Wildlife car­ers’ li­cence

The West Australian - - LETTERS -

The McGowan Gov­ern­ment’s pro­posal to in­tro­duce li­cens­ing of vol­un­teer wildlife car­ers is out­ra­geous, demon­strat­ing how far re­moved from re­al­ity our politi­cians are.

I fail to com­pre­hend the ne­ces­sity to charge vol­un­teer car­ers $250 for the priv­i­lege of serv­ing the com­mu­nity.

One of our car­ers is an in­valid pen­sioner who man­ages to re­turn wildlife to the bush af­ter their re­cov­ery. She doesn’t turn up in a flash ve­hi­cle.

They’re just ev­ery­day peo­ple out there at the coal face, sav­ing money and the wildlife.

This move will evolve into yet an­other gov­ern­ment agency and more taxes.

John Bain, South Bun­bury
