According to Outdoor Hub, New South Wales’ Parliament has decided that hunters will soon be able to harvest pest animals in the region’s national parks. The bill opens up 79 parks to hunting, but will not allow shooting in the areas around Sydney, Newcastle, Wollongong, the Central Coast and the Blue Mountains.
Some of the species that will be hunted are feral pigs, feral goats, rabbits, foxes, wild dogs, and deer. Since 2004, about 2.6 million nuisance species have been removed. Happy hunting! –Brian McClintock
