And they wonder why some of us with something between the ears don't believe a word they say.
Here's the latest on the what's happening with the land that the Kangaroos were destroying the grasslands, a native moth and a native grasshopper.
Defence land set aside for housing

A huge parcel of Defence land at Lawson controversially cleared last year of kangaroos and 19,000 tonnes of waste including asbestos can now be subdivided.
The 149ha Belconnen Communications Station in Baldwin Drive, including a heritage-listed transmitter building, has been placed on the Register of Surplus Commonwealth Land Potentially Suitable for Housing and Community Outcomes to be considered for ACT housing and community uses.
Colliers International said depending on density and how much was set aside for reserve the land would yield between 1100-1300 dwellings and would be worth between $80 million to $100million.
From the Canberra Times.
And while this is now shown to the public most of who live in 'sound byte land' so wouldn't remember the issue. Now they're killing the next Defence land roos.
A cull of kangaroos on Defence land in Canberra has been halted by the ACT Administrative Appeals Tribunal.
Tribunal president Linda Crebbin has ordered a stay to the cull of kangaroos at the Majura site until the issue can be considered by the tribunal's full panel.
She says she doubts a short delay in the kangaroo cull will affect any threatened species.
The Defence Department wants to cull a total of 7,000 kangaroos on the site and has already killed about 4,000.
The Department and the ACT Government say the cull is necessary to prevent overgrazing of native grasslands but Animal Liberation wants it stopped.
The matter will now be heard by the Administrative Appeals Tribunal in June.
What's interesting about Majura is that bus loads of soldiers were seen leaving and some trying to hide their faces. It seems (no proof, but the truth eventually comes out) that our defence force may have been used to kill our kangaroos, on the coat of arms that they serve under!
Shame, shame, shame to all who support this.
