The NSW Labor government committed to end the licensed shooting of flying-foxes in NSW just before the recent elections. They committed $5 million for farmers to install exclusion netting around orchards & the legal shooting of flying-foxes to be phased-out within 3 years. The Liberal Party said if they were elected they would reduce this period to 2 years, so I guess, now that the Liberal Part are in government, this will be happening. The Humane Society International said, Only an immediate ban on the shooting of flying-foxes can avoid this unnecessary cruelty.” http://www.ecovoice.com.au/eco-news/2813-flying-foxes-get-a-last-minute-reprieve-from-the-nsw-government

I have made a 1min 45secs YouTube video of the spectacular sight of thousands of flying-foxes crossing the Cooks River at dusk. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ToG4T_mkUWE
