municipal services and rspca accepted Code of Practice for the
'Humane Destruction of Kangaroos in the ACT', and using their strict
welfare guidelines results in. Judge for yourself what their humane
slaughters, including darting, are really all about under their
accepted Code of Practice, and decide for yourselves how humane
their slaughters are, following their own, and rspca strict
guidelines. These unqualified people on the advisory committees, are
being paid a high wage, using your hard earned taxpayers money, to
torture animals to death, and drive wildlife to extinction. More

petition - Save ALL the Kangaroos, to save ALL our native roos.
The unnecessary torturing of our native
Eastern Grey Kangaroos commenced on Tuesday 5 May 2009, behind our
backs by defence and tams on the defence majura firing site, where
they claimed that they had already killed over 3,000 kangaroos, in
approx. one and a half weeks.
Wildlife Carers Group was still waiting
to hear from defence to go in and inspect the site, the kangaroos,
and to do an individual head count of them.
Since we have not been in there to do
our count, we don't know what the true population is in there.
On Thursday 14 May 2009, NSW Animal
Liberation served defence with a court injunction, which the
Conservator of Flora and Fauna responded to, and became the
A 4 day hearing began on Tuesday 2 June
2009 to Friday 5 June 2009.
Wildlife Carers Group/Nora Preston,
Founding President, attended the 4 full day hearings.
On day 1 of the hearing, defence
withdrew, because they didn't want to have to pay the legal costs,
if they lost.
Unfortunately NSW animal liberation lost
The Tribunal erred where they failed to
note the evidence by tams, that both tams and defence enter the
fenced site either two or three times a week, to herd kangaroos out,
causing the deteriorated states of this area themselves, with the
damages not caused by the kangaroos.
File Photos show a natzi german camp in
canberra, at majura naval base, replacing the jewish bodies with our
native Eastern Grey kangaroos, that were needlessly tortured to
death in 2008.
The roos were taken to majura naval
base, their precious lives wasted, driving them to extinction,
autopsied and thrown into a pit.
don fletcher/tams, writes in the
kangaroo management plan march 2009, or tams website, that they
autopsied some of the bodies, and they found that the roos had some
body waste, not as fat as he thinks they should've been.
No wildlife, hold the same fat content,
that your domestic pet does.
They have more muscle, than fat, and are
slim, it is their natural body weight, they are in the wild, not
sitting in your lounge room being pampered and fattened.

This destructive, menacing grassland
group/commissioner's/office of the commissioner for sustainability
and the environment ACT, dept, will have to be urgently dismantled,
with their report/recommendations shredded.
This report is fictitious, committing
unlawful and deliberate acts of fraud, and wanting to continue to
commit unlawful unnecessary, acts of animal cruelty, to drive our
native wildlife to extinction.
Continuing to pay taxpayers money to
this dept, is aiding in putting this state into deficit, which this
state and country is already in.
Saving This planet, our environment, our
eco system, restoring sanity, harmonious non violent, humane living,
preventing wildlife extinction and climate change, has top priority,
OVER saving jobs for people such as these government advisers, who
are destroying this planet through no expertise or knowledge in
these important matters.
Thank you very much for your assistance
with Wildlife Carers Group, it is greatly appreciated.
You can help restore nurturing, living
in harmony with our native wildlife, prevent extinction to our
native wildlife, end unlawful acts of animal cruelty and violence in
our society with this information below, by exposing this
government's advisers, the small minority of horse owners (not all
horse owners have these misconceived views about our native roos),
who have no expertise or knowledge in wildlife matters, by showing
the valid alternatives to unnecessary butchering of our native
Eastern Grey Kangaroos, who have as much right to live on this land,
as the horseowners horses do, without being slaughtered to death,
and the facts on who really is to blame for the destruction of
'Roos push horses out' The Chronicle,
24/3/09 - What expertise and knowledge do these small minority of
horse owners have in Kangaroos, wildlife, habitat, the eco system,
animal welfare, environment, climate change.
Unfortunately, the reality is, that pet
horses are a very expensive pet to own, you can't expect to just put
them out to pasture, and let them feed themselves, you have to buy
them food, ensure that they are fed a well balanced diet, just as
you would for any other pet you own, along with very expensive costs
for veterinary care.
Native macropods will remain in these
paddocks, to maintain a healthy well balanced eco system, that live
quite harmoniously with horses, and other hoofed animals.
The minority of the people/horse owners,
with their misconceived views about our roos, are going to have to
learn to do the same.
The horse paddocks deteriorating sites
are also being blamed on the kangaroos, instead of realising the
fact, that it is indeed the hoofed animals that have deteriorated
the sites, and eaten them dry, and not the kangaroos, who are soft
footed, and assist in the regeneration of vegetation, through their
grazing and natural fertilisation.
Incidentally, farmers receive a
government subsidy to save and protect wildlife on their properties
which some are abusing, by continuing to slaughter our native
Without the Eastern Grey Kangaroos, and
other macropods, everything will dry up and die off, however, even
they can't work their magic, where the hoofed horses, cattle, sheep,
have totally destroyed the sites.
The horses, and other hoofed animals,
need to be be rotated more often, out of these sites, to allow these
sites to rest with only the kangaroos left there to graze, so that
the roos can encourage the regeneration of the vegetation through
their grazing, and their natural fertilisation.
The Rose Cottage horse paddock and the
Weston horse paddock that I have visited, have both been destroyed
by the horses, and not by the macropods, I would say that the other
horse paddocks have the same problem.
I was in touch with Jane Hedges last
year, which resulted in my visit to the rose cottage horse paddock
on 2/9/08, with one of my 5 day work experience students, when we
counted 193 kangaroos, which contradicted the rspca count of 2000
(nicely rounded up, but unrealistic) figure.
We will be visiting the site again to do
a recount of the mobs, however, my quick visit to rose cottage,
before the end of March 2009, showed a drastic drop in numbers.
The kangaroos will not stay on the sites
and allow themselves to starve to death, this is a ridiculous and
fraudulent statement to make, they will leave and find greener
The dead roos found on these sites would
more than likely have been hit by cars, that crawled away, and were
either finished off by the rangers and left there to rot, or
unfortunately, slowly died suffering from their injuries.
Explore the reality, talk to us, before
making such dangerous, fictitious statements, building up
unwarranted hate for our macropods, and encouraging unlawful acts of
animal cruelty and violence in our society.
If it wasn't for the roos, there would
be absolutely no vegetation at all on these sites.
These government advisers, and small
minority of horse owners, are like a terminally ill disease, a
cancer spreading extremely fast, that will be irreversible to our
environment, wildlife, Eco system, impact on climate change, unless
the government advisers are cut out, and permanently removed from
These government advisers, and small
minority of horse owners, are a menace to society, and are not only
attempting to wipe out our wildlife, but are also going to wipe out
the human race with their ongoing fictitious reports, if the
government doesn't urgently sever their relationship with them.
I began rehabilitating ALL native
wildlife, including Eastern Grey Kangaroos, in the early 1980's,
when I also educated the public in our wildlife, wildlife
rehabilitation, wildlife habitat, and conservation.
I later became a bird bander, and was
also on COG's committee, mid to late 1980's.
I was also very active in identifying
birds present, migratory, mapping/location, population, etc. for
their COG Canberra Bird Book.
I was involved in introducing the bird
banding scheme for National Parks and Wildlife amongst rehabilitated
wildlife before their release, and was looking forward to extending
the banding scheme to other species of rehabilitated wildlife, in
order to track their movement, and survival rate, after being
rehabilitated, which also assists on the success or failure of the
I have already requested that Wildlife
Carers Group be involved in re opening the banding scheme amongst
rehabilitated wildlife before their release.
On Sunday 20/3/09, I made a phone call
and was informed that the Kangaroo butchering had already commenced,
on Saturday night, 21/3/09, in Holt, before the kangaroo management
draft's deadline has been finalised on 11 May 2009.
This is an example on how untrustworthy,
this government and their advisers are.
You cannot believe anything they say
about the kangaroos, the native grasslands, etc.
While Maxine Cooper was being
interviewed, about how important our native grasslands are, with
Simon corbell, attorney general, beside her, accusing the Eastern
Grey Kangaroos of eating everything, I couldn't help but notice how
long the grass was in the background, from where she was being
interviewed, that our Eastern Grey Kangaroos, had supposedly eaten
down to nothing.
These native grasslands are being mowed
down by government department employees, exposing our endangered
striped legless lizards, earless dragon, along with other endangered
species, and killing them.
Our Native Eastern Grey Kangaroos are
also amongst our endangered species.
Please note, that they have, for now,
dropped their science fiction, that the kangaroos have an impact on
Eastern Grey Kangaroos have no impact on
our native grasslands, or native species that live in the native
grasslands, only the people do, who have an extremely destructive
effect on our native grasslands, our environment, our native
wildlife, our Eco system.
More unlawful acts of fraud committed
sent to the media for media releases, in reports, to attempt to send
the public into hysteria.
When the government feels that they have
been defeated by us, they send in maxine cooper, to commit fraud,
about the native grasslands, and whatever other fiction, they can
think up, so that they can try to succeed in having their cruel,
unlawful, unnecessary, blood bath.
They attempt to manipulate the media and
the minority of the public, who actually believe them, to commit
their unlawful acts of animal cruelty, and add to the climate change
disasters, by driving our very important native wildlife to
extinction, upsetting the balance of our Eco system, through their
deliberate misrepresentation and acts of fraud.
At a time of recession, this government
is wasting money on cruel massacres of our wildlife, and are
encouraging unlawful acts of animal cruelty and violence.
Alternatives to wasting taxpayers money
on unlawful slaughter and cruel violence, that will save our
environment, native wildlife, prevent further devastation through
climate change, and restore a healthy well balanced Eco system:
~* URGENTLY dismantle
Commissioner/Office of the Commissioner for sustainability and the
environment ACT, and shred their fictitious report, saving taxpayers
hard earned money, aiding to prevent placing this state/county into
~* spend money on developing safe
corridors for our wildlife to avoid road collisions/kills.
~* spend money on developing/modifying
the shu roo, that emits a noise to warn wildlife off the roads, so
that it will work at any speed, and have free compulsory fittings to
all vehicles, bikes, motor bikes, to prevent road collisions/kills.
~* spend this precious money on
declaring and promoting the entire ACT as a wildlife sanctuary, and
nurture ALL of our native wildlife.
~* spend taxpayers money wisely, on
copyright Wildlife Carers Group submitted/proposed City Kangaroo
Park/Wildlife Sanctuary, with Wildlife Carers Group, on the bnts
site, that will also be an educational facility in wildlife, with
rehabilitating enclosures for injured wildlife, and the only
wildlife hospital in the ACT, a huge tourist attraction that will
attract millions of dollars in revenue to the ACT.
~* cut out, and permanently remove these
misleading, misrepresenting government advisers.
~* remove the authority from
tams/conservator in making decisions in wildlife rehabilitation
licence, killing licences, wildlife matters, and place them under
Wildlife Carers Group, to prevent any further fatalitities,
devastation, destruction, unlawful acts of fraudulent reports,
unlawful acts of animal cruelty, wildlife extinction, and restore
Wednesday 18/3/09, Canberra Times, page
18, Editorial, in a block, under a heading The Canberra Times, to
serve the national city and through it the nation, no name added to
this article, heading 'Shooting roos is a sad necessity', and then
on the same page, an article written by julian robinson in
narrabundah, title 'Do roos rule roost?'.
What expertise and knowledge do these
people have in roos, the environment, animal welfare, wildlife, the
eco system, climate change?
These types of misleading articles are
helping to drive our native wildlife to extinction, encouraging
unlawful acts of animal cruelty, violence.
Explore the facts, rather than listening
to science fiction by the government's advisers, who have no
expertise or knowledge in wildlife issues, and who should've been
terminated from their jobs 20 years ago, and who now must be
stripped of any authority to make decisions in these areas, who are
also aiding in our economy downfall/recession.
'Do roos rule the roost?' article by
julian robinson, narrabundah. Yes they should, because of all the
good they do in restoring the destroyed habitat. The kangaroos still
have main predators.
'Shooting roos is a sad necessity'
article, no name, talks about the government refusing to give
licences to kill kangaroos around canberra, and at majura naval base
and bnts site.
The government did issue licences to
kill, unlawfully, and they were butchered to death, some left
suffering with severe injuries to slowly die, committing unlawful
acts of animal cruelty on both sites in 2007 and 2008.
The kangaroos were not starving, and are
still not starving on these sites, or any other sites in the ACT.
34 licences to torture our native
Eastern Grey Kangaroos to death, were issued in 12 months.
The grass is so high, the roos are
concealed, the bnts site can be extended for the roos, and turned
into a Copyright Wildlife Carers Group City Kangaroo Park/Wildlife
Sanctuary, as proposed by Wildlife Carers Group, with Wildlife
Note, that the photos presented of the
bnts site by don fletcher/tams, showed an area that had no growth on
it, which was blamed on the roos fenced in there.
This area photographed was actually the
permanent road track, that the defence and tams vehicles had worn
My photo showed how long the grass was
in there, where the roos were grazing, and in fact were concealed by
the long grass.
Of course this photo, along with our
copyright city Kangaroo Park/Wildlife Sanctuary, and other
alternatives, was never submitted by defence, maxine cooper, or
other government advisers to the chief minister, as requested, to
avoid the cull.
These government advisers are deceitful,
and so is the roo management plan, and cannot be believed. Only the
small minority, namely the government advisers, some horse owners,
want the roos tortured to death.
We are of the majority, who want to stop
the unlawful and unnecessary acts of animal cruelty, and the killing
of our native Eastern Grey Kangaroos, and the rest of our native
wildlife, preventing extinction. Therefore the roo killing will not
In majura, the kangaroos can leave, they
will not stay in the one place if they are starving, this
information by the government is science fiction, and is
deliberately misleading the media and the public, which is also
unlawful, committing fraud.
The photos that you will see showing the
yellow box gum, in this kangaroo management draft, on the website,
(the photo doesn't appear to be in the hard copy draft), where don
fletcher is attempting to accuse the roos for being responsible for
the dryness under these trees, is not due to our native Eastern Grey
Culling is not humane, therefore it is
unlawfully committing acts of animal cruelty, and is not necessary.
Yes, these government advisers do hate
kangaroos, and the rest of our wildlife, which is why they resort to
repeated deceit and continued science fiction about our wildlife.
These government advisers have the
mentality that you cannot have wildlife living with humans.
The majority have already spoken, who
live in the ACT, and do want to commute with the kangaroos, and the
rest of the wildlife, and do not want the kangaroos unlawfully, and
unnecessarily cruely culled.
They are not in plague proportions, it
only appears so, because they have lost their habitat, so we can see
more of them, and although it is great to see them, it is extremely
sad that they have lost so much of their habitat through
mismanagement by tams/conservator, and other government advisers.
They have not increased 100% as
suggested by stanhope, more deceit fed to him by his advisers.
In all fairness to our Eastern Grey
Kangaroos, Question what were the circumstances behind this roo
jumping/crashing through a window, on 10 march 2009, in Garran, was
he/she chased/harassed by a pet, (sounds like their pet dog was
unlawfully roaming uncontrolled, and may have been the culprit that
sent this poor native animal into this frightful frenzy) a person,
to be in such a frenzy, that the poor animal jumped through a
Imagine the injuries that this poor
animal sustained, the shock he/she was put through, he/she would've
been extremely dazed, and yet this resident owner, brags in placing
this poor frightened, shocked and severely injured animal into a
head lock, and dragging this poor severely injured animal down the
hall way, throwing him/her into the reserve, bleeding from his/her
wounds, instead of calling us out for help/advice.
These are deliberate acts of animal
cruelty, failing to call for assistance, failing to have the animal
treated for his injuries.
All dogs are unpredictable, Pet dogs
need to be kept restrained, on a leash, in order to protect not only
our wildlife, but other pets, people, and in fact for their own
safety as well.
Free roaming dogs, uncontrolled dogs
even with its owner, can end up being injured, lost, as it crawls
away with its injuries, to suffer a prolonged death, whether it has
been hit by a car, attacked by another person because it has caused
a nuisance, or killed someone else's own pet in their own property.
The roos presence did not contaminate
the water at googong dam in 2004, (not 1994 as incorrectly printed),
nor did the roos presence threaten to contaminate the water at
googong dam, they eat grass, grass and other weeds grow and live in
the dam, that was another act of fraud.
The unlawful, unnecessary acts of animal
cruelty was committed, solely because of the surrounding residents
complaints, who did not want native wildlife/Eastern Grey Kangaroos
on their properties.
I believe I have covered the rest of the
article above about the grasslands, but I can repeat, the kangaroos
do not have an impact on the native grasslands, or other wildlife,
only the destructive, uneducated, people do.
At the same time as reporting these
misleading articles for the public to read in the Canberra Times, by
the 2 misinformed, misrepresenting authors, (unknown, and julian
robinson from narrabundah), encouraging cruelty and unnecessary
torturing of our kangaroos to death, the same dated Canberra Times
18/3/09, which is totally inconsistent with the previous articles,
then placed a lift out 'Earth Hour' by WWF/Canberra Times, when the
Canberra Times are finally recognising the fact, and are warning the
public, that, 'one-third of Australia's macropods are threatened or
endangered...in combination with existing threats global warming
will push some species over the edge'.
This is the vital information that these
government department advisers ignore, climate change are already
having a devastating impact on our wildlife, driving ALL of them to
extinction, in the ACT, in Australia, Worldwide, and it is higher
than just one-third, without these government department advisers
adding to it, by deliberately misrepresenting and misleading the
current government, the media and the public, with their deceit,
about our wildlife matters, that they have absolutely no expertise
or knowledge on.
To this government's advisers, the
definition of 'management' means 'cull - torture to death', and
'drive our native wildlife to extinction', because they are of the
view, that you cannot have wildlife living with people.
The majority that live in the ACT, live
here to commute with wildlife, and want to nurture them, the
minority who want to torture our wildlife to death, need to be re
educated, with facts, and not fiction.
If they don't want to be re educated,
then the small minority can always go and live in a city interstate,
instead of attempting to destroy the bush capital for the majority
that live here, who wish to maintain the bush capital, save and
protect our native roos, along with the rest of our wildlife, and
end unlawful, unnecessary acts of animal cruelty/killing, violence,
in our society.
The government is failing to keep the
pre election promises of change, by handing over the advisory
positions to the people who have the expertise and knowledge in
wildlife matters, such as myself/Wildlife Carers Group, which also
includes the decision making on what goes on the wildlife
rehabilitation licence, that still lacks the full term
rehabilitation of sick, injured, orphaned native Eastern Grey
Kangaroos, and ALL other native wildlife, in order to avoid any
further acts of fraudulent reports committed, to prevent any further
unlawful acts of animal cruelty committed, to prevent the extinction
of our native wildlife, etc, in order to provide protection to ALL
our native wildlife.
It's still the same people, with no
expertise or knowledge in Eastern Grey Kangaroos, other macropods,
wildlife, the eco system, the environment, conservation, and how to
prevent climate change, advising the government, who have again,
gone over the top.
IF WE LOOK AFTER OUR WILDLIFE, OUR
WILDLIFE WILL LOOK AFTER US

4/6/08 - I spoke to defence, apparently
Liz Cosson was unavailable and asked Larry Robbins replacement for
the next 5 weeks, to return my phone call. He denies that they are
looking into slaughtering any more of our native kangaroos at the
majura defence site.
I further questioned him into the
invasive collars on the roos, to which he replied they are not
I argued that it is and is in breach of
animal welfare, they should only be using small ear tags on the
I issued him with a warning that the
invasive collars are to be removed immediately, and replaced with
the smaller ear tags.
I further warned him of the inhumane,
incompetence and negligence that occurred on the bnts site against
our native kangaroos, failing to provide the animals with a warm,
safe, soft recovery area, that opened up to an enclosure, which in
turn then slowly opened up back into the larger enclosure.
I requested a site visit, inspection and
kangaroo count at majura.
defence paid out $470,000 of taxpayers
money to inhumanely, unnecessarily slaughter our native Eastern Grey
Kangaroos on the bnts site. Check out national ABC media release
2/6/08 - defence say they have finished
inhumanely, unnecessarily butchering our native Eastern Grey
Kangaroos and have commenced to dismantle the newly erected fences,
the rspca, who don't know what they are doing, can't recognise
native wildlife when they see it, can't recognise whether or not an
animal is starving or not, and don't care, claim that the
unnecessary, inhumane slaughter was humanely done, defence say they
are now ready to commence stage 2 of the brutal cold blooded murder
on the Majura naval site.
We should also note, that more fraud was committed when defence,
tams, etc, all the so called experts in this brutal unnecessary
slaughter, when they claimed that there were no joeys between March
I rub my eyes, and I still see all those
tiny young joeys hopping around after their mothers, the one that
was locked out of the killing pen, cruelly penned in with out their
mothers, mothers milk, food, water, waiting for their cold blooded
murder, starving for 3 days, before their inhumane end came.
29/5/08 - wildcare have been quickly
changing their website, do you think that the world who signed their
petition will remember that wildcare misled them when their header
on this site linking to their petition, and vice versa, claimed that
'they don't have to die' for their insisting proposed translocation?
The world will certainly remember the horror of the inhumane process
of herding, etc, for the translocation that they witnessed thanks to
wildcare have collected $1,121.55, from
the public, claiming that it is for materials for those who are
protecting the beloconnen roos. Currently, That would still be
defence, except that they are not protecting them, they are
slaughtering them, and cruelly placing large invasive collars onto
them through an inhumane process for research.
So far, Any money paid out by me, and
going towards saving these defence kangaroos, has been forked out of
my own pocket.
