This has been done in this area for years but in 2011 the laws seem to have changed. Many animals get injured in the area and carers have taken them in to ensure their rehabilitation. This has been done with no financial assistance.
We are surrounded by many companies who have policies in place to conserve wildlife this includes passing on injured wildlife to carers.. There is no set soft release zones for the animals in this shire. Soft release allows the animals a higher survival rate as they are gradually reintroduced into the wild and dehumanised. We have now been told that a $2500 fine is applicable for having them in our home and will increase $250 per day for non compliance. That includes this little fellow who was bought to us by the local vet clinic.
