Hi all
From what I can gather the Game section of the Dept. of Environment and Conservation shot the geese at Killalea State Park as they were considered to be a "threat" to agriculture. The shooter had to wait till the next day because of the bird watchers and had to be shown what species to shoot by an other Dept. in case he blasted the Swans. I think they left the Greylag Goose as just over the hill at Dunmore Lakes there are about 30 ferals not considered a threat to agriculture. I had been trying to get something done about the local population of Rose-ringed Parakeets, Indian Ringnecks, that have bred up from about 3 to 7 in 3 years but the Rural Land Protection Board, who "control" foxes etc, said they did not have the resources and if they became a real pest they still would not have the resources. They missed their chance as the roosting tree was blown down 6 months ago and the birds have scattered.
Cheers  Chris
