Australia's most populous state now entirely in drought as farmers given authority to shoot kangaroos 

Australia's most populous state now entirely in drought as farmers given authority to shoot kangaroos Australia's most populous state was declared entirely in drought on Wednesday and struggling farmers were given new authority to shoot kangaroos that compete with livestock for sparse pasture during the most intense dry spell in more than 50 years. Much of Australia's southeast is struggling with drought. But the drought conditions in the state of New South Wales this year have been the driest and most widespread since 1965. The state government said Wednesday that 100 percent of New South Wales' land area of more than 800,000 square kilometers (309,000 square miles) was now in drought. Primary Industries Minister Niall Blair said farmers were enduring one of the driest Southern Hemisphere winters on record. "This is tough. There isn't a person in the state that isn't hoping to see some rain for our farmers and regional communities," Blair said in a statement.

State and federal governments are providing financial help, but not enough for many farmers. With dry conditions forecast to continue for the next three months, farmers had to decide whether to continue the expensive and laborious task of hand-feeding cattle and sheep or sell their livestock. The state government on Wednesday also lifted the number of kangaroos that farmers are allowed to shoot and reduced bureaucratic red tape facing land holders applying for permission to shoot.

"Many farmers are taking livestock off their paddocks, only to then see kangaroos move in and take whatever is left," Blair said. "If we don't manage this situation, we will start to see tens of thousands of kangaroos starving and suffering, ultimately leading to a major animal welfare crisis," he added.

"Anybody on the land that will make a phone call to the Department of Environment can get permission to shoot almost whatever they want to shoot and it's unaudited and unchecked and that's our concern – animal welfare," Borda told Australian Broadcasting Corp. The government would have been better off subsidizing professional shooters to reduce kangaroo numbers more humanely, he said. "We see this as probably the worst possible outcome for the kangaroo, but I've got to emphasize we do understand the plight that farmers are in," Borda said.
