Kangaroo pet-food trial
07 September 2017
Ms RYAN — I call on the government to provide certainty to landholders by making the kangaroo pet-food scheme ongoing. Landholders across my region are concerned that the government plans to do away with the trial, which was introduced by the former coalition government, when it expires in March next year. The government should also examine the feasibility of including deer in the scheme. Deer are becoming a major problem, with landholders in the Strathbogie Ranges now telling me that they are seeing deer on their properties. I again urge the government to make permanent the kangaroo pet-food trial and to examine extending it to include deer.
