Shooters to save Government money through hunting permission
ABC1, Canberra ABC News: 31 May 2012 07:03PM
Sporting shooters say they will save the Government millions when they are allowed into Kosciusko National Park to hunt feral animals. The scheme was unveiled by the NSW Government in return for minor party support for an electricity asset sell off. Hunting will be allowed in 79 of the state's 800 national parks and nature reserve. Field and game Australia are applauding the move. Christine Goonrey, National Parks Australia Council, said it means visitors won't be safe in the parks and her organisation is calling on Federal Minister Tony Burke to stop the process.
