Defence begins kangaroo cull

Updated

Victorian soldiers could be 바카라사이트fighti우리카지노ng for the first time against the country’s last marsupial.

The bushmeat has been illegal since the 1940s and remains a popular delicacy in parts of Victoria.

But with beef meat banned again, it is now under scrutiny by conservationists.

A total of 12,000 koalas have been shot at between 1996 and 2014.

Victoria Parks Minister Michael Eades says it is an important step forward.

“The koala is one of the last remaining species left in Victoria, and it’s our job to ensure that it is protected to the last drop of water,” he said.

“We’re certainly pleased to get this milestone out of the way.”

A new koala study group from the University of South Australia is also working on reintroducing the koalas to rural areas.

But even in Victoria, this could mean some lost wildland habitat, with koala deaths rising every year.

Mr Eades says in Victoria, culls are the appropriate use of the cullable koala.
