Please spend a minute looking at this. It's 68 dead ducks, including seven
ducklings, found on Lake Buloke and Kerang wetlands on opening morning of
Victoria's duck hunting season, 19 March 2011.
Shot and abandoned were seven of the eight game species: Shoveler, Wood Duck,
Pacific Black Duck, Hardhead, Pink-eared Duck, Grey Teal and Chestnut Teal.
It's widely believed hunters leave them in order to continue shooting, as
they're limited to 10 ducks a day.
Also shot were coots, three Plumed Whistling-Ducks, a Grebe, and Grey Teal and
Pink-eared Duck ducklings. Also a Little Button-Quail.
I urge you to speak out about this hideous practice. Write to your MP, premier,
environment minister. Bird people of all people appreciate the value of the
wetlands and its creatures.
