AUSTRALIA: Calls for change to Victoria’s law to commercialise kangaroo culls
At the Puckapunyal army base in Victoria yesterday [Tuesday], ten professional shooters set out on an emergency cull of 15,000 kangaroos, leaving numerous voices to call for a change in the state's law that makes it illegal to use the marsupials for commercial gain. The cull was ordered to reduce the number of animals in the area after the Defence Department's poor management of the base's native population, which is trapped on the 45,000 hectare site by an electric fence, led to significant overbreeding. This led to suggestions that the animals were sick and starving through a lack of food. The cull will be conducted under Environment Australia and RSPCA guidelines; which mean that each shooter can kill only 100 kangaroos a day, and that they must also kill joeys in the pouches of dead females.
