URGENT - CANBERRA/ACT KANGAROOS NEED YOUR HELP - Please sign this petition as individuals, and send to everyone else, if you have a website, please add this petition's link to it. 

 A more recent article that makes a small mention to my dedicated work with the Kangaroos in the Canberra Times http://www.canberratimes.com.au/act-news/canberra-city-of-animal-lovers-20120714-222rk.html.  One misquote in the article: the final Canberra Times Poll results were the majority of 56% opposing the killing, with only a small minority of 39% showing support to the government and TAMS government dept, agreeing to the killing, 5% were unsure. Please click on this link to view final poll results:

This is an abuse of taxpayers money that cost over $200,000, and an abuse of the government and government department's positions, ignoring expert advice outside the government.

Additional information given but not published:  I stated that I did support and applauded the activists excellent job in exposing the violent unlawful killing of the Kangaroos.

Please check out http://www.myspace.com/wcginc and facebook  http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1649024860&v=info for horrific photos of roo cruelty, this is the reality, and please follow us, and join us on twitter http://twitter.com/wildlifecarersg, http://wildlifecarersgroup.wordpress.com/?sn=l, http://wildlifecarersgroup.wordpress.com/2012/06/07/protected-native-violent-kangaroo-killing-in-the-act-7-june-2012/.

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.

ANIMAL WELFARE - Please copy and paste or click on the links below, to kangaroo cruelty into your browser, to view the horror. Kangaroos are killed in an extremely inhumane manner. Legally kangaroos killed are required to be killed by a single shot to the brain. there are instances where kangaroos are not killed in this manner. As a result, the kangaroo is shot agonisingly in the jaw, neck or the body, flees in response and will suffer a prolonged and painful death.

These joeys are killed often by shooters smashing them into the ground, against tow bars of cars or with a metal pipe or other blunt instrument. Alternatively, when not caught, an out of pouch joey will be left to fend for itself and will generally die of predation, starvation or dehydration.This is not to mention the stress suffered by kangaroos from hearing shots being fired and from being chased down by shooters.

Please check out This link 'KANGAROO CHILLER BOX INVESTIGATION' from animal liberation which wildlife warriors also have the same link to on youtube, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=18MoxO9yJa8&feature=related that contains the cruel bashing to death of roos 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.

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, etc. Keep watching till it stops, keep an eye on the timer, next to the speaker symbol, length 10:59.

Kangaroos don't need to be killed with this spray, that deters them:

If Kangaroos are a problem for your crops,
we have a environmentally friendly soil spray
that harmonises the environment, so Roos
no longer wish to be there.
There is no smell, no poisonous substances and
no harm done to any plant or animal.
"It all in the vibe"
This product can be applied with any other spray round.
Contact us on 04091166269 (ref: online Canberra Times ad choices)

This product cannot be over used, since vegetation/native flora is there for our native wildlife to consume. If over used the kangaroos will starve to death.

No evidence to support that this cull was necessary.

No documented evidence that supported this 2012 unlawful violent killing.

No figures of population of roos.

No evidence of documented damage.

Please check out this link 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

The kangaroo management plan is conjunctional, incompetent, and not based on any scientific facts.

The only objects that are causing the destruction of grasslands, woodlands, threatened species and ecosystems are tams staff and their shooters, the cattle they put into all the nature reserves after killing all the kangaroos from 2011-2013  because the grass was too long, and the government that fails to listen to the experts, to end this unlawful violent, unnecessary killing that will drive our protected native Kangaroos to extinction.  Click on this link for more information: http://wildlifecarersgroup.wordpress.com/2011/08/04/wildlife-carers-group-wcg-visit-to-callum-brae-nature-reserve-etc-full-5-day-work-experience-student-wes-placement-report-trained-by-wcg-founding-president-nora-preston-4-8-july-2011/?sn=l

We require the government department TAMS authority to deal with applications to kill protected native species, and to deal with applications for the native wildlife rehabilitation licence to be removed from TAMS, and handed over to Wildlife Carers Group.

We require that the Eastern Grey Kangaroos, along with other persecuted macropods  and native wildlife to be placed on the VULNERABLE Endangered list, AUSTRALIA WIDE.

We require changes in the legislations/Acts and policies in the ACT, and Australia wide, to ensure that all protected native wildlife are protected and not be allowed to be killed.

Wildlife Carers Group Wildlife Rehabilitation Licence to include FULL TERM REHABILITATION OF SICK INJURED ORPHANED NATIVE EASTERN GREY KANGAROOS, AND ALL OTHER NATIVE WILDLIFE THAT ARE CURRENTLY OMITTED FROM THE LICENCE.
