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/save–all–the-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.
You can help stop these extreme acts of animal cruelty to these possums by adding the above link to the possum abattoir and lodging your submissions by 23/4/10, to email@example.com

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 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.
