What Killed Cocky? (it’s not rocket science)


I took a walk around a lake recently and found the skeleton of a cockatoo or corella – when my companions noticed spent shotgun shells littering the area, we put two and two together.

The local Shire Council undertakes corella management in badly hit areas with the intention to move the destructive birds to more appropriate (for humans) locales, which mostly involves scaring them away with gunshot on a few successive nights – it is hoped this is a persuasive enough action.
