Close to 700 koalas killed by authorities in Australia because of overpopulation!
Despite concerns about Australia’s dwindling koala numbers, Victoria’s state government conducted a secret cull to prevent overpopulation in a bushland area.
Australian authorities have killed almost 700 koalas in secret culls to prevent overpopulation in a coastal bushland region after members of a starving colony were seen “falling out of trees”.
The euthanasia operations were conducted between September 2013 and March 2014 in a colony of koalas in gum woodlands at Cape Otway, about 140 miles south-west of Melbourne.
The koalas were taken from trees, sedated and assessed by veterinarians before being killed by lethal injection.
