A 54 year old Wedderburn man received a 12 month good behaviour bond and was ordered
to pay $218 in costs after pleading guilty to killing a kangaroo without a permit. The case
was heard on 4th September, 2014. No conviction was recorded.
A DEPI wildlife officer said the man shot and killed an Eastern Grey Kangaroo at his property
in December 2013. “Kangaroos are classified as protected wildlife under the Wildlife Act,
1975 and it is an offence to destroy protected wildlife unless you have an authority to control
wildlife permit” said the officer.
“DEPI reminds people that if they have concerns about issues with wildlife they can contact
their local DEPI office.
