cull free zone

Dickson last night - a good night for training, mild and still, the track firm for the most part, only a little soft on the top bend. Just two turned up, Andrew and Rod, and after a good warm-up they ran straights and bends for 20 minutes plus. I jogged around supervising as usual.

It is a tragedy that we cull our kangaroos, and such large numbers of them too. And don't kangaroos immediately reproduce again to fill the newly vacated niches? That's my understanding.

And the damage that excessive numbers of kangaroos do to the environment cannot be anything like the damage done by the extensive clearing going on to build new suburbs.

Methinks there is more to this than meets the eye.
