Kangaroos are in the firing line again on Mt Panorama

Kangaroos are in the firing line again on Mt Panorama

Future plans to cull the kangaroo population in the Mount Panorama precinct could be back on the agenda.

The controversial animal management tactic is not the first of its kind, after a cull on Mount Panorama made headlines in 2009.

At the time, Bathurst Regional Council were given permission from the National Parks and Wildlife service, to cull up to 140 kangaroos in that area.

Bathurst Regional Council’s Mount Panorama Fauna Management Strategy will aim to keep the number of marsupials in that area,  in check,  and is expected to be formally adopted as a working document at a council meeting tonight.

Previous Council will continue to fight for hospital parking in Orange
