It gets worse...

The bad hunting in national parks deal I said yesterday was getting worse than originally thought has got worse again.

An exclusive report by Sean Nichols in Sydney Morning Herald reveals that it's going to cost us, taxpayers, at least $19 million.

"THE deal between the NSW government and the Shooters and Fishers Party to allow hunting of feral animals in the state's national parks is set to cost taxpayers at least an extra $19 million.

The money will go towards an additional 14 regional National Parks and Wildlife Service co-ordinators, new safety and regulatory signs in parks, training of staff and education programs for shooters who want to participate."

Great. We'll be paying millions so that a few people can endanger us by firing guns in national parks.
