Inquiry into the Control of Invasive Animals on Crown Land

Inquiry into the Control of Invasive Animals on Crown Land

By Administrative Law & Human Rights Section



This submission to the Environment, Natural Resources and Regional Development Committee on its Inquiry into the Control of Invasive Animals on Crown Land advocates that animal welfare should be a key priority in the consideration of whether to allow community hunting organisations or individuals to play a role in the control of invasive animals on Crown land.

If the control of species by culling is deemed necessary, then the culling should be carried out by highly trained individuals with strict oversight to ensure animals are killed humanely. LIV expressed concern that greater use of community hunting organisations and individuals to undertake culling could lead to a lack of transparency as to how this is carried out, how humane it is and how effective it is in achieving its aim.
