NEWS ALERT!!WITNESSES CALLED HIT AND RUN BRUSHTAIL POSSUM
On Friday 20/4/12, a Brushtail Possum was hit on Learmonth Drive, Kambah, in the evening. Wildlife Carers Group is calling for any witnesses on the offender.
Please email email@example.com with ‘HIT AND RUN POSSUM, KAMBAH’ in the subject heading, or texting 0406 056 099 with any information you may have.
BRUSHTAIL POSSUM, a native protected animal.
All native wildlife are protected. It is unlawful to hit and run, or harm and harass any wildlife.
If you hit any wildlife, stop, offer the wildlife assistance, phone Wildlife Carers Group.
Check the dead or injured animal’s sex, if it is a female, check the pouch for young for Kangaroos, Wallabies, Wombats, Possums, etc. and wrap them up in a jumper or towel, whatever you have handy to keep them warm. The baby should stay with the injured mother so that it can keep suckling, call Wildlife Carers Group.
It’s a good idea to keep disposable gloves with you.
If you have witnessed a crime of any harm or harassment caused to any wildlife, a hit and run, take down the registration number of the vehicle, the colour and make of the vehicle, sex of the driver-male or female, whether or not the driver is caucasian, ethnic, african, etc, and any other information you may have on the hit and run driver or any other crimes committed to wildlife, and report it to Wildlife Carers Group either by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by phoning or texting 0406 056 099.
Wildlife Carers Group has been inundated with calls, so we ask for your patience.
If we haven’t returned your call, you have either left the wrong number, forgot to leave a number, we couldn’t decipher your number, or we have attempted to return your call but have not been able to get through.
Please remember to repeat your number twice so that we can write down your number.
Our phone gets congested, some calls could get lost in the system when everyone is attempting to leave a message at the same time.
When our phone goes to voice mail, we are on another call.
APRIL FLIES-OLD DOGS
If you have an old dog, you will have noticed the flies come out in April each year, and land on their ears eating them up causing bleeding and chewed ears, and at times, on their nose as well, also causing bleeding.
This Tea Tree spray is a good product to use to spray over the fly bitten areas that heals and repels the flies.
For the nose area, spray this product onto your fingers, and rub over the nose.
When spraying over the ears, make sure you cover the dog’s eyes and face with your hand, and spray away from the face and eyes onto the effected areas.
You can also spray this product over the entire dog if it is covered with flies.
COMPETITION BIRD IDENTIFIED from 3/3/12.
Congratulations to the winners. Galah, cacatua roseicapilla.
This galah was rehabilitated for 5 months by Wildlife Carers Group after being hit by a car. Anyone else would’ve euthanased this parrot.
Wildlife Carers Group is an independent, non government funded group, non profit group, and is not affiliated with the rspca in any way.
The rspca has never assisted Wildlife Carers Group with any funding, or in any other way.
Wildlife Carers Group does not support the rspca and their mass unnecessary and unlawful killing of pets/domestic animals and wildlife that just want to live, and indeed have the right to live equally to you and I, which the rspca are driving to extinction, when they can spend all their funds on GIVING THESE ANIMALS AWAY TO SUITABLE HOMES FOR FREE, and treating and providing full term rehabilitation for the sick, injured, orphaned. The unreleasable wildlife can also be given away FOR FREE to suitable homes with instructions for proper care that aren’t kept to be companions for the incoming sick, injured, orphaned. This will end poaching.
Once certain Wildlife groups and organisations such as the rspca, including certain vets, get to the point where they think that they can just kill everything that is brought to them, fail to treat each animal as equal with equal rights to be treated and to live, rather than treating the animals and offering full term rehabilitation, or finding suitable homes and giving them away for FREE to avoid euthanasia, it is time for them to resign, and to hand their jobs over to someone who cares and who places top priority over the animals rights offering them equal opportunity to be treated and to live.
A good quality of parrot mix, containing grey sunflower seeds only, using a combination of cockatiel mix, budgerigar/canary mix and parrot mix for larger parrots.
Dandelion(taraxacum officinale) and Paspalum grass of the genus Paspalum dilatatum.
You will find these growing in your backyard that some people call weeds.
Sulphur-crested cockatoo enjoying Paspalum as part of his diet.
You will find that your rehabilitating parrots will love this so called weed Paspalum included as part of their diet. It’s best to try and rip them out of the ground with dirt and roots to feed to the parrots.
Brushtail Possum enjoying Dandelion as part of his diet.
Not only the parrots enjoy eating the Dandelions, so do the rehabilitating Brushtail Possums.
If you watch the free wild parrots feeding, you will see them nibbling on the Paspalum and the Dandelions.
WILDLIFE CARERS GROUP WOULD LIKE TO THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR SUPPORT IN 2011.
WISHING YOU A VERY SAFE AND HAPPY YEAR FOR 2012.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org
and click on link http://www.environment.gov.au/biodiversity/trade-use/invitecomment/brushtail-possum.html

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.
