I know many of you do come out this way and I think you need to know a situation that has started in Broken Hill NSW and surounds
I local newspapers past few days is stories on local kangaroos and now Emus are dyeing in the hundreds , it seem some thing is killing them and no one knows why
It has this week to be found to jump to Emu the joints bleed out and most animals are dead in under 4 hours
If you have pets please take care no one has worked out what is causing this all the known problems proved a negative so if it can move emu it may move to our pets .
I do not know but best thing is to let people know and hope they find the cause soon
thank

I just read the latest news reports and they dont mention Emu's at all and there is no mention of dogs or any other animals so unless you know something the scientist dont I think this is scaremongering.

Sorry I meant goats ok sorry but it jumps specials that is scarry

I have just re read it but some thing is out there and it is killing wild life and for me personally have stopped going bush with my dogs.

Our local vet when I asked she is not sure but she said saftey of your pets is paramount and I know my dogs love there long walks out of town but for now no more

I think they are stummped on why and i hope they get the resourses to solve this we have a major problem with water at present

I wonder if will go to the sheep and cattle if this happens it is going to cost a fortune to fix and many farmers will loose out big time

From memory, Emus have longer legs than goats and less of them too.

Allien m. do you mean jumps species or specials???

we have a lot of Emus around town I am not sure it looks like it is a much wider problem

my main warning and concern was for our pets , they relay on you as a owner to keep them safe

Not sure if this is true

Might be just some anti Monsanto activist

Copied from a daily mail uk discussion


“In order to keep kangaroos from eating the wheat, Monsanto created a new GMO wheat seed¿but which they then added a viral hemorrhagic fever (HF) component to in order to ¿target for death¿ the massive kangaroo population in Australia. Now, would YOU eat that wheat? Coming to a store near you.”

Looks like a bit of Fake News scare mongering on your part.
The paper never even made that statement. It was posted by a reader as a comment.

Nothing new Allien? This is dated December 2016 Mystery roo deaths in far west NSW baffle authorities. Twelve months later a couple of reports of deaths over the past year Mystery kangaroo killer leaves experts baffled.

I did a bit of digging on this yesterday also. The Australian reported on it recently and it is quite alarming. The roo deaths are in the millions according to recent counts although I didn't see anything about emus. It is not restricted to the Broken Hill area and that is part of the mystery. It covers areas that don't share the same water, crops, etc and to date they can find no bacteria, virus, or any communicable disease that is causing it. I think it is reasonable to be cautious about dogs being off leads particularly if they stumbled across a recent carcass.

Possible mutation of the new calixo virus released a few years ago to kill the rabbits off that got resistant to the old virus ? But the authorities will never admit it if it was the case...
