    That educating the public thing is an interesting one – it’s been pretty much every animal welfare organisation’s missions forjustaboutever without any clear sense of what it means. I’ve been thinking about it lately: http://tinyurl.com/pnscc24

    I’m sure the animals of the Fraser Coast will be comforted by the knowledge that while they’ll still be killed, they’ll have a nice plastic bag to keep them from shocking the locals with their rampant deadness.

      Nailed it. How sickening that the overwhelming response in comments on the pictures is along the lines of “The council must not shock people with the truth! Respect the needlessly killed animals by bagging them thus hiding the truth from the ratepayers!”

      Umm, how about putting those bins full of dead bodies in front of every pound so everyone sees what happens to pets as they walk in the front door? Nobody in the nation could ever use the excuse “I didn’t know they would be killed!” ever again, and some would think twice before breeding those back yard litters. Workers might think twice about their efforts to reunite pets with owners, or rehome pets instead of filling that bin.

      Councils might be forced by voters to direct funds into subsidized desexing programs instead of bigger pounds and more killing.

    This is disgusting – this HAS to be stopped – these animals deserve 2nd chances – am alarmed how one looks like it “died” in a temp holding pen :(
    Petitions should be started – letters to the council – let’s bombard them NOW

    This is very disturbing and sad that this number of healthy animals have not been re-homed and saved from death. What is even more concerning is that these poor animals are being thrown away like garbage. Aside from being heart breaking for those who see it, is it not a health issue having dead animals sitting outside in the sun? The smell would be overpowering! Surely the animal rights and health department need to do a complete audit of this place!

    I can understand the “not bagging” being a health and safety issue. Not for the rampant deadness. the previous e comment seem to be a tad off the mark.
