Cull approved for sulphur-crested cockatoos in Potts Point!

October 30, 2011

City News reported on 6 October 2011 that the NSW Government has given cull licenses to a number of Potts Point building owners. Shame!

I agree with vet Ross Perry:

Bird vet Ross Perry said a cull is inhumane and only a short term option.
“I personally think it is an act of ignorance. If they manage the cockatoos differently then they’ll find a long term solution, it is setting a poor example to the community and to future generations.”

At the very least future buildings should be designed to be cockatoo-proof.
