Australian Ministry for Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry: Stay of destruction of Rare Breed Poultry

    1. Welsummer Australia
    2. Petition by

      Welsummer Australia

      Tamborine, Australia

This is the first importation of Rare Poultry in 60 years and is required to ensure the preservation of these types of birds for future generations. Whilst the last thing the Importation Syndicate wants is to bring in any form of disease. The decision to destroy all birds for one chick which died of salmonella in the first week (this is already in Australia), whilst subsequent testing of birds since has proven negative. We feel the Syndicate made up of Poultry Fanciers across Australia, deserve the opportunity to seek to save the birds they have waited so long for.

To:
Joel Fitzgibbon, Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry
Mrs Rachel Sanderson
Stay of destruction of Rare Breed Poultry on 16th July 2013. Please give the Poultry Syndicate the opportunity to prove, that these birds, do not pose a disease risk.

Sincerely,
[Your name]
