Mr HIBBINS: As I speak right now, the decision whether or not to proceed with Victoria’s duck hunting season has yet to be made. With drought conditions, waterbird and duck numbers at historically low levels and habitat being lost, one would have to ask: if duck shooting season is not cancelled this year, when will it ever be? Of course the fact that the state government has to even make this decision every year by continuing to support duck shooting, which results in the death and injury of native birds every single year, is unfathomable. It is time to end duck shooting in Victoria once and for all.
