Resources aside, just asking direct questions of vested interests is a good 
start. I have seen ABC TV news items about a kangaroo "plague" in Queensland as 
claimed by the kangaroo industry. The reporter was on location but the film 
footage obtained showed not many kangaroos present. I assume the reporter asked 
"where are they?"  Similarly with the shooters, I hope they were asked about 
the basis of their claims and their evidence? If not, surely it is just 
laziness on the reporter's part.
