To: CHIEF/TAMS/TCCS/relevant MINISTERS, PRIME MINISTER
STOP THE UNLAWFUL VIOLENT KILLING OF PROTECTED NATIVE KANGAROOS
Dear Ministers and Prime Minister, please end the annual unlawful violent killing of protected native kangaroos in the ACT by the government, and the 30+ permits handed out each year to property owners, and Australia wide. Please amend the Nature Conservation Act, Kangaroo Management Plan and Pests Control Management Strategy according to Wildlife Carers Group submissions. Please abolish the Eastern Grey Kangaroos Controlled Native Species Management Plan and the ag gag type/related sections from the Nature Conservation Act that allows the Government to unlalwfully kill Eastern Grey Kangaroos at any time without a licence that is driving our native Eastern Grey Kangaroos to extinction along with the infertility program, by altering their gene pools leaving young small Kangaroos to breed. Please remove and disallow the violent killing in the Code of Practice. Please amend Wildlife Carers Group Wildlife Rehabilitation Licence to include full term rehabilitation of all sick, injured and orphaned Eastern Grey Kangaroos, and other omitted native wildlife, include rescue, open licence-no expiry date, export licence, remove all TAMS (have changed their name or relevant Dept)/CFF conditions. Please legislate Wildlife Carers Group Animal Welfare Management Strategy. Please place Kangaroos on the critically endangered list. Please provide a public apology and a backdate for departmental error on Wildlife Carers Group Wildlife Rehabilitation Licence. Please provide a public apology and a compensation payout for defamation, vicious harassment, damages, for the unlawful entry and stealing of Wildlife Carers Group protected native wildlife, protected under the wildlife protection laws, and under the Animal Welfare Act against animal cruelty, unlawful killing and selling of wildlife by the rspca and tams. Please hand over the authority to deal with applications to kill protected native wildlife and Wildlife Rehabilitation Licences to Wildlife Carers Group.

This is an abuse of taxpayers money that cost over $200,000, and an abuse of the government and government department's positions, ignoring expert advice outside the government.

Native grasses are not threatened by the kangaroos, but by human activity, including toxic sprays.
ANIMAL WELFARE - Click on the links below, to view kangaroo cruelty and horror. Kangaroos are killed in an extremely inhumane manner. Legally kangaroos killed are required to be killed by a single shot to the brain. there are instances where kangaroos are not killed in this manner. As a result, the kangaroo is shot agonisingly in the jaw, neck or the body, flees in response and will suffer a prolonged and painful death.
These joeys are killed often by shooters smashing them into the ground, against tow bars of cars or with a metal pipe or other blunt instrument. Alternatively, when not caught, an out of pouch joey will be left to fend for itself and will generally die of predation, starvation or dehydration.This is not to mention the stress suffered by kangaroos from hearing shots being fired and from being chased down by shooters.

The kangaroo management plan is conjunctional, incompetent, and not based on any scientific facts.
The only objects that are causing the destruction of grasslands, woodlands, threatened species and ecosystems are tams staff and their shooters, the cattle they put into all the nature reserves after killing all the kangaroos in 2011 because the grass was too long, and the government that fails to listen to the experts, to end this unlawful violent, unnecessary killing that will drive our protected native Kangaroos to extinction.

We require the government department TAMS/TCCS (have changed their name or relevant Dept)authority who deal with applications to kill protected native species, and applications for the native wildlife rehabilitation licence to be removed from TAMS/TCCS or relevant Dept and handed over to Wildlife Carers Group.
We require that the Eastern Grey Kangaroos, along with other persecuted macropods and native wildlife to be placed on the Critically Endangered list, AUSTRALIA WIDE.
We require changes in the legislations/Acts and policies in the ACT, and Australia wide, to ensure that all protected native wildlife are protected and not be allowed to be killed.
Wildlife Carers Group Wildlife Rehabilitation Licence to include FULL TERM REHABILITATION OF SICK INJURED ORPHANED NATIVE EASTERN GREY KANGAROOS, AND ALL OTHER ENDANGERED NATIVE WILDLIFE THAT ARE CURRENTLY OMITTED FROM THE LICENCE.
The unlawful entry and stealing of my wildlife from my property by tams, the rspca and the police occurred as a result of me taking the Conservator of Flora and Fauna to court for the unlawful violent killing of the kangaroos/animal cruelty in 2012, to stop the unlawful violent killing and to have the Acts and policies that govern these policies changed. This action against me was more abuse of taxpayers money and vexatious by the government.
