- ENVIRONMENTAL DEFENDERS OFFICE OF NORTHERN QUEENSLAND SLAMS KATTER’S AUSTRALIAN PARTY’S CALL FOR FLYING FOX CULL
A FAR Northern environmental expert has condemned Katter’s Australian Party’s stance on flying foxes, warning “further assaults” on a Cairns camp could lead to population collapse.
Two KAP MPs, including Dalrymple’s Shane Knuth, have issued a list of demands for the major parties to win their support to form minority government in Queensland.
Speaking to The Cairns Post yesterday, Mr Knuth said the removal of flying foxes from populated areas, such as the Cairns CBD, was “one of the priorities”.
“We have 400 square miles (1036 square kilometres) of rainforest, plenty of places, yet they’re living in the CBD,” he said. “This is ridiculous.”
