Belconnen Roos - Current herding method

At 11.30 this morning I received a phone call from Greg out at BNTS who said they are now herding the kangas with vehicles, and also using the security guards. The security guards are pushing the kangas down towards the lake area from off the hill by shouting and clapping their hands.This is now an occupational health and safety issue as the security guards would have no kangaroo handling skills and what they are doing (as anyone who handles kangaroos knows) is inhumane. This is likely to freak the kangas and if one of the big bucks turns on a security guard he would not know what to do. I have reported this to the on duty ACT Workcover Inspector. I have his name and the time reported written down. Naomi
