Cows ordered out of park
COWS grazing in the Alpine National Park in Victoria have been put on notice by the Federal Government that their time is up. Federal Environment Minister Tony Burke has ordered the cows out of the park by April 8. In January, the Victorian government reintroduced cattle grazing in the national park as part of a scientific research trial. Mr Burke said he had been trying to get information as to why this issue was not referred for an environmental assessment. ‘‘ We have cattle stomping all over areas of national significance,’’ he said.
