The recent tragedy on Queensland's
Fraser Island has resulted in what
would appear to be an over-reaction
from the Queensland Government and
the Parks and Wildlife service in
ordering immediate culling of the
native Australian Dingoes.
The Australian Aboriginal made legal
representation to prevent culling,
only to have their case thrown out.
ANIMAL PROTECTION is concerned about
the overreaction of the authorities,
it might have been more appropriate
if the development on Fraser Island
had been contained,then the tourist
population would have been able to
co-esist with the native animal
Tourists for decades have delighted
in being close to these wild animals,
even to the extent of putting out
food for them,so is it any wonder
that the native dogs have been getting
closer and closer to the humans.
This latest tragedy regrettably was
always going to happen,and will
probably not be the last unless
tourist operators have a major
rethink of how they can live in
harmony with nature.
