Good news if you live in NSW, as I do, from July 1st you get an 18%
increase in your electricity bill and as a trade off you get to keep 10
metres from a bloke (must be over 12 years of age) with a gun in your
favourite NP. A win win all round really - unless you are a Topknot Pigeon.
Here is a link to the Game and Feral Animal Control Amendment Bill 2009 and
below it a listing of birds and animals included in the bill.$FILE/b2009-031-d10-House.pdf
