On smh.com.au:

The introduction of hunting in national parks will be delayed until at least June after an investigation found evidence of alleged illegal activity by a senior executive of the Game Council NSW, the taxpayer-funded body which is supposed to oversee the program.

Premier Barry O’Farrell told parliament on Thursday afternoon he had ordered a review of the governance of the Game Council, which regulates hunting in NSW.

Mr O’Farrell said hunting in national parks would not begin until the government had received the review, which is due by May 31.

Mr O’Farrell said the review was prompted by the report of an investigation into alleged illegal hunting by two game Council employees on a property in outback NSW.

The NSW Government's plan to allow amateur hunters into national parks has been put on hold for several more months because of concerns about the body that would run the program.

The Game Council's acting head, Greg McFarland, was suspended last month after it was revealed police were investigating him for alleged animal cruelty and illegal hunting over the killing of a feral goat.

Fluoro sleeping bags/bivi bags should be mandated for M9.

From WIRES:

WIRES is seeing an increase in reports of injuries by firearms to native species since the announcement to allow recreational hunting in NSW National Parks. This red-necked wallaby joey came to a WIRES carer after his mother was shot and killed. It would appear that some hunters are under the impression they can kill native animals in our National Parks.

The National Parks Association has already handed over thousands of signatures protesting the decision to allow recreational hunting in NSW National Parks. WIRES is seeing an increase in reports of injuries by firearms to native species since the announcement of this decision. This red-necked wallaby joey came to care after his mother was shot and killed. It would appear that recreational hunters are under the impression they already have the green light to shoot in National Parks.

Fark, this hunting thing has gone too far. Even the kangaroos have become red-necked and have started shooting their families.
