Constituency Question - kangaroo pet food trial
Victorian Parliament - 20 June 2018 - Ms KEALY - My constituency question is to the Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change. Minister, local farmers would like to know: what is the reason for the extensive delays in the approval of applications for permits under the kangaroo pet food trial? One shooter I have spoken to is engaged by 40 farmers in south‑west Victoria under the kangaroo pet food permit program, but just two farmers have had their permits approved. Farmers are in tears as they watch their pastures and crops being eaten and fences destroyed as they face an agonising wait for the kangaroo pet food permit application to be approved. Minister, what is the reason for these extensive delays in issuing kangaroo pet food permits in Victoria?
