Unfortunately it seems like it’s going to take someone getting killed for this government to reverse its decision to allow shooting in national parks.

What if that person is an overseas tourist? When word gets out that Australia is not a safe destination, how will that impact our tourism industry worth over $70 billion as of last year?

Will that person be a child? Nobody is safe going into national parks once this starts.

I pity the native animals, countless numbers will be shot. After all, who’s watching? The shooters will do what they like and probably leave the carcasses to rot attracting even more ferals to devour them. And don’t think they will all have a painless death from a head shot either.

I’m also wondering if some of these hunters will take bows and arrows, even more cruel!

When are humans going to evolve?
