Residents of Western Australia urge the authorities to begin shooting of kangaroos, whose population has increased dramatically and threatens the welfare of citizens. These peace-loving in General, animals cause enormous damage to farmers and agricultural crops, and pose a threat to motorists.
Australians are spending tens of thousands of dollars for the erection of fences around housing and land, to protect themselves from the invasion of marsupials, writes June 25, local newspaper Perth Now.
Environmentalists believe that the cause of the «baby boom» among kangaroo, the likes of which has not been for half a century, were the presence of extensive open space and ideal conditions for breeding animals.
Suffer more from the invasion of the marsupial Albany and Margaret river, whose residents plead to save them from chaos. They argue that at high temperature kangaroo become aggressive, and they are afraid to let children out of the house.
The local Department of parks and wildlife does not develop any plans for the future, arguing that citizens must hire licensed shooters who will shoot these animals.
