The Director of the Tasmanian Conservation Trust says the government’s plan to allow recreational hunters to shoot fallow deer is not a comprehensive management plan, and constitutes nothing more than an election promise. Peter McGlone says Parks and Wildlife aren’t being funded to properly manage the program, which could see hunters allowed into the the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area and other parks. McGlone says if the policy is about managing invasive species it should also apply to feral pigs, goats and cats, with funding to appropriately train, supervise and monitor hunters and measure the effectiveness of the program.
