Roo cull re­jected

Kyabram Free Press - - NEWS -

KAN­GA­ROO cull cam­paign­ers over the Mur­ray River have had a set­back.

A for­mal mo­tion to in­ves­ti­gate the need for a cull, specif­i­cally be­tween Moama and De­niliquin, has been re­jected by the NSW gov­ern­ment.

One Deni lo­cal, Don Ward, ex­pressed his opin­ion at the de­ci­sion as ‘‘you have to won­der what rock (politi­cians) are un­der. Ev­ery­thing out here is de­cided by some­one who has no idea. Do we have to have some­one killed for some­thing to be done?’’

Cam­paign­ers were told that ‘‘tar­geted kan­ga­roo culling along ma­jor high­ways was likely to have lim­ited ben­e­fits due to the ten­dency of kan­ga­roos to move land­scape. Road­side culls also raise sig­nif­i­cant public safety and lo­gis­ti­cal is­sues.’’
