• PLEASE SUPPORT OUR PETITION TO SAVE THE 1080-IMPLANTED DINGOES STILL STRANDED ON QUEENSLAND’S PELORUS ISLAND
•We are grateful to Minister Steven Miles for already taking action to shut down the inhumane Pelorus Island goat eradication program that has contributed to the dingoes' present plight
•BUT our petition asks that he again exercise his compassion by enforcing the speedy removal of the “death row” dingoes from Pelorus Island and approving their surrender to Eagles Nest Sanctuary & Wildlife Hospital where the poison implants will be removed and they will be safely housed for life
•WE also appeal to the Premier of Queensland, Anastacia Palaszczuk, and the Minister of Agriculture and Fisheries to intervene on behalf of the poison-baited dingoes and ensure this humane outcome.
We are hopeful that with your help the “death row” dingoes will be reprieved before the 1080 implants activate, saving them from prolonged suffering and an excruciatingly painful death.
TO: The Honourable the Speaker,
and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland-
We, the signatories to the Petition ‘Let them Live: Reprieve the Pelorus Island "death row" dingoes', including many Queensland residents, draw to the attention of the House the unacceptable fate of the so-called “death row” dingoes released to Pelorus Island by Hinchinbrook Shire Council for the purpose of wild goat control.
Your petitioners therefore request the House to call on the Premier, The Honourable Annastacia Palaszczuk, the Minister for the Environment and Heritage Protection,The Honourable Dr. Steven Miles and the Minister for Agriculture, The Honourable Bill Byrne, to bring about a humane end of the sorry saga on Pelorus Island as speedily as possible by enforcing the darting, capture and return of the “death row” dingoes to the mainland and approving their release to Eagles Nest Wildlife Sanctuary where they can be housed for life and the 1080 implants removed to avoid further suffering and a prolonged and painful death.
Your petitioners further draw to the attention of the House the considerable number of international signatories pleading for the reprieve of the stranded Pelorus Island dingoes, who may be deterred from visiting Queensland on the basis of a global perception that the State endorses barbaric animal treatment.
