Can the South Australian wombat cull be avoided?

MML

Marie Wynan, Director of the Wombat Protection Society of Australia & founder of Jarake Wildlife Sanctuary, joins Michael to discuss whether this week’s reported culling of southern hairy-nosed wombats on the Yorke Peninsula possibly be avoided.

 

Under SA regulations, the department said, landholders can apply for a permit to destroy native wildlife “where those animals are damaging, or are likely to damage, the environment, crops, stock, property or environmental amenity, or are posing a safety risk or hazard to people or industry”.
