AN­I­MALS RE­COVER

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

The last three an­i­mals that were in­jured in a dog at­tack at the Wildlife Habi­tat have been re­leased back into the gen­eral pop­u­la­tion. In the in­ci­dent in late Oc­to­ber seven wal­la­bies and kan­ga­roos were killed and 20 more were in­jured by dogs that en­tered the sa­van­nah en­clo­sure late at night. The in­jured an­i­mals had been re­ceiv­ing ad­di­tional ve­teri­nary care over the past two months, and have been pro­gres­sively re­leased back into the en­clo­sure when they were judged to have ad­e­quately re­cov­ered from their in­juries.
