing vicious harassment, unlawful entry and stealing of my wildlife and the ongoing defamatory lies going on about me.

To read this article that refutes everything that the recent Canberra Times article false allegations claim on 11/8/12, and unlawful action of illegal trespassing and stealing of animals taken against me by the tams dept, the rspca and the police on 10/8/12, because I took the conservator of flora and fauna to court to stop the unlawful violent killing of the kangaroos and to make the required changes to the Nature Conservation Act 1980, The Kangaroo Management Plan that is full of science fiction and no scientific evidence of their claims made against the Kangaroos of damage, destroying endangered species that is caused by the government, hoofed cattle, quad bikes, digging pits, 4WD’s, shooters, and the Pests Control Management Plan Strategy that needs to have all native wildlife omitted from the Plan, please click on this link: http://www.canberratimes.com.au/act-news/canberra-city-of-animal-lovers-20120714-222rk.html

We urgently require your assistance to expose these unlawful acts and abuse of taxpayers money and their positions in their jobs by the rspca and government and their government dept, along with your assistance to give back my wildlife if they are still alive, and to help deal with the rspca as well, and possibly the police since they also abused taxpayers money on this unlawful action while the real criminals continue to reoffend.

I requested the police to take action and to stop the unlawful violent killing of the Kangaroos in May 2012, sent them visual photographic evidence of the violent unlawful killing, however the police refused to stop the labor government and government dept.

I further requested that the police investigate, arrest, charge and prosecute all the offenders responsible for and for killing violently and unlawfully, but it appears that the police have refused to do so, instead, abusing taxpayers money to unlawfully raid innocent well know and respected registered wildlife carers property for taking the government to court for animal cruelty.

On Friday 10/8/12 my property was unlawfully entered into by the police, tams licensing compliance officer Rod Carnall, and the rspca, who ignored my warnings to leave my property since they do not have my permission to enter my property and under the Human Rights Act, they have to have my permission.

They were also ordered to leave my protected wildlife on my property under my long term expertise and knowledge in care, and that the rspca kill everything.

All native wildlife are protected, but only by me and my Wildlife Carers Group, and not by the rspca and government dept tams who unlawfully kill, unlawfully violently kill.

Wildlife Carers Group is the only group that enforces the wildlife protection laws. It is unlawful to kill protected native wildlife.

This action was to stop me from pursuing legal action against the Conservator of Flora and Fauna for the violent unlawful killing of Kangaroos in May/June 2012, and because I had already commenced legal action against the Conservator of Flora and Fauna on 22 May 2012, on the day the unlawful violent killings commenced.

Vicious harassment and defamation has never stopped by both the rspca and tams staff against me and my group attempting to destroy my hard earned and well respected reputation, so that they can continue to lie about wildlife and continue to unlawfully and violently kill protected native wildlife without being exposed for their lies and animal cruelty by me.

My long term expertise stems from being Senior Vice President for the Wildlife Foundation in the early 1980’s, a committee member on COG and a very active member identifying birds, field trips etc, and a licensed bird bander with National Parks and Wildlife, field trips, setting up nets, trapping and removing from traps, and writing up records for weight, sex, identity, etc, and then releasing the birds. I had this bird banding practice introduced into the Wildlife Foundation so that we can monitor the rehabilitated birds and record what were successful release sites and what were not successful release sites, were they released too soon, etc. I was also Vice President of Wildlife Oolong Sanctuary for a number of years.

I will copy and paste my response to the Canberra Times article on Saturday 11/8/12 that I sent to the CT later that evening, below the articles that someone else sent to the Canberra Times, and to the rpsca. I have further phoned the Canberra Times requesting to speak to the editor and demand a retraction and an apology. I was told that Jack would ring me back but the editor still has not phoned back.

I have been given till Tuesday 21/8/12 to make an appointment with Rod Carnall to discuss what they did to me, although he has something else on his agenda with this interview.

At no time while they were on my property was animal welfare or the animal welfare act mentioned to me.

I read that false allegation made against me in the Canberra Times after they rang me to let me know that they had just found out about the raid on my property, unfortunately the Canberra Times did not print all the facts that I told them, so you can imagine my shock to read about the animal cruelty allegations made against me by the rspca, and the fact that they printed it and exposed my name and address which I have kept private for obvious reasons.

As I investigate animal welfare matters I get threatened and abused, the Canberra Times is well aware of that, and yet exposed where I live in their article, a breach of the Privacy Act, and endangering my safety.

It appears that all of this commenced against me just 2 days after the Canberra Times wrote a full page article on me in the Sunday Canberra Times on 15/7/12, that both the rspca and tams felt would strengthen my legal actions against the rspca and tams for animal cruelty etc, and to have the necessary changes made to the Nature Conservation Act, the Kangaroo Management Plan and the Pests Control Management Strategy that would ensure that the killing stopped against protected native wildlife and our Wildlife Rehabilitation Licence would provide full term rehabilitation for all the omitted sick, injured, orphaned protected native wildlife, with an exemption to Wildlife Carers Group to keep records for tams, with an open licence, to allow us to do what we do best, with no expiry date, providing full term rehabilitation to all native sick, injured, orphaned wildlife, and that would allow us to take over all the native wildlife killing applications and wildlife rehabilitation licence applications.

Wildlife Carers Group will also need to take over all the inspections.

With the rspca having absolutely no knowledge and expertise in wildlife that we have, the rspca will need to immediately lose their wildlife rehabilitation licence, and their full government funding, since you have already seen how the rspca abuse their taxpayer funding and their donations, to run smear campaigns.

In all of my over 30 years of working with animals, I have never in my life been accused of animal cruelty, nor have I ever been guilty of committing acts of animals cruelty, I have been fiercely working hard to end acts of animal cruelty by the government, the government departments and the rspca, and have educated and given advice towards ending these crimes.

I have been the most successful wildlife carer working from my backyard since the early 1980’s, to this current day.

If you need any further information, please don’t hesitate to reply to this email.

Your urgent response and action and assistance is required to order that my wildlife be IMMEDIATELY returned to ME alive and unharmed, and a public apology.

Letters sent to Canberra Times by others. I have removed their names and addresses from the copies.

We need to stop the rspca and tams bullying, defamation and vicious harassment of expert wildlife carers, in the attempt to gag us, we pay their wages, we have rights to expose the animal cruelty, etc and to try and stop it, by the government and the rspca without being viciously harassed and defamed with lies. Please write letters to the Chief Minister, Tams Minister Katy Gallagher, gallagher@act.gov.au , GreensPartyCaroline LeCouteur, lecouteur@parliament.act.gov.au , Police/Environment minister Simon Corbell, corbell@act.gov.au , Opposition leader Zed Seselja, zed.seselja@parliament.act.gov.au , Tony Abbott, tony.abbott.mp@aph.gov.au , and demand that Wildlife Carers Group wildlife be immediately returned to me, with a public apology, and to take action against the rspca, tams licensing compliance officer Rod Carnell, and certain police officers for their unlawful entry and unlawful seizure of protected native wildlife from Wildlife Carers Group and for their acts of animal cruelty to the wildlife that they seized from my premises.

We are running another petition to stop the unlawful violent killing of the Eastern Grey Kangaroos, please sign as individuals, and circulate, post onto your websites, etc:

The editor
The Canberra Times

Your story ‘Wildlife carer could face charges after sick birds seized’ (Canberra Times, 11 August 2012) raises several questions.

It appears that the ACT Government and RSPCA forcibly entered a private property, the reason being that the birds in the care of Ms Nora Preston on behalf of the Wildlife Carers Group were not exempt from the TAMS licensing provisions, or, that they were sick and needed immediate veterinary care.

After entering the property and identifying the birds, the inspectors should have realised they were on the TAMS exempt list and that Ms Preston had the right to keep them. However, the inspectors removed the birds, regardless. Apparently the inspectors had decided, without any verifying evidence or without the presence of a vet, that the birds were sick. Why didn’t the raiding party take a vet with them to examine the birds on site and spare them a traumatic chase and capture which would certainly be enough to make them sick?

Where is the chain of independent evidence? Michael Linke, the RSPCA’s Chief Executive officer, who is a qualified accountant, seized the birds so his vets could examine them and predictably find that they were sick enough to warrant his intervention for whatever reason. If the RSPCA vets had found that the birds were sick, how would they know that the birds weren’t suffering from their most recent capture, or from problems that the Wildlife Carers Group was currently addressing, or both?

The most relevant question is: does this raid have anything to do with the recent case where Ms Preston took the ACT Government to court in an attempt to stem its slaughter of kangaroos?

It is reprehensible for a respected organisation like the RSPCA gets into bed with the ACT Government in a foray which suspiciously looks like retaliation and harassment. Perhaps the perpetrators of this precipitous action need to look at the ACT Criminal Code, the Human Rights Act, the Animal Welfare Act, TAMS licensing regulations and so on before they plan their next raid. In the meantime, anyone keeping a exempt bird that looks a little pale should expect the raiders of the lost cause to strike at any time without warning which is apparently what they did to Ms Preston.
_____________________________________________________________________________________

This is to the Canberra Times…

I have noted that animal welfare agencies other than the RSPCA do their utmost to rehome animals whereas the RSPCA does what is expedient (which means you often put animals down when there is no necessity to do so). This also includes your part in the slaughter of the Kangaroos around Canberra recently.

The RSPCA does this because they are not an independent agency as they receive government funding.

Therefore the RSPCA has to toe the government line!

Hence the recent SLAUGHTER of innocent kangaroos which was completely unnecessary as other viable options had been put forward.

My mother, who has been a regular donor in the past will no longer donate to the RSPCA. Rather, her support will now go to independent organisations and wildlife rescue organisations.

I am appalled at the recent treatment of a wildlife rescuer/carer in the ACT (Nora Preston). What happened amounted to unlawful entry, defamation and vicious harassment of this person.

This so obviously smacks of retribution in relation to her actions to take the ACT government to court to stem the SLAUGHTER of kangaroos by the ACT government. The RSPCA is doing the government’s dirty work for them.

Again, this is evidence of the RSPCA toeing the line to guarantee their Government funding. Shame, shame, shame!

I must say, I am disgusted!

________________________________________________________________________________

My Letter to the Canberra Times, to which I received no response, with neither of the letters in my defence printed by the Canberra Times stating the real facts:


I’m not sure who ran to the media with this information, I wouldn’t mind feedback on this.

DEFAMATION AND VICIOUS HARASSMENT

I would like to know what the rspca defines as animal cruelty.

The birds were with me for under 24 hours.

I did not rip any of their wings off while they were alive trying to torture them to death, nor did I attempt to bash them to death or in any way try to mutilate them or harm them in any way as the rspca did when they were aggressively and inhumanely dragging them out from their housing that they had settled into.

All the local cockatoos came flying in to the rescue, responding to the cockatoos alarming calls to them as they were being ripped out of their comfortable housing on my property by the rspca.

All the birds were in excellent health, and I say ‘were’, since I suspect that the rspca did what they do best, and that is to kill them and to deny them the right to life.

If by some miracle the birds are still alive, then they soon will be dead or quite sick through mishandling, poor housing, and no knowledge of wildlife by the rspca on how to handle, house and treat them.

Wildlife Carers Group always provide veterinary treatment to our wildlife that are handed in to us.

My expertise and knowledge in wildlife rehabilitation far outweighs that of the rspca staff, since I commenced rehabilitating wildlife in the early 1980’s and furthermore I was the most successful carer around at the time, that has continued to this date.

Animal Welfare is also my top priority.

The rspca have shown it is of their lowest priority by failing to seize a dog cruelty case that I reported to them, with the dog thrown on the back of the open truck in 30 degree heat last year and left there without food and water, and again this year, with the same dog left on the back of the same open truck uncontrolled parked dangerously on the road full of blind bends, with no food and water, that the rspca saw, agreed that the dog was underweight, and refused to seize the dog. This dog offender now has 2 dogs to abuse and to kick out uncontrolled into the streets because of the rspca failing to seize the dog and ban this owner from owning any further pets.

We have learnt that we can never believe anything that the rspca says. They fabricate their animal numbers to ensure that they get their government grant, etc.

This unlawful action made against me by tams with the rspca and the police was a personal vendetta purely to get back at me for taking the Conservator of Flora and Fauna to ACAT on 22 May 2012 to try and stop the unlawful violent killing of the Kangaroos, and for fighting for the necessary changes to the Nature Conservation Act, the Kangaroo Management Plan, and the Pest Control Management Strategy, to once and for all put an end to the false allegations, unnecessary killing and abuse that our native wildlife undergo under the rspca and tams.

Please note, that I had to dip into my own pocket and take the Conservator of Flora and Fauna to ACAT to stop the unlawful violent killing of the Kangaroos, that is Wildlife
Carers Group’s definition of animal cruelty. The rspca, with all of their government funding and donations have taken absolutely no action against TAMS for their acts of animal cruelty.

I phoned Rod Carnell after he left my property, and asked him to read out the wildlife that are on the exempt list to me.

We will find that the unlawfully seized birds from my property are on this exempt list that

Rod refused to read out to me on the phone.

The police, rspca and Rod Carnell unawfully entered my property without my knowledge, without sending me a letter first to make enquiries on what he was alleging.

When I ordered them off my property under the Human Rights Act, they refused to leave.

They did not have my permission to be on my property, to viciously harass me, to seize any protected native wildlife from me, and then to go away and defame me with their false allegations and go to the media with them.

This is more abuse of taxpayers money and abuse of their positions that they hold, first by spending over $200,000 for violent unlawful killing of the kangaroos, that the final poll showed the majority of 56% of the population opposed, with the government and government dept TAMS only having a small minority of 39% supporting their unnecessary violence, second, by unlawfully entering my property and removing protected native wildlife that were only safe and protected, receiving proper care and treatment in my care.

I ordered Rod to order the rspca to immediately return the wildlife they unlawfully took from my property, if they are still alive.

The protected native wildlife still have not been returned.

The licence issue is departmental error, and not my error for which they have received hundreds of emails to resolve it.

If the rspca and tams authority with animals/wildlife is not removed from them, the animal cruelty will continue under them, the animals will continue to be killed, and we will have no animals left.

Dear Mr Linke

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

SEE the 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.

We can see their marine life up and down the Qld coast, however, the only unique sighting that Fraser Island can boast about, and can offer to the tourists, is the pure breed native Dingoes, once the last 90 odd Dingoes, population estimation as of 28-29 August 2011, (since the mismanaged Fraser Island fire by the Qld government, this Dingo population has more than likely dropped dramatically), 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.

CHIEF MINISTER DEMANDS PUBLIC APOLOGY, SO DID I; SMEAR CAMPAIGNS RUN BY TAMS; ANOTHER LETTER TO THE RSPCA FOR WILDLIFE CARER DEFAMATORY LIES

CHIEF MINISTER DEMANDS A PUBLIC APOLOGY, SO DID I. SMEAR CAMPAIGNS BY TAMS. ANOTHER LETTER TO THE RSPCA.

CHIEF MINISTER DEMANDS A PUBLIC APOLOGY, SO DID I BUT STILL HAVEN’T GOT IT

We recently saw the Chief Minister demand a public apology on TV News last week.

Wildlife Carers Group demanded a public apology and the immediate return of our Wildlife alive, that were paid for out of our own pocket for phone calls, responding/returning calls, rescue, treatment and proper care, for the unlawful entry and acts of animal cruelty during the unlawful stealing of Wildlife Carers Group Wildlife on Friday 10/8/12 by the rspca and tams and the police who allowed the rspca to unlawfully trespass onto my propery, and for unlawfully stealing my Wildlife that were under my proper care.

The chief/tams minister receptionist bluntly told me that she was not going to give it to me, and refused to let me speak with the chief/tams minister to sort this mess out.

I have written several emails, made several phone calls, and I am demanding a public apology for the unlawful entry and stealing of my wildlife on 10/8/12, defamation, and vicious harassment by the police, tams and the rspca to the chief/tams minister, and to the police requesting that they charge, arrest and prosecute the rspca and tams, including the police involved, for their unlawful entry and unlawful stealing of my wildlife, ongoing vicious harassment and defamatory lies, and demand the immediate return of my unlawfully stolen wildlife alive.

I am further demanding a compensation payout for all of the ongoing vicious harassment, unlawful entry and unlawful stealing of my wildlife, and the ongoing defamatory lies going on about me.

Our wildlife are not there for the rspca to profit on by selling them, or to unnecessarily kill them because they do not have any understanding, knowledge or expertise in wildlife.

Unreleasable healthy wildlife need to be kept to be able to calm down other new incoming species, of the same species.

The sick need to be treated and if unreleasable can also be kept for the same purposes.

Unreleasable healthy wildlife are also needed in educating the public who are being trained in wildlife rehabilitation, and for the requested talks given.

Due to the ongoing incompetence of tams in their handling of sending out wildlife rehabilitation licence renewal applications, and the sending out of record books, and the defamatory lies about me sent out in letters to Wildlife Carers Group carers in 2008, Wildlife Carers Group has been requesting a public apology for years, and is still requesting a Public Apology with the confession of departmental error, our licence to be a special conditional licence for our independent group, with the instructions/conditions of an open licence that does not expire, no record keeping for tams, full term rehabilitation of ALL sick, injured, orphaned native wildlife, no carers list to tams, and wildlife inspections undertaken by Wildlife Carers Group.

Due to the ongoing annual acts of animal cruelty committed by tams and their shooters under the rspca, and the 30+ other permits handed out to kill protected native kangaroos, etc, all year round, Wildlife Carers Group has further requested that all applications for native Wildlife killing licences and Wildlife Rehabilitation Licences to be processed by Wildlife Carers Group.

All native Wildlife are protected, with the Wildlife protection laws constantly breached under this government and the rspca.

Wildlife Carers Group is the only ACT body that enforces the Wildlife protection laws and disallows protected native wildlife to be killed.

SMEAR CAMPAIGNS RUN BY TAMS

Just as my name was defamed with lies and vicious harassment, unlawful entry into my property and the unlawful stealing of my wildlife by the police, the rspca and tams with the intention to run a smear campaign against me for taking the conservator of flora and fauna to court for animal cruelty and the ongoing unlawful violent killing of protected native wildlife, the activists also had a smear campaign run against them by tams for exposing their animal cruelty, during tams unlawful annual violent killing of protected native wildlife during May and June 2012 on the nature reserves, and outside the reserves, with both actions against me and the activists being paid by the taxpayers, taxpayers money abused, and those responsible for these unlawful actions abusing their jobs.

The activists were accused of cutting the fences where the Eastern Bettongs were released, endangering their lives.

Our informant has advised us, that at no time were the Eastern Bettongs in danger of escaping or having predators get into the enclosure where they were kept, since at no time were those particular fences cut.

Instead, the fences cut were in another area where the Eastern Bettongs had no access to.

As a result of this smear campaign and defamatory lies about the activists, the ACT Animal Liberation President wrote a letter to the Chief Minister warning her of defamation.

I have written several emails demanding a public apology for the unlawful entry and stealing of my wildlife on 10/8/12, defamation, and vicious harassment by the police, tams and the rspca to the chief/tams minister, and to the police requesting that they charge, arrest and prosecute the rspca and tams, including the police involved, for their unlawful entry and unlawful stealing of my wildlife, vicious harassment and defamation.

In order to run this smear campaign against the activists, tams would have been responsible in cutting the fences, not only unlawfully costing the taxpayers over $200,000 for the unlawful killing of protected wildlife, torturing them to death, when the final poll results showing that the majority of 56% opposed the killing, with only a small minority of 39% agreeing with the unlawful killing, tams government cost the taxpayers a further $5000 to repair their own damage that they caused to the fences.

Then you can add on the damage caused in the nature reserves by placing hoofed cattle into the nature reserves, completely misusing and abusing the word ‘nature’ reserves, that is intended for native wildlife and not introduced sheep or cattle, digging of pits, riding around on quad bikes, driving around in 4WD’s.

Further add on the cost to taxpayers to unlawfully trespass onto my property and to unlawfully steal my protected native wildlife by the police, tams and the rspca.

Your guess is as good as mine of the huge cost that these incompetent government departments cost the public because of arrogance and ignorance, and refusing to work with experts, incompetent government departments who never bother looking into the future on what their actions are going to cost our environment, our eco system, our native wildlife flora and fauna, and most of all, the taxpayers, because they are too busy running smear campaigns, at your cost.

Another letter sent to the rspca for the unlawful entry and stealing of my wildlife on 10/8/12 and the defamatory lies about me that appeared in the Canberra Times on 11/8/12.

I have removed their name and email address for their privacy, and I would like to make a correction to ‘….the rspca officer…’, para 2.  There were more than 1 rspca staff members unlawfully trespassing.  I ordered everyone off my property, and ordered everyone to leave my protected wildlife alone and where they were housed, that they all ignored.

Dear Mr Linke,

According to the Canberra Times report, the RSPCA was involved in the raid on Nora Preston’s house to remove birds she had there. I presume you would have entered under the Animal Welfare Act 1992. This being the case, according to Ms Preston, it seems that you and your officers are not aware of the requirements of section 81 ‘Powers of entry and search’.

When she became aware that the RSPCA officer was there, she asked him or her to leave, which was ignored. Would you not agree that this is an act of trespass and the removal of the birds, which were exempt from licence requirements, theft and conversion?

I am surprised that the RSPCA would involve itself in such a precipitous action in tandem with the TAMS wildlife Officer who also appears to be rather ignorant of the requirements of the law, namely the Nature Conservation Act.

Ms Preston has had over 30 years of experience in animal care and behaviour. The RSPCA needs to work with the experts in wildlife care, instead of defaming and attacking them. The Canberra Times report made your actions sound like a turf war and perhaps it is.

Next time you bed down with the Government, particularly TAMS, you should ensure that the bureaucrats actually know what they are doing and that they have sufficient justification. The fact that you receive Government money suggests that you will side with the Government and do what it wants instead of being concerned with animal welfare..

……

To read this article that refutes everything that the recent Canberra Times article false allegations claim on 11/8/12, and unlawful action of illegal trespassing and stealing of animals taken against me by the tams dept, the rspca and the police on 10/8/12, because I took the conservator of flora and fauna to court to stop the unlawful violent killing of the kangaroos and to make the required changes to the Nature Conservation Act 1980, The Kangaroo Management Plan that is full of science fiction and no scientific evidence of their claims made against the Kangaroos of damage, destroying endangered species that is caused by the government, hoofed cattle, quad bikes, digging pits, 4WD’s, shooters, and the Pests Control Management Plan Strategy that needs to have all native wildlife omitted from the Plan, please click on this link: http://www.canberratimes.com.au/act-news/canberra-city-of-animal-lovers-20120714-222rk.html

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

SEE the 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.

RSPCA LOSES DONATIONS OVER WILDLIFE CARER DEFAMATORY LIES & UNLAWFUL RAID & STEALING OF WILDLIFE; LICENCE; UNLAWFUL ENTRY AND STEALING OF PROTECTED NATIVE WILDLIFE 28/8/12

To read this article that refutes everything that the recent Canberra Times article false allegations claim on 11/8/12, and unlawful action of illegal trespassing and stealing of animals taken against me by the tams dept, the rspca and the police on 10/8/12, because I took the conservator of flora and fauna to court to stop the unlawful violent killing of the kangaroos and to make the required changes to the Nature Conservation Act 1980, The Kangaroo Management Plan that is full of science fiction and no scientific evidence of their claims made against the Kangaroos of damage, destroying endangered species that is caused by the government, hoofed cattle, quad bikes, digging pits, 4WD’s, shooters, and the Pests Control Management Plan Strategy that needs to have all native wildlife omitted from the Plan, please click on this link: http://www.canberratimes.com.au/act-news/canberra-city-of-animal-lovers-20120714-222rk.html

Here is the response back from the person to the rspca, and the rspca response to the email someone sent to him all shown below.

I have removed names and email addresses for their privacy.

The rspca are doing their best to get rid of the competition, and if they see us as competition, then the rspca are not at all about the animals/wildlife, and their welfare, and for their protection, and for their rights to survive, instead they are just about profiteering, making money out of the animals, because our vulnerable abused animals/wildlife need all the help and protection they can get.

If the rspca can’t see that, and they have made it perfectly clear and obvious that they can’t see that, don’t want to see that, and simply don’t care about the animals/wildlife, then the only option is to shut down the rspca for the abused animals/wildlife sake, to prevent the ongoing abuse of animals/wildlife under the rspca.

If they placed top priority over the animals and their welfare, they would be working with me and our group rather than repeatedly defaming me and this group and trying to have us shut down.

Instead the rspca see the rspca as a huge profit making business, with our expertise, against their non existing expertise and knowledge of wildlife/animals, they see us as threatening their very existence, and we will drive the rspca to extinction before they drive our animals/wildlife to extinction.

From the moment I applied for the Wildlife Carers Group Wildlife Rehabilitation Licence, even before the licence was issued to us, the rspca sent out letters slandering our names to everyone, trying to prevent us from having our licence issued.  This is how your taxpayers money and donations are being spent by the rspca, and not on preventing animal cruelty, saving and protecting animals/wildlife.

The rspca failed.

Wildlife Carers Group finally got our licence, but not after I had to continue to fight for it.

It took a long 8 months for us to get our licence.

After we got our licence, all the rspca members wanted to join Wildlife Carers Group as well.

The rspca were at it again, bullying and dictating to all rspca members, ordering them with threats that they were not allowed to be members of both groups, taking away their freedom of choice, which is unlawful.

The facts are, that the rspca members have the right to be members of as many groups as they want, and have the right to rehabilitate with as many groups as they want to.

There is absolutely nothing that the rspca can do about it.

The rspca were responsible for attempting to sabotage Wildlife Carers Group monthly training courses by bullying our speakers that left me to have to present the Training Courses myself at the very last minute.

It got to the stage where I was forced to stop inviting guest speakers.

I give talks, I train work experience students for 5 days solid at a time, I do online training, none of which brings in the money that the monthly training courses did, even though we only charged a small minimal fee for entry, compared to what the rspca charge.  Once again, for the rspca, it is all about making money and abusing their title as an animal organisation.

I attend a lot of meetings, workshops, forums and amend policies relevant to the well being and survival of protected native wildlife, to prevent animal cruelty and native wildlife from being driven to extinction, to stop the lies sent out by those who claim that they are experts but who actually do not have any expertise or knowledge in this field.

The rspca were responsible for sabotaging every good thing I tried to do for this group, with their ongoing interference and in trying to out do this group from when I requested sponsorship for a wildlife ambulance, when the rspca  jumped in and requested the same, got the ambulance, just to let it sit in the carpark, and so on.

The rspca and tams continued to falsely advertise that the rspca were the only wildlife rehabilitation group in the ACT, from the minute our Wildlife Rehab. Licence was issued.

The rspca have not stopped to attempt to destroy this reputable group, full of long term knowledge, expertise and understanding in wildlife and animals care and their behaviour, through the rspca’s constant defamatory lies.

The facts about the rspca are, if they can’t make money out of it, they kill it, unlawfully profiteering out of animals and wildlife, if they have a personality clash with the animal, they kill it, if they don’t like the animal, they will kill it and heaven help our native wildlife, they will have them removed from the Wildlife Rehabilitation Licence, run like a typical government department, that will occur if Wildlife Carers Group and myself is not here to stop them.

The rspca do not want any competition, the rspca do not want experts pulling them up and into line, and exposing their inadequacies in the attempt to improve their knowledge and expertise.

TAMS do not want any experts exposing them either, they want to continue to mislead the public about Kangaroos and other native wildlife, continue to torture animas to death, that the rspca allows them to do.

TAMS began defaming me in 2008 when they were responsible for departmental error by failing to send me the wildlife rehabilitation renewal application and record books to renew our licence, and then unlawfully wrote to all our carers discrediting my name by claiming that they had not renewed the licence because they were still waiting for me to send in the records, instead of writing the truth to the carers, that it was departmental error, and that they still haven’t sent me the renewal application for the licence and the record books, and therefore the licence is still in tact.

Thankfully tams only had the carers list and not the full membership list. Since then tams no longer receives our new carers list.

Neither Wildlife Carers Group nor myself can be held responsible, accountable or liable for departmental error, therefore we do hold a licence to rehabilitate wildlife.

The rspca are all about making money and running a profitable business, and are not at all about the animals welfare, their rights and their survival.

Wildlife rehabilitation is not just about rehabilitating, you must know and understand their habitat, and true conservation, not the lies about conservation you hear and the misleading training government dept staff receive in the ACT, you must have knowledge of the factual environment, the factual eco system, to understand native wildlife and to understand that ALL native wildlife are important in order to maintain a healthy well balanced eco system.

The rspca attempted to have native currawongs and possums removed from the Wildlife Rehabilitation Licence, because they simply do not like them, and because of their ignorance and arrogance in native wildlife.

I stopped them from removing them from the licence.

Neither the rspca nor tams had absolutely any understanding of the fact that native Eastern Grey Kangaroos were native to the ACT.

For years the rspca operated under a tams Wildlife Rehabilitation Licence that FALSELY claimed they could not have full term rehabilitation because they were not native to the ACT.

In 2005, IT TOOK MY EXPERTISE AND KNOWLEDGE IN NATIVE WILDLIFE to have the licence changed to state truthfully that Eastern Grey Kangaroos were indeed native to the ACT, immediately upon the issuing of our licence.

With this type of attitude by the rspca, who fail to put the animals/wildlife first, always in competition with everyone else, animals tortured to death by the government and their shooters while the rspca do nothing to take legal action against the government responsible, and who have the audacity to abuse taxpayers money and your donations to tell defamatory lies about me instead, it is not a wonder that we are fighting to have the rspca shut down, removed from all the expert advisory committees that is abusing taxpayers money by paying them, and to have their wildlife rehabilitation licence removed from the rspca, and to keep all animals away from them.

This is the response that ….. sent back to Linke.

Thank you for your response.

In response I would like to say that the government and the RSPCA should have full knowledge of the facts before raiding an innocent person’s home, and taking animals in her expert care, especially from someone with over 30 years of experience in caring who has an excellent track record, never accused of animal cruelty, and never committed acts of animal cruelty, and should ensure that they have the full facts before killing kangaroos that are killed inhumanely, and that I know that the RSPCA is opposed to full term rehabilitation of the sick, injured, orphaned native protected kangaroos and dictate what to put on the wildlife rehabilitation licence.

Also your no killing policy is a farce because everyone is fully aware that you kill everything.

You should be utilising Nora Preston’s long term expertise and knowledge and working with her and her rescue group rather than attempting to destroy her reputation and her group with your lies.

All native wildlife are protected which means, that you are not allowed to kill any native wildlife.

My mother and I are not supportive of the horrendous charges you impose on community members when surrendering their pets to you. We have an issue with overbred cat numbers in our area and the reason this is happening is because the owner of the breeding pair cannot afford to have them desexed and cannot pay to surrender up the offspring. My mother is elderly and gets very distressed about the issue of these poor cats.

I don’t consider your stance as helping the community in relation to animal welfare. Unfortunately in Canberra there are no alternatives to the RSPCA in regards to rehoming/desexing pets if you cannot afford to do this yourself.

So the RSPCA has the upper hand and can do what they like. We don’t have any confidence in the RSPCA in Canberra.

Fortunately, in Sydney we have many alternatives and lots of assistance for those who are doing it tough.

…….

Thanks for your note.

RSPCA ACT homes 94% of dogs and almost 90% of cats. We adopt a no kill philosophy with animals within our care.

With regard to kangaroos, the ACT government manages kangaroo populations in the ACT and RSPCA does not have a role to play.

With regard to Nora Preston, again the ACT government is the decision maker with regard to license holders and wildlife care in the ACT.

I always believe a full understanding of the facts is important before making claims such as the ones you have made below.

Michael

Dear Mr Linke

I have noted that other animal welfare agencies do their utmost to rehome animals whereas the RSPCA does what is expedient (which means you often put animals down when there is no necessity to do so). This also includes your part in the slaughter of the Kangaroos around Canberra recently.

You do this because you are not an independent agency as you receive government funding.

Therefore you have to toe the government line!

Hence the recent SLAUGHTER of innocent kangaroos which was completely unnecessary as other viable options had been put forward.

My mother, who has been a regular donor in the past will no longer donate to the RSPCA. Rather, her support will now go to independent organisations and wildlife rescue organisations.

I am appalled at the recent treatment of a wildlife rescue/carer in the ACT (Nora Preston). This amounted to unlawful entry, defamation and vicious harassment of this person.

This so obviously smacks of retribution in relation to her actions to take the ACT government to court to stem the SLAUGHTER of kangaroos by the ACT government. The RSPCA is doing the government’s dirty work for them.

How could you???? I am disgusted!!!

Again, this is evidence of the RSPCA toeing the line to guarantee their Government funding. Shame, shame, shame!

I must say, I am disgusted!

regards

…….

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

SEE the 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.

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 can offer to the tourists, is the pure breed native Dingoes, once the last 90 odd Dingoes, population estimation as of 28-29 August 2011, (since the mismanaged Fraser Island fire by the Qld government, this Dingo population has more than likely dropped dramatically), 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.
