WILDLIFE CARERS GROUP NEWS – WILDLIFE CARERS GROUP GOES TO AFRICA; WARNING:PROTEIN FROM CHINA USED IN ANIMAL AND BABY FORMULA; BAN GREYHOUND RACING – 25/2/15

We went on an African Safari in Canberra at the National Zoo and Aquarium.

Photos taken by Nora Preston, except for the photos that I am in.

BENGAL TIGER (Panthera tigris tigris) is the most numerous of tiger subspecies.  By 2011 the total population was estimated at fewer than 2,500 individuals with a decreasing trend. Gestation: 104-106 days; Height: 90-110 cm (at shoulder); Mass: 1kg on average (newborn), 140kg (female) 220kg (male). Roams a wide range of habitats including high altitudes, tropical and subtropical rainforests, mangroves and grasslands.

LONG-NECKED TORTOISE

LONG-NECKED TORTOISE.  The Long-necked Tortoise has 4 legs, with clawed webbed feet and does not primarily live in the water.  They walk a fair bit across land and only feed in the water.  The difference between Turtles is that they have flippers and they do live primarily in water.  Turtles only leave the water to lay eggs and then return to the water.

PATTING AND FEEDING A LEOPARD SHARK

PATTING AND FEEDING A TAWNY NURSE SHARK (Nebrius ferrugineus) is a species of carpet shark in the family Ginglymostomatidae and the only extant member of the genus Nebrius.  The most remarkable feature of the Tawny nurse shark is its ability to change colour between grey and sandy brown depending on the colour of its surroundings.  This is a nocturnal shark that usually forages for food at night and rests under reef overhangs and caves during the day.  At night the species feeds on a variety of bottom-dwelling lobsters, crabs, octopus and sea urchins as well as small fish.  The females give birth to up to eight live young that have hatched within the uterus.  Sharks feel like sandpaper and apparently sandpaper has been made out of shark skin, so make sure you check whether or not the next sandpaper you buy is made from shark skin, if it is, boycott it and don’t buy it.  Find sandpaper that is not made from sharks or any other animal products.  Don’t put your hands in the shark’s mouth when you are feeding them because you will get bitten as the shark goes for the food, as our personal guide found out.

SUMATRAN TIGER (Panthera tigris sumatrae) is the smallest and a rare tiger subspecies that inhabits the Indonesian island of Sumatra.  It was classified as critically endangered by IUCN in 2008 as the population was estimated at 441 to 679.  The actual population maybe as low as 400 that are left in the wild with a dwindling population.

PIG-NOSE TURTLE (CARETTOCHELYS INSCULPTA) is vulnerable with a length of up to 70cm. the Turtle inhabits freshwater rivers in Australia and Papua New Guinea that lives primarily in water except when laying eggs on sandy river beds.  Their shell feels leathery because it is covered in skin instead of the hard scutes that most turtles have.  Turtles have flippers, Tortoises have 4 legs/clawed webbed feet/toes.

Their shell feels leathery because it is covered in skin instead of the hard scutes that most turtles have. The difference between Turtles and Tortoises is that Turtles have flippers, Tortoises have 4 legs/clawed webbed feet/toes so that they can walk around on land, and swim in the water to have a feed.

I attended a meeting where a male person from the Government, Government Department who was a speaker claimed to be an expert in reptiles showing slides of them.  He may have been a Scientist.  He showed a slide of a Long-necked Tortoise and said that they live in the water and are turtles.  The tortoise was standing on land which I pointed out to him.  He angrily said that the tortoise was on land because he put it there to take the photo.  These are the people who don’t know what they are talking about who are lecturing, teaching, training the public in areas that they know absolutely nothing about.  How do these tortoises get run over on the road if they live in the water?  Show me their flippers and I will agree that the Tortoises are Turtles, but of course no one can do that either.

WARNING:  Protein from China used in animal and baby formula.

It is believed that the protein from China used in baby animal formula may be the cause of blindness in soft-furred animals as companies appear to be cost cutting and using inferior products.  Check the formula labels before buying them.  If they have China written on them, avoid them, and test the product for any contamination before using them.

I had this email sent to me asking me to further investigate this matter:

“…I was wondering,  if you have the latest information on Di-Vetelact, our Carers were having problems with animals getting cataracts.  

I believe the SHARPE  company was importing Protein from China, which we thought may have been the problem, are you aware if this is still the case.

I have emailed the company, but am not getting a reply.   We have also been warned about Biolac, M100, M 150 seems to be ok but trouble starts with M 200.  

My husband and I are elderly 83 and 80 years old and have been rearing joeys for 20 years, Possums, Wallabies and Eastern Greys.  

I’m using Wombaroo at the moment, but am not having the same  results, as when I used Divet. Joeys are slower in putting on weight, I am adding baby Farex to each bottle now, which is working, 1/4 tsp each bottle.  

Please if you can find the time, will you let me know if Di-Vet is safe again….”

I contacted Sharpe who advised me that they were getting their protein from New Zealand.  When I asked the Sharpe company manager/distributor where New Zealand was getting their protein from, he didn’t know. The problem is that wildlife have no lactose tolerance for cows milk or from any other animal that carries lactose that will kill them and it seems that the wildlife milk formula that we thought were safe do have cows milk powder included in the formula.

When I attempted to investigate Biolac, they didn’t answer my questions and instead sent me 2 threatening letters to gag me rather than trying to resolve the blindness that their product is causing that does not appear to be suitable for soft-furred animals.  As mentioned in the correspondence above, these carers are having problems from M200 Biolac and up. To see the Photos of the effect on joeys eyes caused by Biolac click on this link: https://wildlifecarersgroup.wordpress.com/2013/03/16/wildlife-carers-group-news-galah-avoid-biolac-snakes-molonglo-new-tams-minister-more-17313/    

It was announced that this same protein from China will be used in baby formula, so check the labels on your baby formula and make sure that the protein from China isn’t on the label, if it is, don’t buy it, it’s not worth the risk.

GREYHOUND RACING CRUELTY USING LIVE PROTECTED NATIVE WILDLIFE AND OTHER LIVE ANIMALS AS BAIT

I judged the short film ‘Maiden’ and discovered the animal cruelty last year while judging the short films entered in the film awards.  Prosecute the greyhound owners, handlers, greyhound clubs, filmmakers of this film, the actors and the possum handler named in the film credits who were involved in tying up a baby possum/joey to a lure that dragged the joey on the ground for the greyhound that was then fed to the greyhound.  I wouldn’t be surprised if they really bashed the greyhound to death as well at the end of the film since greyhounds that don’t perform are tortured to death as well.  Director Stephen Kanaris, Producer Tahnee McGuire, Production Company: Hatch Film watched and filmed a baby possum being strapped to a mechanical lure while the greyhound ran after it. The lure was close to the ground as the possum could be seen being dragged along the ground. The greyhound was then allowed to rip the possum apart. The film was shot in Queensland, outer suburbs of Brisbane, with the filmmakers categorising the film as: “Anger, violence, immigration, isolation, animal cruelty”: http://www.shortfilmcentral.com/film/5449/ Please sign this petition for Animals Australia to shut down the violent Greyhound industry: http://www.greyhoundcruelty.com/?r=54eca134c80e3142479390854eca134c81c3

In this article, interviewed on 15/4/10 that has now been removed, http://www.nowuc.com.au/2010/05/27/kangaroo-plan…/comment-page-1/  don fletcher from tams says thatkangaroos 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 , 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.

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.

WILDLIFE CARERS GROUP NEWS 30/12/13

PRESIDENT’S REPORT

We hope that everyone who celebrates Xmas have celebrated an extremely Merry Xmas. Have a safe and Happy New Year in 2014.

WordPress blogs and emails sent out have slowed down this year to rest my eyes due to many hours of computer work etc, that I also haven’t been paid to do since I volunteer all my time to do all this work; however that has not slowed down our work for our wildlife and other animals, animal welfare fighting to end animal cruelty. Some updates were posted on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/nora.preston.16 .  To be able to read the Facebook posts you will need to have your own Facebook profile.  Become a Facebook friend.

Even at the Eye Hospital, my wildlife rescue didn’t stop where I had to rescue a baby Blue Tongue Lizard that ventured into the building through the door that was slightly open.

There was no time for photos as I borrowed a Hospital towel to throw the towel over the Lizard, very gently pick it up, rush it out through the door and release it in their courtyard.

I attempted to release it in the garden under the rocks and bushes, and not on the tiles, however the Lizard had other ideas and began following me back into the building, so I had to run back in while the eye specialist held the door open for me and then quickly shut the door as I got back inside where I continued to wait to see another eye specialist.

No, I didn’t charge for my services, since I am a volunteer; however I was still charged a hefty bill by the Eye Hospital.

It’s great to be so appreciated.

Watch out for some Optometrists’ and eye specialists, some appear to want you to go blind before they do anything to prevent blindness. Get a 2nd opinion.  It’s too late to reverse it once you go blind.

We had a very busy year in 2013. So much was on that some information may be missed in this News.

On 8 May 2013 I attended the Voiceless Animal Law Lecture at the ANU: https://www.voiceless.org.au/animal-law/lecture-series/2013

GUEST SPEAKER founder and former Director of the Foundation for the Animal and a specialist in human-animal-relationships in Swiss and international law, Antoine F. Goetschel, currently partner at the law firm Krepper Knecht Partner, previously the animal welfare lawyer for the Canton of Zurich.


The Summary of the Voiceless Animal Law Lecture

On 31 May 2013 along with other meetings prior to the Federal Elections, I attended the Animal Justice Party Meetings.

From Left to Right: Candidate for ACT Marcus Fillinger, President Steve Garlick, Candidate for NSW Mark Pearson.

COMPETITION: Identify this bird. The first 10 to reply will receive FREE MEMBERSHIPS.

On 13 June 2013 I attended the National Capital Authority’s 5th Annual Public Forum to speak up for the necessity to maintain wildlife habitat and our wildlife: http://www.nationalcapital.gov.au/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=2595:public-forum-2013&catid=111:public-forum&Itemid=930

On 31/10/13 I attended the Conservation Council and Environmental Defender’s Office Planning and Environment Dispute Resolution Forum where we received an Environment Law Handbook: http://www.edo.org.au/edoact/publications.html.

Speaker Professor Peta Spender from ACAT/Tribunal

Speaker Stephen Johnson, Senior Associate, King & Wood Mallesons

In between these Forums and meetings, I attended other meetings, Forums etc. as well that kept me busy throughout the year.

I wrote to Chinese Embassies in the US and Australia on their violent angora rabbit industries where they rip the fur off the conscious live rabbits. Don’t buy anything with Angora in it. You will find images and videos on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/nora.preston.16.

I received enquiries on macropod formula that I had to investigate that were causing loss of weight and blindness that unfortunately included Di-vetelact. I questioned whether or not Di-vetelact purchased their protein from China, since apparently it is the Chinese protein that is causing the problems. Di-vetelact/Sharpe denied purchasing the protein from China, however, hopefully my phone discussion with the company has made them aware that there is a problem with their product and that they are rectifying it.  Link to article on Biolac and blindness written March 2013: https://wildlifecarersgroup.wordpress.com/2013/03/16/wildlife-carers-group-news-galah-avoid-biolac-snakes-molonglo-new-tams-minister-more-17313/

I have copied and pasted the original email sent to us below:

“Dear sir/ madam

I found your very informative website on the net, what a wonderful job are doing for all our animals, thank you.

I was wondering,  if you have the latest information on Di-Vetelact, our Carers were having problems with animals getting cataracts.

I believe the SHARPE  company was importing Protein from China, which we thought may have been the problem, are you aware if this is still the case. I have emailed the company, but am not getting a reply.

We have also been warned about Biolac, M100, M 150 seems to be ok but trouble starts with M 200.

My husband and I are elderly 83 and 80 years old and have been rearing joeys for 20 years, Possums, Wallabies and Eastern Greys.

I’m using Wombaroo at the moment, but am not having the same  results, as when I used Divet. Joeys are slower in putting on weight, I am adding baby Farex to each bottle now, which is working, 1/4 tsp each bottle.

Please if you can find the time, will you let me know if Di-Vet is safe again.


Yours in caring,…”

I’ve also received this email on the subject of Biolac copied and pasted below to which I have responded:

“Thank you Nora.
 
I came across your advice to carers regarding Biolac causing cataracts and  found it very refreshing to discover a carer like yourself willing to stand up  and speak the truth. You are the only person other than myself you has the guts  to tell others about this terrible problem, where so many unfortunate, innocent  joeys have been euthanased all because of cataracts caused by this  formula.
 
I have a huge section just on this subject in my new manual which I am  currently working on, with numerous cases and photographs and would like to know  whether you too would like to contribute your case study and photos.
 
We have pretty well worked out why the cataracts are connected with Biolac,  so I have also added this and have had assistance by Dr Tanya Stevens who, along  with other researchers did the initial study on formula associated  cataracts.
 
I look forward to hearing from you Nora.
 
Kind regards

Wildlife Carers Group was also nominated for a $1000 grant from one of the Bank’s who rang me to ask me to fill out a form for them.

Unfortunately I was so busy that I wasn’t able to fill out the form.

I have signed a number of petitions, some of which are on our Facebook page.

Wildlife Carers Group Donations were given as usual to a wildlife vet and to the Make A Wish Foundation.  The Make A Wish donation was given in conjunction with Film Networking Industry (Australia).

In Spring 6/10/13 I unfortunately came across this road kill, so please take care on the roads and remember to slow down and give way to our vulnerable wildlife.  Wildlife have no road sense, however, you do.

‘KANGAROOS AND DISEASES’, https://wildlifecarersgroup.wordpress.com/2011/08/04/kangaroos-and-diseases-notes-for-5-day-wes-4-8-july-2011/?sn=l

This species maintains a healthy, well balanced eco system.

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 thatkangaroos are not the main problem and in fact‘native grasses’ are not threatened with extinction, but other animals and plants are, and that “the biggest ‘contributor’ to the loss of the natural treeless grasslands of our region has been agriculture (by far)”.

This statement is admitting to the flawed, dishonest kangaroo management plan, and russell watkinson’s media release, on Friday 18/6/10, that blames the kangaroos for driving legless lizards, earless dragons, etc, and the deteriorating grasslands and woodlands to extinction, by eating all the grasses, when fletcher admits that the native grasses are not threatened by the kangaroos, but by human activity, including toxic sprays.

Please check out this link http://www.canberratimes.com.au/news/local/news/general/roo-best-custodian-for-some-plants/1652005.aspx , that was in the Canberra times on 17/10/09, that completely refutes the allegations against the roos destroying grasslands, that was sent to maxine cooper, that were also ignored.

The report is by Julie Lindner, who has also been studying the grasslands and the roos for the past 20 years, which backs up what I’ve been saying all along.

http://www.canberratimes.com.au/news/local/news/general/roo-best-custodian-for-some-plants/1652005.aspx, with a more recent article in the Chronicle in the ‘letters to the editor’ section, titled ‘culling controversy’ p.23, 14/6/11.

Please click on this link: www.youtube.com/watch?v=JUZrKj6ClBg   ‘KANGAROO CHILLER BOX INVESTIGATION’/’KANGAROOS ON TRACK TO EXTINCTION’, that contains the cruel bashing to death of roos that are shot, but not directly killed, hung up while still alive, and left suffering, trembling as they hang, tortured to death, and joeys bashed to death, possibly attempting to decapitate the joeys head on the back of the truck with several blows.

Please click on this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zbn3c8EcNRk&feature=related, so called controlled government butchering, you will note that the kangaroos are still alive when hung up, suffering, AND BEING TORTURED TO DEATH, the male is laughing at the cruelty he has just inflicted on this kangaroo, a joey stomped to death, even the child stomps on it as he walks past following his father, orphaned joeys hopping around, left to starve to death, a joey bashed till its eyes popped out, but is still alive, suffering, a prolonged death, and the male admitting that these are protected species. Native protected animals called pests, the very same native animals that maintain a healthy well balanced eco system. The code of practice that the shooter refers to is inhumane, and unacceptable, as witnessed in this video footage. Kangaroos are not fit for human or dog consumption, heavily contaminated with various diseases/harmful bacterias, e.coli, salmonella, staphylococcus, streptococcus, toxoplasmosis, preserved illegally with sulphur dioxide that causes thiamine deficiency, (a white crystalline solid forming part of the vitamin B complex, C12H17CIN4OS; a vitamin (B1), required by the nervous system, absence of which causes beri-beri and other disorders), causing death, intake of pesticide spraying to control locusts, etc. Keep watching till it stops, keep an eye on the timer, next to the speaker symbol, length 10:59.

There are more links on youtube to show the facts on the extreme cruelty committed to our native protected macropods.

Dingoes

Following Wildlife Carers Group Investigation and Report on the Fraser Island Dingoes, on 29/8/11, on 5/9/11, the Liberal National Party (LNP) has committed to ensuring the long term survival of the Fraser Island Dingoes, click this link to read the LNP’s commitments: http://www.lnp.org.au/policies/queenslands-precious-wildlife-the-fraser-island-dingo .

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.

MARCH FLIES – OLD DOGS

April last year I wrote an article on how to care for your old dogs from the April flies biting their ears, nose, body.

This year the flies are attacking earlier, in March, commonly known as the March Flies.

BIRDS IDENTIFIED – CONGRATULATIONS TO THE WINNERS

The first pictured bird is a nestling Chough, note the red eyes around the pupil.

Choughs are in the same family as the Currawongs.

The second pictured bird is a Currawong, note the yellow eyes that can still be seen from the distance.

Don’t be misled by inappropriate reports made against our native Currawongs by people who are not educated in our native wildlife.

Currawongs do not behave any differently to Magpies, Raptors, Kingfishers etc.  All of these birds catch baby and small birds to feed them to their young and to feed themselves with.

Currawongs are very important to assist in eradicating introduced pests.

This species maintains a healthy well balanced ecosystem.

NO SMOKING THANK YOU 3/1/13

NO SMOKING THANK YOU 3/1/13

We have recently heard in the news of non smokers being shocked to hear the doctor’s report that they have lung cancer or some other variety of cancers and other smoke related diseases when they do not smoke that is affecting tobacco smokers.

These non smokers are a victim of second hand smoke, or passive smoking.

Pets of smokers, other animals and wildlife around smokers are also seriously effected by the toxic carcinogenic smoke that is released into their lungs and the atomosphere as soon as the cigarettes etc are lit up.

We have even more recently heard that the minister in charge of the tobacco companies refuses to remove all cigarette packaging off the shelves that have been unlawfully covered with advertising by the tobacco companies after the government won a court battle against the tobacco companies to use only plain packaging, with the minister making up the incorrect excuse to the media that there is nothing she can do about it.  Yes she can, she can remove all these cigarettes off the shelves.  She can further immediately BAN ALL TOBACCO and remove all the cigarettes, cigars etc off the shelves permanently.

Wildlife Carers Group got involved in lobbying the government to ensure that large, clear No Smoking signs on white with red writing were erected in all No Smoking areas, to tighten the no smoking laws with tougher penalties, and when all this failed to stop the illegal smokers, to further ban tobacco all together, by sending out the information below the photos titled: “Impact smoke has on the environment and smokers, including non smoker’s healthwith attached photos and registration numbers; especially when another group discovered that the tobacco companies were using animals to do inhumane research on by pumping tobacco smoke into them who then killed the vulnerable victim animals once they finished their violent research on them.

I have fallen victim on numerous occasions taking photos of illegal smokers in non smoking designated areas by violent smokers assaulting me, threatening my life, verbal abuse using offensive language, setting up crashes, obstructions as they unlawfully collude and unlawfully stalk, defamed with vicious lies, vicious harassment, etc, who also refused to put their cigarettes out once notified that they are smoking in a non smoking designated area and the fact that they aren’t only killing themselves, but are also killing vulnerable non smokers that also include babies and children. These illegal smokers also smoked in front of the Child Care Centre to ensure that their lethal toxic carcinogenic smoke was inhaled by all the vulnerable children visiting the Child Care Centre.

Our lobbying has slowly toughened the No Smoking laws by increasing the No Smoking designated areas.

It is no secret that Smoking kills – the crime committed is discharging a lethal weapon releasing toxic carcinogenic smoke that kills and premeditated homicide.

This male was illegally smoking in front of the no smoking sign, at first he smiles for the camera 28/11/09.

Then he assaults me with his walking stick 28/11/09.

The No Smoking sign repeatedly ignored by all smokers since the No Smoking Laws applied. Photo taken 28/11/09.  This sign replaced the hyperdome’s faint blue writing and very small no smoking signs that disappeared into the background after I began lobbying for larger clearer permanently fixed signage.

21/12/09 the Day Care Centre is just to your left of this illegal male smoker.

23/12/09 These illegal male smokers sit right at the entrance so that all the smoke also escapes inside the hyperdome. The no smoking sign can be seen on the door, one at all of the boom gates as you enter all the car parks, and one on the protruding wall next to where the boys are sitting with only being visible side on in the picture.

10/2/10 This illegal smoking woman is walking straight towards the child care centre that can be seen with the green picture on the wall who started off in front of the No Smoking sign by the glassed entrance into the hyperdome spreading her toxic carcinogenic smoke all through the car park.

Over the years the signs changed inside the hyperdome carpark as I stepped up lobbying the government.

10/2/10 This illegal smoker repeatedly unlawfully assaulted me knocking my mobile out of my hand and tried to hide her cigarette who is being instructed on what to do on her mobile phone as she infects the carpark with toxic carcinogenic tobacco smoke being inhaled by non smokers.  She is instructed not to extinguish her cigarette, so she doesn’t.

27/4/10 an illegal male smoker deliberately approaches me with his cigarette.

27/4/10 his female friend moves in and my life is threatened and I am unlawfully stalked

27/4/10 I continued to take photos as this female friend with a tongue stud of the illegal smoker continues to unlawfully stalk me.

30/4/10 this illegal male smoker spreads his toxic carcinogenic smoke throughout the NO SMOKING hyperdome carpark and then further unlawfully litters the car park.

He left the unlawfully littering cigarette burning in the car park.

30/4/10 and this is the illegal male smoker’s car

16/1/ 2010 These 2 males continued to illegally smoke next to the glassed in entrance to the hyperdome filling the hyperdome with their toxic carcinogenic smoke. The male to your right with the baseball cap then further unlawfully assaulted me with his lit cigarette and flicked it at me, that was left burning.

16/1/10 The burning cigarette bounced off me and landed between my feet, I stepped back and took another photo.

16/1/ 2010 2 female staff members illegally smoking right next to the Child Care Centre that is to your right.

16/1/ 2010 same day the 2 female staff members are then joined by 2 males to add to the toxic carcinogenic smoke, 4 people illegally smoking in a no smoking area next to the Child Care Centre that is consumed by all non smokers.

23/1/ 2010 more illegal smokers hiding themselves knowing that they are killing their non smoking victims and that it is illegal to smoke in the underground carpark.

15/4/10 sitting down by the glassed in entrance to the shopping mall illegally smoking allowing their toxic carcinogenic smoke to enter inside the mall as well.

While I was the victim of ongoing unlawful threats, death threats, verbal offensive abuse, crashes set up, obstructions set up and unlawful stalking by these illegal smokers that continued throughout 2010, 2011, and 2012, I have skipped through the rest of 2010, 2011 and 2012 and have gone straight to the more recent criminal incident that occurred on 2/1/13 at the DFO non-smoking car park.

2/1/13 illegal smoker standing by the glassed in entrance to the DFO, right next to the no smoking sign that is on the glass next to the sliding door with 2 females the blonde pictured and a dark haired female who weren’t smoking who have confronted me before with their toxic carcinogenic tobacco smoke. The male refused to put his cigarette out after being educated into the harm it causes and that he is killing all the non smokers etc who furthermore deliberately further assaulted me by blowing his toxic carcinogenic smoke straight into my face.  The 2 females with this illegal smoker are aiding and abetting premeditated homicide of non smokers.

Impact smoke has on the environment and smokers, including non smoker’s health.

The hyperdome centre managment, along with all other non smoking venues, and the government have a duty of care to all non smokers that also includes vulnerable children and babies, by displaying large, clear, that are permanent fixtures, no smoking signs outside the building at all the entrances to the hyperdome,  and other non smoking venues, and on every pillar, also including a hefty penalty, along with security’s phone number, when non smokers lives are threatened by your violent smokers who have no regard for the no smoking laws, and the non smokers lives.

It is not a matter of IF the smokers are going to kill the non smokers, it is a matter of WHEN the smokers are going to kill the non smokers.

Legally, this term is known as premeditated homicide.

Irresponsible cigarette smokers that flick their live cigarettes into the environment, are the cause of the majority of fires. Smokers are costing taxpayers trillions of dollars in the fire emergency scheme, with the fire brigade having to run around putting out extra fires.

Cigarette smoking is a drug addiction, that is also forced on the innocent non smoking victims, which includes vulnerable babies and children.

Every time a smoker lights up a cigarette, they release toxic, some known carcinogens into the atmosphere, that is dangerous to the passive smokers.

Smokers are costing taxpayers trillions of dollars in the health scheme, and are forcing extra pressure on hospital beds by slowly killing passive smokers with the same smoke related diseases.

Smokers are contributing to and accelerating climate change.  By Immediately Banning tobacco, you are saving the environment, and you are saving lives.

Radioactive cigarette smoke- lead-210 (Pb-210) and polonium-210 (Po-210) are poisonous, radioactive heavy metals that research has shown to be present in cigarette/tobacco smoke.

Lead-210 and Polonium-210 come from uranium, an ore that occurs in small amounts in nature, breaks down, that releases radium as radon gas into the atmosphere. Once that occurs, radon gas decays quickly, producing lead-210 (PB-210) and polonium-210 (Po-210), highly radioactive metals known as radon decay products. Radium is also present in phosphate fertilisers that are often used in tobacco farming.

As the radium in soil around tobacco plants releases radon gas, and ultimately the tiny lead and polonium particles float free, they attach to bits of dust and are carried to the surface of tobacco leaves. Because tobacco leaves are covered with thousands of fine hairs, these radioactive chemicals grab hold and remain, that is then inhaled by the smokers and passive smokers, that enters their lungs, causing lung cancer, a decline in health, organ removal, prolonged suffering, unable to breathe, oxygen won’t help you either, because your whole immune system has shut down, your nose is running, bleeding, clotting, it feels blocked, you can’t breathe, you can’t eat, you slowly suffocate to death, releasing the toxic emissions into the atmosphere, and contributing to climate change.

Lead-210 and polonium-210 are insoluble in water, so they are not removed during the cleaning and cigarette manufacturing process.

This is only scratching the surface in the diseases that smoking causes.

Chemicals in cigarettes and cigarette smoke contain poisons, carcinogens and heavy toxic metals.

Cigarettes contain ammonia, (great to clean your toilet with, but not great for your immune system) acetone, (great to remove your nail polish, but not great for your vital organs), hydrogen cyanide, arsenic (great to kill your unwanted rats and mice, however, smokers are also killing themselves and innocent non smokers through passive smoking.)

Carcinogens in cigarettes – a carcinogen is defined as any substance that can cause or aggravate cancer. Approximately 60 of the chemicals in cigarettes are known to cause cancer.

TSNAs – tobacco-specific N-nitrosamines, are known to be some of the most potent carcinogens present in smokeless tobacco, snuff and tobacco smoke.

Benzene can be found in pesticides and gasoline. It is present in high levels in cigarette smoke and accounts for half of all human exposure to this hazardous chemical.

Pesticides are used on lawns and gardens, and inhaled into our lungs via cigarette smoke.

Formaldehyde is a chemical used to preserve dead bodies, and is responsible for some of the nose, throat and eye irritation smokers experience when breathing in cigarette smoke.

Toxic Metals in cigarettes – toxic/heavy metals are metals and metal compounds that have the potential to harm our health when absorbed or inhaled. In very small amounts, some of these metals support life, but when taken in large amounts, can become toxic.

Arsenic is commonly used in rat poison, arsenic finds its way into cigarette smoke through some of the pesticides that are used in tobacco farming.

Cadmium is a toxic heavy metal that is used in batteries.

Poisons in cigarettes – poison is defined as any substance that, when introduced to a living organism, causes severe physical distress or death. Science has discovered approximately 200 poisonous gases in cigarette smoke.

Ammonia compounds are commonly used in cleaning products and fertilisers. Ammonia is also used to boost the impact of nicotine in manufactured cigarettes.

Carbon Monoxide is present in car exhaust and is lethal in very large amounts. Cigarette smoke can contain high levels of carbon monoxide.

Hydrogen cyanide was used to kill people in the gas chambers in Nazi germany during world war 2. It can be found in cigarette smoke.

Nicotine is a poison used in pesticides and is the addictive element in cigarettes.

Passive smoking/environmental tobacco smoke – smoke produced by a smouldering cigarette is known to contain at least 250 toxic chemicals, including 50 cancer-causing chemicals. The smell of cigarette smoke is harming your health, and the environment.

Health diseases from cigarette/tobacco smoke – heart, emphysema, lung cancer, mouth cancer, kidney cancer, cervix cancer and bone marrow, gangrene, blood pressure, cataracts, contributes to the development of osteoporosis, increasing the risk for fracture in the elderly, abdominal aortic aneurysm, acute myeloid leukaemia, pancreatic cancer, pneumonia, periodontitis and stomach cancer. These are in addition to diseases previously known to be caused by smoking, including bladder,esophageal, laryngeal,lung, oral, and throat cancers, chronic lung diseases, coronary heart and cardiovascular diseases, as well as reproductive effects and sudden infant death syndrome.

During 1995-1999, smoking caused approximately 440,000 premature deaths in the US annually, leading to 13.2 years of potential life lost for male smokers, and 14.5 years lost for female smokers.

Ref: Harmful chemicals in cigarettes and health consequences of smoking, the 2004 report of the surgeon general, by terry martin, About.com guide, updated september 08, 2009, and 2004.

Tobacco is responsible for contributing to harmful carbon emissions and accelerating climate change.

“CRUEL ANIMAL TESTING BY TOBACCO COMPANIES.

Most people are fully aware that smoking cigarettes is dangerous to one’s health. With the ever-present Surgeon General Warnings printed on every single tobacco product on the market, you would be hard pressed to have missed it.

It doesn’t necessarily take a doctor or scientist though to realize that breathing in carcinogens on a daily basis is a potentially lethal habit. Common sense tells us that breathing smoke of any kind is bad for our lungs, yet for tens of thousands of dogs in research laboratories around the world — who are forced to ingest cigarette smoke for upwards of ten hours a day — this apparently obvious fact is ignored.

In the tobacco industry’s vain attempt to prove that their product doesn’t actually kill people, they have invested literally millions of dollars into animal testing facilities of their own.

Despite the fact all scientific evidence points to the same conclusion — using cigarettes and other tobacco products leads to cancers, emphysema, birth defects and a host of other physical ailments in humans — tobacco companies and research laboratories continue on with what appears to be not only a complete disregard of scientific findings, but a lack of concern for the lives of other beings.

Inside laboratories built by the tobacco industry, or in contract laboratories, beagle puppies are attached to gas mask-like devices and forced to breath in cigarette smoke for hours on end. After enduring months, if not years, of this torture, the poor, helpless dogs are killed so their lungs and other organs can be examined to study the impact the smoke had on them.

Since all conclusive evidence points to the fact that smoking is harmful for human beings, what could the possible motivation be for torturing and killing non-human animals, such as these dogs? And this horrific treatment is not limited to dogs. Pregnant Rhesus monkeys in these laboratories are forced to breathe in cigarette smoke during the duration of their pregnancy and, shortly before giving birth, the mother and her unborn child will be killed so her body may be dissected and her baby removed to observe the side effects of smoking on pregnancy and fetal development.

The same is true for a host of other species such as mice and rats.

It is hard for me to fathom the consciousness of a person who attaches a gas mask to a puppy’s or pregnant monkey’s face each day. What must go through their minds to enable them to justify such injustice? Unlike other forms of vivisection where a lab technician can delude themselves into believing that sacrificing another species benefits the greater good, those working inside tobacco research laboratories must be all too aware that their “research” will benefit no one other than the tobacco industry’s pockets. ”

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.htmlpetition.com/petitions/saveallthe-kangaroos.html.

In this article, interviewed on 15/4/10, http://www.nowuc.com.au/2010/05/27/kangaroo-plan%E2%80%A6/comment-page-1/(this page may now be closed to leave space for UC new students interviews)
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.

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.

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 ecosystem.

WILDLIFE CARERS GROUP SUBMISSION FOR MOLONGLO AND NORTH WESTON DEVELOPMENTS

WILDLIFE CARERS GROUP SUBMISSION FOR MOLONGLO AND NORTH WESTON DEVELOPMENTS ACT

Preamble

The development of Molonglo and North Weston, will breach the intergovernmental agreements in urban Australia, that falls under section 146 of the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation act 1999 (EPBC) that states that the EPBC and NES will take precedence over all developments,
and will further have a huge devastating impact on matters of National Environmental Significance (NES) that include threatened species, migratory species and important ecological communities.

1 The Molonglo Plan for the Protection of Matters of NES

Any development will completely destroy these habitats, and their protected wildlife, through construction, their equipment, the labourers, the homes, the residents, domestic pets, more roads, pollution, etc, therefore, this development plan must be aborted, in order to maintain the bushland, endangered species, and bush capital.

2 Relationship between the NES Plan and ACT legislation including the structure plan for Molonglo and north Weston

Any development will completely destroy valuable matters of NES, through construction, their equipment, the labourers, the homes, the residents, domestic pets, more roads, pollution, etc, there is no fine line between wildlife and their habitat, that can separate them from the areas that are proposed to be developed, therefore, these developments must be aborted, in order to maintain the bushland, endangered species, and the bush capital.

3 Actions under the NES plan

All this proposed construction will completely destroy the endangered species and their habitat, through construction work, their equipment, labourers, the homes, the residents, domestic pets, more roads, pollution, etc, including the natural flow, food source, for aquatic and other wildlife, of the Molonglo river.

There is no fine line between wildlife and their habitat that can separate them from the areas that are proposed to be developed, therefore, these developments must be aborted, in order to maintain the bushland, endangered species, and the bush capital.

4. Protection of matters of NES

NES identified in the Molonglo valley and north Weston are:

  • White box, Yellow box, Blakely’s red gum grassy woodland and derived native grassland (Box-Gum Woodland);
  • Natural temperate grassland of the southern tablelands of NSW and the ACT (Natural Temperate Grassland);
  • Aprasia parapulchella (Pink-tailed worm lizard);
  • Polytelis swainsonii (Superb Parrot);
  • Lathamus discolour (Swift Parrot);
  • Merops ornatus (Rainbow Bee-eater)

Through this investigation and their own admittance, in this report, development will have an adverse effect on these endangered species, which will be driven to extinction, unless this proposed development is aborted in Molonglo and North Weston.

The Rainbow Bee-eater used to nest at Kambah, in the ’80’s, however, after the Murrumbidgee golf club, and other housing was developed in their habitat, they disappeared.

This rare protected and endangered wildlife are slowly disappearing from the ACT, because of over development of this state, and the destruction of wildlife habitat.

Destruction through Construction cannot be controlled, and is inevitable, through their use of their equipment, labourers, the homes, the people, domestic animals, pollution, more roads, building fences etc.

There is no fine line between wildlife and their habitat that can separate them from the areas that are proposed to be developed, therefore, these developments must be aborted, in order to maintain the bushland, endangered species, to prevent them from being driven to extinction, and the bush capital.

Concerns that were also raised in the questionnaire, is with diverting all the run-off waters into ponds and wetlands, and watering trees, will starve the nearby rivers, and will dry them up.

Long term devastating, destructive impact has not been considered, through the planning of blocking off run-off waters, that the rivers need, and destroying more wildlife and wildlife habitat in the bush capital, that the majority have already expressed, they wish to maintain.

The Murray River dried up just upstream of the Murrumbidgee junction, because of channelling waters away from the river.

Over treating natural waters, kills wildlife, and drives them to extinction, which will also affect human health, with too much chemical treatment intake.

Molonglo and North Weston need to be left alone, with no further habitat destruction and loss.

This will work towards the majority of the populations request, to maintain our bush capital, as native bushland, co existing with ALL our native fauna and flora, preventing extinction of our native flora and fauna.

RSPCA SELLING STOLEN WILDLIFE BELONGING TO WILDLIFE CARERS GROUP; ACT GREENS PARTY OFFER THE ACT RSPCA $1MILLION; RSPCA ANIMAL CRUELTY CONTINUES; SUPER TRAWLER; PETITIONS 1/9/12

RSPCA SELLING STOLEN WILDLIFE BELONGING TO WILDLIFE CARERS GROUP; ACT GREENS PARTY OFFER THE ACT RSPCA $1MILLION; RSPCA ANIMAL CRUELTY CONTINUES; SUPER TRAWLER; PETITIONS 1/9/12

RSPCA SELLING STOLEN WILDLIFE BELONGING TO WILDLIFE CARERS GROUP

On 31/8/12 I decided to check out the rspca website to see if they are selling my protected native wildlife they stole from my property after their unlawful trespassing on my property on 10/8/12.

When I cleaned out my aviaries after the rspca ripped my wildlife out of their aviaries, on 10/8/12 there was blood all over the aviaries that I had to clean and scrub out.

I clicked on ‘adopt-a-pet’ link, then clicked on ‘.To view the animals currently awaiting adoption please here.’ link that sent me to another page where I clicked on ‘birds’ from a drop down menu, and sure enough, they are selling a Sulphur Crested Cockatoo that they named ‘Varric’ that could belong to Wildlife Carers Group.

The Cockatoo looks quite alarmed and frightened in their displayed photo, as shown below, and is clearly not a happy bird with the rspca, who stripped him from his friends.

This is what they write about the Cockatoo with the rspca’s photo of the bird that they are selling below:

“A little bit about me

Varric is a timid cocky, and not really a hands on bird, just not raised that way. This gorgeous bird needs to go to a home that would provide a large ineresting aviary, and because he is not going to have human interaction the aviary needs to provide lots of play things and natural native branches and things to chew on and destroy to stop boredom from setting in, I’m sure he would love to hear you talk to him often even if he doesn’t seem interested. Not sure of age but remember cockatoos live for a very long time and are a big commitment. Varric would also be an ideal companion for another cockatoo.”

Stolen Cockatoo from Wildlife Carers Group by the rspca? – Varric being sold by the rspca

It is unfortunate that I didn’t check the rspca website earlier to check on the rest of my wildlife stolen by the rspca when they unlawfully entered my property on 10/8/12.

The rspca don’t even know how to sex the Cockatoo where they write in the ‘Sex’ column ‘Unknown’.

This prompted me to send an online message to the rspca from their website on 31/8/12 when I wrote:

‘Is the white cockatoo Varric you are selling on your website one of the stolen cockatoos that you stole from my property on 10 August 2012 when you unlawfully trespassed onto my property and then defamed me with your vicious lies to the Canberra Times that appeared in Saturday’s Canberra Times on 11/8/12.

You are not permitted to kill or sell any of my wildlife; you are going to have to ensure that they are all returned to me.

We are not here for you to profit from us.

People do not take wildlife to you for you to profit from them and to sell them.

We paid for the phone calls the rescue the treatments and the care.

You are required to immediately reply to me by emailing wildlife_carers_group@yahoo.com.au.

The public take wildlife to the rspca for the same reason they bring them to me and to Wildlife Carers Group, to be rehabilitated, to be given proper treatment and to be cared for, if unreleasable, to be kept as companions for new incoming wildlife and to assist in training the public or to give talks to assist in identification, etc.

I couldn’t find any price tags on the wildlife the rspca are selling, but I’m sure it is a hefty price, since the rspca are there only to profit from animals/wildlife.

The rspca are also selling a Princess Parrot.

I wonder who they stole the Princess Parrot from.

GREENS PARTY ABUSING TAXPAYERS MONEY OFFERING THE RSPCA $1million.

TV News reported on 31/8/12 that the Greens Party MLA Caroline Le Couteur has announced that they will give the rspca $1million for animal welfare if they get re-elected in the October elections.

After everything that has happened to me and to Wildlife Carers Group, and my wildlife, the government torturing kangaroos to death with no one terminated from their jobs and prosecuted, as far as we know, etc, isn’t that a slap in the face for our protected native wildlife and animals here in the ACT.

Giving the rspca $1million is not going to help our animals welfare, the rspca will continue to abuse animals/wildlife, kill if they can’t sell it, kill if they have a personality clash, kill if they don’t like it, demand that they are taken off the wildlife rehabilitation licence if they don’t like it because they have no expertise knowledge or understanding in wildlife, wildlife habitat, conservation, the ecosystem, the kangaroos will continue to be tortured to death, in short, animal cruelty will continue under the rspca and the government and their government department TAMS.

By the way, Michael Linke, the highly over waged unqualified rspca CEO, who is paid by you the taxpayer, was not happy with the offer, he wanted much more.

You can expect no changes or improvements in ending animal cruelty, ending the wildlife abuse, violence and unlawful killing, ending the unlawful trespassing and stealing of wildlife by the government, the rspca and the police in the ACT if the Greens Party get re-elected.

The Greens Party have not offered me a Public apology with the order that my wildlife are to be immediately returned to me. They are fully aware of what has happened.  I spoke with Caroline Le Couteur at the last GetUp meeting when she said she would be contacting TAMS, then she digressed and said she would be writing to the Chief/TAMS Minister.

I still don’t have my wildlife back, and I still haven’t received  a public apology.

If the Labor Party don’t immediately offer me a public apology and order my wildlife to be returned alive to me, and the licence debacle fixed as per my conditions, then we will know that nothing will change if the Labor Party gets re-elected either.

What do the Liberal Party, and other Parties have to say about these unsavioury matters?

I Would appreciate feedback on what the Liberal Party and other Parties will do about these situations if they are elected.

RSPCA ANIMAL CRUELTY CONTINUES

The dog reported a number of times that is subject to animal cruelty and an uncontrolled dog belonging to 15 Drysdale Cct Kambah that the rspca refused to seize, and TAMS also refused to seize as an uncontrolled dog saga continues.  The owner of now 2 dogs has a long history of animal cruelty and well known to the rspca as well for his acts of animal cruelty, who was kept under surveillance for some time, and yet the rspca still refused to seize his 1 dog, that has now multiplied to 2 dogs, when he had his pig hunting dogs, ripping each other apart, refusing to pay a vet to sew his seriously injured dogs up, he sewed them up himself without anaesthetic, torturing his dogs, as one by one they were killed by serious infections through the owner unlawfully sewing them up himself using non sterile equipment, and pigs, and let’s not forget how cruel pig hunting using dogs are to the pigs as well.

Photo of black dog taken 31/8/12 in the dreadful freezing cold 2% rain, hail, snow that came down seconds after this photo was taken with the poor dog left on the back of the truck exposed, with no shelter, no food, no water, with the truck parked on the road dangerously so his dog can get killed by oncoming traffic with someone else who drives around the blind bend from behind the back of the truck.

This photo was taken on 13/8/12, and as you can see not only has his 1st dog been left with him for ongoing abuse, he has been allowed to register a 2nd dog, so that he can abuse 2 dogs with his truck parked on the road with both of the dogs left on the back of his truck with no shelter, no food and no water hoping both of his dogs get killed on the back of the truck parked dangerously on the road. The 2nd dog howls and barks and is not a happy dog either.

I sent this email to DAS (the dog pound) on the same day with the above photo:

Good afternoon,

Further to my previous emails, my phone call to you about his second dog, I have attached a photo taken today 13/8/12 showing you his 2 dogs kept on the back of the truck yue 022 parked dangerously and illegally on the road, causing an obstruction, endangering the dogs lives, and of course people’s lives, but clearly public safety is of no concern to you, being abused by this long term of 30 years reoffending dog offender, dog abuse, animal cruelty.

You claim that animal welfare is not your concern.

When you receive visual photographic evidence of animal cruelty, uncontrolled/ROAMING dog, then before you allow the same reoffending dog offender to register a 2nd dog, animal welfare should play a serious part in your assessment on who can have a 2nd dog.

The new 2nd dog is howling and barking, clearly not a happy dog.

I refer you to previous emails and photos sent.

We require you to seize both dogs from this property at 15 Drysdale Cct Kambah to prevent any further abuse to the dogs.

Sincerely

NORA PRESTON

Founding President

WILDLIFE CARERS GROUP’

Of course even though Parking Operations and Roads ACT are paid to place top priority on public safety, public safety isn’t parking operations or roads ACT concern either as they allow this truck to be permanently parked dangerously on the road on, before, near or after blind bends, roundabouts, causing an obstruction with drivers being forced to drive unlawfully on the wrong side of the road in the narrow circuit who refuse to book him, and refuse to display ‘no parking’ signs throughout the small circuit to keep him in his driveway that is mostly empty.

Wildlife Carers Group has contacted both the rspca and das (domestic animal services – dog pound) to seize the dog from 15 Drysdale Cct Kambah, and requested that they work together to seize the dog.

The rspca came out and saw the dog, and agreed with Wildlife Carers Group that the dog was underweight, saw that the dog was inhumanely kept on the back of the truck, uncontrolled, parked dangerously on the road, and yet still refused to seize the dog that is shown in the attached photo no.3 dated 21/5/12. The dog did not remain on the back of the truck. The owner went away and left the dog there, which is why the rspca could not speak with him, and yet all they did was leave a note on his door, and leave the dog there so that he can continue to commit acts of animal cruelty.


DAS was also requested to come out and seize the dog, but refused to.

As you are all aware, the ongoing reports of animal cruelty and the uncontrolled dog went ignored, and as the email dated 13 August 2012, above for your information showed, the reoffending dog offender was allowed to register a 2nd dog to abuse and to use as a harassing dog, cause an animal nuisance, with double the trouble using and abusing 2 dogs in the attached photo dated 13/8/12.

Attached Photo dated 21/4/12, shows the roaming dog defecating on private/public land, other photos were sent that were clearer so that DAS could identify the dog when the owner went away for 3 days, kicked the dog out into the street and left the dog to fend for itself.


The dog from this property was also reported last year for animal cruelty left on the back of the truck in a 30 degree heat with no food and water. Please click on this link and go to “Dog Cruelty in the ACT” article: https://wildlifecarersgroup.wordpress.com/2011/11/27/wildlife-carers-group-commended-tweed-heads-magpie-saved-animal-welfare-wildlife-carers-group-donation-certificate-sponsorship-for-radio-ad-to-expose-pig-factory-farming-special-childrens-x/

While the rspca abuse your taxpayers money from their government funding and your donations to them to falsely defame people like myself, harass us, and steal properly cared for wildlife in my care, that we protect from the rspca and the government, and their government department TAMS from their death sentence, and who try to shut down groups like myself who genuinely protect wildlife and domestic animals, both wildlife and domestic animals suffer in the hands of the rspca, who refuse to seize dog cruelty cases such as this one, but will unlawfully trespass on private property and steal properly cared for wildlife from people like me, the violent unlawful killing will never stop, the unlawfull killing by the rspca will never stop, and animals and wildlife will never be given the chance to their right to live.

Animals have to be given to suitable homes for FREE to prevent unlawful killing of healthy animals. The everyday unnecessary killing of animals and wildlife is animal cruelty.

If the rspca cannot make money out of the animal, they will face a death sentence under the rspca.

Not only do the rspca know absolutely nothing about wildlife, they know absolutely nothing about domestic animals, or understand them and their rights to their space, to know when to back off and leave them alone.

If you want to help save animals and help save and protect our protected wildlife, boycott the rspca.

Your money, your free advertising for them, will only be abused and used to falsely slander the names, such as mine, who provide proper care and treatment to wildlife, who respond to animal cruelty complaints, with no government funding, who dip into our pockets to end animal cruelty, and to enforce the wildlife protection laws.

As you are aware, all uncontrolled dogs are unpredictable, and are a danger to people, other animals, wildlife and to themselves, and that it only takes a split second for a dog to attack a person, another animal, wildlife.

URGENT SEIZURE OF THE DOG/s FROM 15 DRYSDALE CCT KAMBAH IS REQUIRED, TO PREVENT ANY FURTHER DOG OFFENCES AND ANIMAL CRUELTY.

WILDLIFE CARERS GROUP DONATES TO ASSIST GetUp PLACE AN AD TO STOP THE SUPER TRAWLER

Wildlife Carers Group responded to this email from GetUp that I have copied and pasted as it was sent to me, if you can assist please click on the links:

‘From: GetUp!
To: wildlife_carers_group@yahoo.com.au
Sent: Friday, 31 August 2012 12:13 PM
Subject: It’s here.

Nora,

It’s here.

At 2:34pm yesterday the world’s second largest super trawler docked in Australia, despite having no license to fish in our waters and facing massive community opposition. It can fish with nets whose mouth stretches up to 100 meters high, 200m meters wide and 600m long – that’s longer than the length of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. It vacuums up everthing in its way killing dolphins, seals, migratory sea birds and other protected species.

But, there’s one person who has the power and authority to stop the super trawler from plundering our seas: Federal Fisheries Minister Joe Ludwig. Despite this issue being on the agenda for weeks, he’s been dragging his heels and advised media on Tuesday that he was yet to make a decision one way or another on the super trawler. Let’s help him decide!

With your help an ad which shows the shocking by-catch of a super trawler can be run on Monday in The Australian, to show Joe Ludwig that Australians will not accept the super trawler’s impact on our marine life:

www.getup.org.au/stop-the-super-trawler

Almost 78,000 people have signed the petition to stop the super trawler, begun by GetUp member Rebecca Hubbard on GetUp’s new community campaigning tool, CommunityRun.org. As people come to understand the incredible damage the super trawler will do in Australian seas, they are moved to action.

The shocking photo in this ad, provided by our friends at Greenpeace, was taken by a fisheries researcher whilst on board another Dutch-owned super trawler fishing off Mauritania in 2006. It’s a stark and shocking reminder that super trawlers, with their enormous nets, are designed to catch everything it their path.

The target species the ship wants are mackrel and redbait but there is no proven way to stop seals, dolphins and other marine life getting trapped and crushed in the enoroumous net. Scientists also say that the 18,000 tonnes of fish the trawler could be allowed to catch is far too high and based on outdated information – concluding there is not a scientific case to allow the trawler to fish in Australian waters.

The person who has responsibility to stop the super trawel is the Fisheries Minister, Joe Ludwig.

Each of us can help make Joe Ludwig’s decison a lot easier by making sure the implications of his decison are widely known. Can you chip in to get this ad in The Australian?

www.getup.org.au/stop-the-super-trawler

This issue is at a tipping point: it could go either way. But we know that when, as a community movement, we get behind great campaigns like this one started by Rebecca on CommunityRun.org we have the people power to win!

Thanks for being part of this,
The GetUp team.’

After Wildlife Carers Group donated we received this:

THANKS FOR DONATING!

Thanks for donating to help get this ad in the The Australian on Monday. Don’t forget to grab a copy on Monday to see the ad you helped make possible. We’ll keep you updated on Minister Ludwig’s decision when it’s made.

Can you take a minute to share this with your friends and family? Share this on Twitter, Facebook and by email using our handy tool on the right.

We did share this on Twitter and Facebook as well.

Unlike the rspca who make you the taxpayers pay heavily for everything they do, who never pay for anything, donations etc out of their own pockets, Wildlife Carers Group donation was NOT paid by you the taxpayers, it was paid by me out of my own pocket.

You can also sign the Australian Marine Conservation Society’s petition that I have already signed twice on behalf of Wildife Carers Group to help stop the super trawler:

Dear Nora

In less than three weeks, there’s a blockbuster hitting our shores that you don’t want to see. It’s super-sized, super-destructive and its trail of devastation is coming to an ocean near you!
One of the world’s largest fishing boats, the Dutch-owned FV Margiris, has just finished fishing out the waters off West Africa, where it hammered already-exploited fish stocks and left it even harder for local fishers to catch fish. Now, an Australian Fishing company, Seafish Tasmania, want this factory trawler to plunder for small fish that are critical to marine ecosystems in waters off Tasmania.
Ironically, after the fish are caught they’ll be sold to African countries for human consumption for a measly $1/kg.

undefined

It’s difficult to fathom the size of this giant vessel – at 142 metres long and nearly 9500 tonnes it makes most Australian fishing boats look like bath toys. A floating factory and freezer, it can process over 240 tonnes (that’s 240,000 kilograms) of fish PER DAY and can store 6.2 MILLION kilograms of fish cargo. But the devouring net of the super trawler won’t just catch small fish. Dolphins, seals and seabirds will likely be accidental victims of this massive trawler. The ‘excluder devices’ designed to protect threatened species are in no way guaranteed to work for a net this size.
Even the species spared from the net will feel the destruction of this factory trawler. The small fish it scoops up are a vital food source for critically endangered southern bluefin tuna, rare marine mammals, seabirds and other big fish that are important ecologically, as well as to recreational and other commercial fishers.

Our Ministers for fisheries and the environment have the power to prevent this industrial super trawler operating in Australian waters, but they need to hear you don’t want it here. Opposition is growing but we need to make our voices louder. We need to speak up. We must convince them to turn this boat around.
The impacts of this decision go beyond this single fishery. Please make your voice heard and send a quick message to Fisheries Minister Joe Ludwig and Environment Minister Tony Burke here…

Wildlife Carers Group also signed petitions for PETA to help stop Animal Cruelty committed to animals at UTMB:

An insider at the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston (UTMB) has blown the whistle on animal abuse and neglect in the university’s laboratories. According to the whistleblower, dogs were mutilated in experimental surgeries; sheep, pigs, and mice were subjected to third-degree burns on up to 40 percent of their bodies and reportedly deprived of adequate pain relief; and mice died because UTMB staff members didn’t notice that the animals had no access to water. The whistleblower also reported that inadequate veterinary care, inept personnel, careless handling, and neglect were daily problems in the university’s labs.

Please click the link below to urge UTMB’s executive assistant to the president to launch an investigation of the university’s laboratories and put an end to the suffering of animals.

Wildlife Carers Group also signed the urgent petition to stop Animal Cruelty at MarineLand:

‘Hi Nora,

A harbour seal who’s gone blind. Five dolphins who have lost skin. Two sea lions who developed such bad illnesses that they’ve had to be kept in dry cages for months to try to recover. »

These are all health problems that have been caused by the conditions at MarineLand in Niagara Falls, Ontario. According to former employees, many of the animals have experienced severe health issues caused by neglect.

MarineLand is licensed by the self-regulating Canadian Association of Zoos and Aquariums, and there are no government regulations for keeping sea mammals in captivity in Canada.

The staff quitting in protest won’t save the seals, whales, and dolphins whose health continues to deteriorate. In fact, MarineLand owner John Holer has plans to expand.

We must save these intelligent animals from any more suffering.
Tell John Holer to clean up MarineLand’s act today! »’

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.

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 ecosystem.

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, etc 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 and my wildlife food 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..

……

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.

Possum Abattoir– Lenah Game Meats, Tasmania — EngageMedia

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.

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.
