This follows the Dubbo office of NPWS giving commercial kangaroo killing licences for very small acreages in the White Rocks Road area of Bathurst despite opposing advice from the local Bathurst office of NPWS and local science. The firearms ballistics questions inherent in such irresponsible action should be … Continue reading ]]> http://animaljusticeparty.org/npws-risks-human-safety-in-bathurst/feed/ 0 Sean the world famous koala http://animaljusticeparty.org/sean-the-world-famous-koala/ http://animaljusticeparty.org/sean-the-world-famous-koala/#comments Fri, 22 Aug 2014 12:44:41 +0000 http://animaljusticeparty.org/?p=522 Sean the koala has hit the headlines worldwide today after he was reported to Wildlife Victoria’s Emergency Response Service last night.

But bow hunters say their sport is being tarnished by the actions of a few reckless amateurs. Wildlife rescue organisation WIRES says it is seeing an increase in the number of native animals being shot with arrows, with devastating consequences.

“The animal is lame, sometimes the animal has been shot in the head, or in the body, hasn’t been killed, there’s usually … Continue reading ]]> http://animaljusticeparty.org/bow-and-arrow-attacks-on-wildlife-are-on-the-rise/feed/ 0 AJP Condemns Glenbog State Forest Wombat Massacre http://animaljusticeparty.org/ajp-condemns-glenbog-state-forest-wombat-massacre/ http://animaljusticeparty.org/ajp-condemns-glenbog-state-forest-wombat-massacre/#comments Tue, 19 Aug 2014 04:19:36 +0000 http://animaljusticeparty.org/?p=511 The Animal Justice Party of Australia condemns the actions of contractors employed by the Forestry Commission of NSW in burying alive up to 150 free-living bare-nosed wombats in the Glenbog State Forest in South-East NSW last week.

Despite being fully advised of the specific location of every wombat burrow in the Glenbog State Forest by highly experienced wombat rehabilitators, the contractors ignored the advice, hid the evidence of the advice, and intentionally graded over the homes of these iconic animals.
