SAVE AUSTRALIAN ANIMALS/MARINE LIFE IN DANGER. Revise harmful Invasive Animal Legislations

  To the Australian Politicians, Main Issue 1 a Your Environmental control systems are fragmented. See the big picture and have you ever witnessed so many animals get killed all over this country Australia! by Invasive Animals Australia. Is it not obvious that each territory is running a killing havoc with our precious animals and marine life. Its completely unnecessary and abnormal in forms of addressing these issues for farmers and their natural surroundings. Farmers can capture these animals in more humane ways, using traps then rangers taking these animals to zoos and sanctuaries, animal carers & WIRES. Main Issue 1 b. Can you please tidy up a reckless situation which includes Barnaby Joyce in the National Party, KIAA. Kangaroo Industry, Shooters Party & Bio security legislations and Invasive animal legislation involving animal cruelty Marine life cruelty, Australians like their animals and marine life.These people have use excuses to protect farmers, but in reality, they are killing for a meat industry, skin sports industry. What is this NSW Environment, climate change & water ?, what is this National Parks? your 'Handbook for Kangaroo Harvesters' .(YourHandbook for Kangaroo Harvesters - · PDF file)4 Handbook for Kangaroo Harvesters Introduction DECCW has prepared this handbook to help kangaroo harvesters meet the NSW Government’s requirements Primary Industry cannot label all these animals as invasive species then use that as an excuse to market their dead meat for selling commercially. How dare your government mass murder our Native kangaroo species to grind into PET FOODS, fox baits, wild dog baits, export human consumption to 70 countries. This is downright wrong, its virtually stealing and robbing our wildlife native animals that belong to this COUNTRY ' AUSTRALIA'. These animals do not belong to politicians, or shooters, or pet food suppliers! Absolutely NOT! and this True Native Kangaroo Wildlife is not for export for 70 countries on your target list including Russia, Korea, China, USA, human consumption, skins for sporting accessories, you virtually stole WILDLIFE, you downgraded these special animals so you can treat them as invasive! then KILL! PROFIT. Main Issue 1c. Have politicians tried to listen to comments made by Australians about animal cruelty. Politicians were voted in to represent all, not just Primary Industry, Bio-security and Invasive Animals Australia, using unending excuses to slaughter our animals. The Greens Party and National Parks NPWS have also used unending excuses for vegetation damage and labelled all these animals including Brumbies(wild horses) FERAL! taking advantage of government grants/funding to eradicate Australian animals. This is so corrupt it needs an internal review. It was these same groups that oppose hunting when previous Premier Barry O'Ferral reversed the conservation policies to allow hunting inside National Parks and Conservation Parks, Weirdly these groups have since joined INVASIVE ANIMALS AUSTRALIA to eradicate most of the animals! ALL EXTREMELY HYPOCRITICAL! Game hunting inside National Parks should be banned. As well as pouring poisonous chemicals into rivers!. Do you understand how bad the government has behaved by allowing mining in the nearby reefs! Knowing the Great Barrier corals are dying and climate change action is needed.The Governments supporting this mine reflects how desperate politicians are to cash in and prepared to destroy Australia's most famous REEF! Affecting tourism and marine life! As much as you use tax payer funds to do your government jobs, there are many more ways to resolve this form of culling other then downright murdering our animals and murdering our marine life! 1. Rabbit haemorrhagic disease (RHD), also known as rabbit calicivirus disease (RCD) or viral haemorrhagic disease (VHD), is a highly infectious and often fatal disease that affects wild and domestic rabbits of the species Oryctolagus cuniculus. The infectious agent responsible for the disease is rabbit haemorrhagic disease virus (RHDV), or rabbit calicivirus (RCV), genus Lagovirus of the family Caliciviridae. Do you accept there will be lawsuits should pet rabbits die from politicians delegating to bio-security for allowing these viral disease to be spread by mosquitoes, fleas, flies? Our cities do not need these viruses RHDVK5, contain it in your farms! 2. Snowy Mountain Brumbies, How many horses are slaughtered! Why is the entire control especially Primary Industry NSW run by the Shooters Party? Their scientists are all game hunters! There is no fair votes inside these organizations! Hundreds of wild horses slaughtered in abattoirs! Shame again on Invasive Animals Australia, bio-security for passing policies that allow them to label wild brumbies as pests!. Have you politicians wondered it could be more financially viable to build dams or ponds for these Brumbies to drink water from, There are endless reserves to relocate these Brumbies. Public land belongs to all taxpayers! Public land is not owned by politicians! 3. How many Koalas are still being culled, have they planted more eucalyptus trees to feed the Koala population? Reference to Great Ocean Road! previously under Greg Hunt as the MP! Why are you politicians allowing the Koala Habitat clearance to make way for the NSW RMS project when there were alternate routes! 4.  Is Tourism important to politicians?,  Australian Primary Industry is now making Australia FAMOUS for SLAUGHTERING AUSTRALIAN ANIMALS.AND MARINE LIFE Read the petition comments, please. 5. Should Australia be well known for slaughtering animals and marine life? Animals/marine life are part and parcel to our environment. 6. Australia has endless raging bushfires yearly during the summers, these native animals they label PESTS to be slaughtered inside our National parks using excuses for vegetation damage is false! The raging bushfires are from overgrown vegetation and these animals help trim the overgrown vegetation. Its time you politicians see the advantages of having animals inside National Parks and conservation Parks. Stop labelling animals PESTS so your partner political parties have access to shoot them dead! or poison them DEAD! 7. The Great Barrier Reef is Australia's most important natural asset and you all turned a blind eye to the problems facing this asset. Instead of saving it, you allow mining in this nearby reef. EVERYONE KNOWS THIS IS A SADISTIC INHUMANE CRUEL ACT OF IGNORANCE! THE GREEDY POLITICIANS NEED TO RISE ABOVE YOUR ILL MISTAKES AND REVERSE THE DAMAGE IMMEDIATELY and DO NOT ALLOW MINING NEARBY THE GREAT BARRIER REEF!  ITS AN UGLY HOLE, UGLY EYESORE OF A PROJECT THAT SHOULD NEVER EVEN HAVE BEEN GIVEN APPROVAL! THIS IS CORUPT. 8. STOP POURING POISONOUS CHEMICALS INTO THE RIVERS! MAKE WAY FOR FRIENDLIER ENVIRONMENTAL GOVERNANCE THAT DOES CARE for Australia's natural assets, animal & marine life, natural land/marine environments without polluting it further with poison chemicals! 9. STOP THE KANGAROO CULL AUSTRALIA WIDE and Canberra by SHOOTERS! STOP IMMEDIATELY, you people that shoot innocent animals are so disgustingly barbaric its out of control in NSW, Canberra, OLD, WA, VIC. STOP IMMEDIATELY! The reasons for this slaughter in not justified! its a dated program that should be immediately terminated. These KANGAROOS are not on private pastures, its public land and they are living innocently in their own habitats. These animals belong to Australia, they belong to our natural environment, Primary Industry and Invasive animals Australia do not own our animals! Therefore have no right to do as they please towards our animals! 10. Why is Tasmania culling Wombats, issuing culling licences to kill these animals! Has this COUNTRY GONE ABSOLUTELY MAD? STOP LISTEN to the PEOPLE! 11. Looking for more animals to kill, Invasive Animals Australia, Invasive Animals NSW, next review is the DEER on their pest list pushed by the GREENS!, sweet innocent harmless DEERS Yes BAMBI, they now want to murder our DEERS! Shooters and farmers don't listen to INVASIVE ANIMALS AUSTRALIA! Shooters and farmers, don't listen to the GREENS PARTY!       Farms need to build safer greenhouses for their crops and seedlings. In Bio-diversity every animal co-exist. Foxes attack their cattle if the rabbit population is non existent. Farmers can protect their private farms! Why bring viruses into the city park reserves, we don't breed herds in the city to feed the population. Brumbies are part of the Snowy Mountains environment, they have been living there well over 180 years. Its turning into a Wild Horse Meat Industry by Primary Industry.     Koalas were brought into Great Ocean Road to become a tourist hotspot, then its all very hypocritical to cull them using excuses of starvation. Why have the rangers and environmental conservationists not replant eucalyptus trees for these Koalas! Why have you allowed the RMS to clear massive native vegetation to make way for the Pacific Hwy Road Extension when there were alternate routes available that doesn't require logging of eucalyptus tree habitats! Did you sell the timber from all this logging? The public needs all the details! its public environment!     Government run agencies, Invasive Animals Australia call themselves environmentalists, scientists, their excuses about saving bio diversity: save mosses, native plants, cattle pasture competing with tiny rabbits eating few pieces of grass!  What are you doing to the environment! Your actions are hypocritical! These agencies should retreat and make way for new agencies/councils that co-ordinate Australia wide re-homing of animals that farmers trap, remove humanely, transfer alive to local zoos, wildlife carers, wildlife organisations.    National parks can't even tidy up the overgrown shrubs inside their reserves, its the tiny rabbits and native animals that are helping them lawn their overgrown national park reserve shrub, weeds!     Its a national disgrace! 'Dead bunny rabbits', 'Wild Ducks wiped out from duck hunting in Victoria', 'murdered Kangaroos', 'murdered Brumbies', 'murdered Koalas', 'murdered Wombats' and other affected wildlife/birdlife/marine life poisoning and blowflies spreading RHDVK5, spreading Cyprinid herpesvirus 3 into lakes and rivers. Mining pollution from future mining operations near the Great Barrier Reef!                           The country is going backwards in 2017.                       The World is watching and they are alarmed!                                       ENOUGH IS ENOUGH

Petition to Singleton Council, General Manager Jason Linnane

New Council Pound for Singleton

There are deep concerns for the impounded pets at the Singleton Council Dog Pound. The Singleton Dog Pound is an old building that is exposed to the elements from the front. This present animal shelter was only ever meant to be a temporary facility. This place is very cold in the winter and extremely hot in the summer. There are 6 pen areas for the Dogs which are open to the cold winds and rain that can come through via the open front of the building. There is one dedicated isolation pen, and a cattery area which is enclosed.                                      _______________ At a meeting in 2016 local Advocates presented to Council and asked for : 1/ a barrier to stop the wind and rain from entering the front of the exposed building. 2/ allowing pets to be adopted straight from the Pound. 3/ allowing volunteers to help out and assist the Ranger.                                    _____________________ On June 14th 2017 a Singleton Councillor made a statement over social media .. " Just wanted to give you all an update.I have not had any luck with convincing anyone to spend money on some sort of barrier against wind and cold at the old pound. I am still pushing for our new animal shelter including some extras and have been guaranteed a proposal will come to council in September 2017.As far as re homing animals directly from the pound.I have been told that will not happen. A process/ procedure will be implemented shortly for the re homing of animals from another site that is registered. When people enquire they will be sent to the appropriate site.Sorry I haven't any better news."                                     ___________________ In July 2016 the General Manager Mr J Linnane was quick to commit to immediately improving the conditions endured by impounded animals in Singleton. Mr Linanne stated in 2016 that he "is determined to upgrade the facility to improve conditions in the short-term, and he did not rule out “outsourcing” the service in the future".. It's now June 2017, nearly one year on and still nothing has been actioned. Story link:                                ______________________ So - as you can clearly see from the Councillors update on June 14th 2017 the SINGLETON COUNCIL are not planning to help the pound animals anytime soon.. Singleton Council will vote on Monday June 19th 2017 night on a recommendation to increase the annual Mayoral fee by 70 per cent from the current $24,630 to $42,120.At the same time as Mayor Sue Moore will enjoy a pay rise Councillors will also see their fees increase from $11,290/year to $19,310. And yet they can't even buy some ❌ TARP ❌ to place across the front of the shelter so the animals are free from the COLD wind and rain :( All offers of help have fallen on deaf ears so far... Disgusting effort Singleton Council. Please sign and share.

Petition to Members of the Tasmanian Parliament

#kodi's law

An event that took place early December, between a German Shepherd,  and two young boys, who had to climb 2 fences to get into the area Kodi was...this property was owned by Vikki Phillips the owner of Kodi,  as a result one of the boys being airlifted to hospital with serious injuries. Kodi the German Shepherd, who was secured in his own backyard, suffered seven stab wounds, which resulted in huge vet bills,  and also suffers from emotional trauma, and has subsequently been classed by local authorities as a dangerous dog.  before this event happened Kodi was free to roam on his owners property but now has to be locked in a very small enclosed area which is a council requirement due to his Dangerous dog classification...Vikki has to put him in this "cage" then lock it, for up to 8 hours a day while she is at work. This lead to Kodi suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and his health suffered... After advice from the vets and dog trainers it was decided to put Kodi to sleep. he closed his eyes in the arms of his owner Vikki Phillips on 8th June 2017. now we need to change the laws so this never happens to our pets, so  signing this petition you will help this cause. Sign it Share it #kodislaw Laws need to change here in Tasmania so all dog owners do not have to go through the same thing as Vikki Phillips and her family have. In Tasmania we will be seeking an amendment to protect all dogs and their owners on their own property in the future.When we have the wording checked we will continued to update. we need this petition to show the government a change is needed feel free to join our Facebook group KODI'S ARMY

Petition to Mayor Liz Innes, Councillor Anthony Mayne, Councillor Phil Constable, Councillor Patrick McGinlay, Councillor Maureen Nathan, Councillor Robert Pollock OAM, Councillor Lindsay Brown, Councillor James Thomson, Councillor Jack Tait

Change time-share restrictions for dogs on Eurobodalla beaches to NSW School Holidays ONLY

The Eurobodalla Shire Council (ESC)  has time sharing arrangements in place for dogs on 'some' allocated beaches in the Shire. These time share arrangements CURRENTLY mean that for those beaches, dogs are prohibited from  access between 1st November to 30th April from 9am to 5pm.  That's 6 months of the year!!   Great start, to "sharing", but this does NOT serve the ageing rate-paying, VOTING residents of the Shire, many of whom have mobility issues that make walking during anything other than low tide,  very difficult, if not impossible.  It also does not serve busy parents or an increasing number of shiftworkers with dogs.  These limitations currently prevent many RESIDENTS and visitors from enjoying a beach walk with their best friend for six very long months.  We say that's not fair.Exercise for people AND dogs benefits the entire community.  It benefits the physical and mental health.   It creates key bonds between dogs and owners and creates a sense of belonging and community.  It helps dogs AND people socialise.  It creates healthier and happier environments for everyone.  It saves hospitals money by improving the health of the community.We acknowledge that Council view time sharing on applicable beaches as occuring during "peak periods".  However, realistically, peak periods for beach use is ONLY during NSW School Holidays.  Peak Period is NOT 6 months long from spring through to autumn.  Currently, when NSW schools are in, beaches really have very little use.Things have changed.  People who own dogs now consider them to be part of their family! Other laws are changing to be more pet friendly too. Look at the new strata management rules where you now cannot unreasonably prevent someone from having a pet in a unit. Look at retirement homes where you can now take pets with you. There are now many outdoor bars and cafes that encourage people to bring their furry family member.  ESC is still operating with a very outdated mindset and are NOT giving residents a fair go.We call upon the entire Eurobodalla Shire Council to PLEASE support a more realistic, workable and compassionate time sharing arrangement for both people AND dogs on our beaches.  One that suits the ratepayers as well as the visitors that are so important to this region.  Please change the November to April restrictions of dogs on allocated beaches and change them to apply ONLY during NSW School Holidays.
