Permit needed to shoot a roo
RECENTLY, I have been talking to a few people who have raised concerns about the shooting of local native fauna, in particular kangaroos.
Can I remind everyone that all native wildlife is protected under the Biodiversity Conservation Act 2016.
It is against the law to shoot a kangaroo for dog food or because it is on your property eating your crops, or because you think it is fun just to kill something.
Permits showing financial damages incurred have to be obtained for shooting to be lawful.
If you witness any unlawful killing it can be reported anonymously.
