Dear Ministers and Prime Minister, please end the daily & annual unlawful violent killing of protected native kangaroos in the ACT by the government & 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. ‘....anyone who intentionally tortures a dog or cat is a threat to public safety, and should be dealt with severely," DeSteph said in a statement....DeSteph told ABC News he plans to send the legislation to other state lawmakers and work with national animal welfare groups to get the law introduced across the country.
There have been studies that show a connection between animal cruelty and many other crimes, from drug and firearm offenses to battery and sexual assault, according to the Humane Society....’
The same applies to Kangaroos and all other animals, the entire animal kingdom, not just cats and dogs.
The Government’s proposed Animal Welfare Bill should be citing the same as above to immediately stop the Kangaroo killings to arrest and lock up the Government officials responsible for the Kangaroo killings since 2004-2019. The Animal Welfare Bill cannot be in compliance with the Government, the Government has to be in compliance with the Animal Welfare Bill that must immediately stop the Kangaroo killings, including all other animals. https://wildlifecarersgroup.wordpress.com/2019/01/13/wildlife-carers-group-submission-animal-welfare-legislation-amendment-bill-2019-closes-7-2-19/

Please declare the ACT a Kangaroo and Wildlife Sanctuary. Eastern Grey Kangaroos have already been unlawfully driven to extinction in most areas of the ACT unlawfully genetically altered through mass killings and the infertility program.

An abuse of rate/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.

How it will be delivered

Possibly all 3


Reasons for signing

  • I think it's disgusting. Enough kangaroos are killed by cars without a bunch of yahoos let loose in our reserves. Do not kill the kangaroos
  • Deplorable cruelty and a national disgrace.
  • Kangaroos are on track to extinction. Why is it that Australia has the world's worst record for mammal extinction? The kangaroo slaughter that is ongoing and relentless is the largest slaughter of land-based wildlife on the planet. Shame on Australian politicians for allowing this!!!
