Late on June 16, activists broke into a Parks and Conservation Service depot in Farrer (Canberra) by cutting through a security fence and then slashed tires and broke windows on 10 vehicles. Windows were also broken on the main building and "ALF" graffitied. According to media reports, a note calling for an end to the government's kangaroo cull was left at the scene. Photos: abc.net.au
Earlier that day, fencing was discovered cut open at the Jerrabomberra Grassland West Nature Reserve. The nature reserve is one of eight in Canberra where kangaroos will be shot during the government cull between June 16 and July 31. The government's intention is to kill 1,600 kangaroos (an unknown number of joeys will also be killed). To learn more about the cruel cull, visit Animal Liberation ACT.
