I’m fed up. The previous Labor government in Victoria stopped cattle grazing in the Alpine National Park in 2005. Now the current LNP coalition government wants to put them back.
They are introducing cattle back into parts of the national park, ostensibly as “scientific” trials. So we’ve become like the Japanese with their “scientific” harvesting of whales. The Federal Minister for the Environment is letting this go ahead. Why?? Time for another fight to save the fragile, pristine environment of the Alpine National Park.
What is the point of designating an area as a national park if cattle can graze there? Doesn’t the term “national park” mean anything any more? When are the LNP politicians and their cronies going to understand “no means no”?
