It seems that people are not aware of the devastating wildfires that ripped through those Nth Qld properties a little while ago. Vast areas of grassland were burnt. It was big news in Qld at the time, but perhaps didn't get an airing further afield.

The cattle don't have to die of starvation. Good farmers work

is living off cattle and other livestock.

It's very disappointing to see the RSPCA quoted. They are out of line
supporting poor farming practice and promoting the suffering of birds
and other wildlife in the national parks.
