Croc Cull: Frydenberg is right - humans over crocs
The Federal Environment Minister Josh Frydenberg says he could approve a croc cull in Queensland.
Mr Frydenberg is reported in media as saying he has the power to order a cull under Federal laws, telling The Courier-Mail: "In my book human life comes first ... such action properly considered and carried out would have my full support."
KAP Member for Kennedy, Bob Katter welcomes Mr Frydenberg’s comments saying, “We’ve got some serious comment from Canberra on this, they’ve come to their own conclusion and they are right.
“In the case of crocs in the Nth, nature is completely out of balance.
“Shooting safaris and egg harvesting will start to get the numbers back into balance.
“Safaris will provide a vitally important income stream for our First Australians, of which they have none, they’re on the begging barrel (welfare) and the Feds and State Government won’t give them Title Deeds to start cattle operations. At least Mr Frydenberg intends to provide them with an income stream.
“This Minister has always touted to do some big game hunting in Canberra, well this this will almost certainly provide him with quality ammunition, this is a very good decision.
“We’re talking about all of Nth Aus – were talking about a third of the constituents.
“The population of Nth Aus is must bigger than North Shore Sydney. There’d be something done real quick if the crocs were eating them in the Sydney Northern beaches.
