Sadistic attacks on kangaroos at Morisset Hospital
The sadistic atrocities occurring against our indigenous inhabitants - kangaroos - at Morisset hospital is totally shameful and horrendous. Why haven't these atrocities been stopped and the sadists captured? It is disgraceful that the Morisset kangaroos have been slaughtered for years and the only people to help are a handful of wildlife volunteers.
Sadistic attacks on kangaroos at Morisset Hospital
The sadistic atrocities occurring against our indigenous inhabitants - kangaroos - at Morisset hospital is totally shameful and horrendous. More than 100 have been horrifically massacred in blood-curdling ferocity, and people are worried for public safety?
Hoons have been entering the hospital grounds at night and running down the kangaroos. Why haven't these atrocities been stopped and the sadists captured?
Security guards at the Hospital contacted the Wildlife Rescue Service at 11pm in May 2008 at night after at least five adult kangaroos were killed, orphaning three joeys.
It is disgraceful that the Morisset kangaroos have been slaughtered for years and the only people to help are a handful of wildlife volunteers.
These ferals need to be caught and cut down. They could easily be motivated by people with vested interests in property development.
Developments erode living conditions for kangaroos – and corruption abounds
In 1900, 1300 acres on the western side of Lake Macquarie were reserved for the construction of a psychiatric hospital. The Morisset section of the State Conservation Area in particular has an extensive degraded landscape formerly used for farming and grazing. Removal of livestock from this area is resulting in a proliferation of agricultural and environmental weeds.
2005 - After a four year fight, residents opposing a $90 million development at Morisset failed to stop it going ahead. Lake Macquarie council gave the Johnson Property Group approval to proceed with stage one of its development on the former St John of God site, meaning it could develop 31 residential lots.
2005 Lake Macquarie Council received an application from Terry Lawler, the administrator of Koompahtoo, to rezone about 100 hectares of the 850 hectare site original given to the Aboriginal land council by the State Government. The rezoning of the former Morisset hospital land would allow for the construction of up to 1,800 houses.
Lake Macquarie Mayor Greg Piper was going to write to the New South Wales Planning Minister outlining his concerns about the proposed $200 million Trinity Point marina near Morisset.
August 2008 - Councillors resolved to prepare a draft amendment to the city's local environment plan, paving the way for 305 houses to be built on land surrounding the course.
The Koompahtoo Land Council was plagued by corruption allegations in 2009, after it won the state's largest land grant, 850 hectares near the former Morisset hospital site.
Kangaroo “cull” for public safety?
June 2010 is was reported that kangaroos may have to be culled at Morisset amid rising fears for “public safety”, with the animals said to be increasing at an unsustainable rate. With kangaroos going further into nearby residential areas than ever before , authorities have urged the public to stop feeding them. The fact that residential areas are expanding is ignored!
The idea of "culling" kangaroos at Morisset for "fears of public safety" is deadly twisted logic and irrational. Why shoot the victims?
With Australia's population growth, the unsustainable growth comes from creatures on two legs that aren't macropods! Our own population growth is forcing extinctions, stealing habitat and livelihoods from native species.
Kangaroos have proved their suitability to Australia through evolution and millions of years of existence here.
Kangaroos are the victims of the public, not the threat
Lake Macquarie MP and mayor Greg Piper said he had heard anecdotal reports of offenders bragging at a Morisset pub (Dec 2010) about killing kangaroos in the hospital grounds. Two men entered the pub with kangaroo scrotums and a fight erupted after some people took offence.
Humans are encroaching, and the safety issues should be about kangaroos being mutilated and run down, not the contrary! The police must arrest the perpetrators, and the hospital must ensure the safety of all living residents on their grounds. As psychologists say, sadists who torture animals end up being criminals against humans, so the public are not safe while they are loose!
The police need to make sure the criminals are arrested and charged with the highest possible penalties for violating protected animals, and the hospital must upgrade their security and ensure the animals grazing on their grounds are protected.
Both male & female kangaroos and their helpless babies have been subjected to acts of shocking depravity.
Up to $2000 in cash for information leading to a conviction is offered.
