So how is this one a dumb- ass move by australia?

This herpes virus is only known to affect two forms of carp....The testing has been done on various animials and fish and creatures for a couple decades now i think...

Ok, if you say so, (my opinion) is that it will just lead to us chasing our tails after this. How are the toads in Brissie atm ? Here in Hervey Bay my grass is moving.

So if anyone ate the Carp, there is no transfer to humans then ?

I read about this virus a few months ago, and then about a week later read about the new strain of calici virus from Korea they are going to introduce. Both stories said the viruses were ready to introduce but we're waiting for approval. I have a conspiracy theory that they are waiting till just before the economic collapse to release both to eefect depopulation. A lot of old farmers will tell you that rabbits saved many a good man in the depression.

Rex Hunt will be out of a job.

Too many fish over too big an area and too few people. And don't you dare suggest we import more people!

Wow, another dumbass move by Australia....

I heard we brought over the cane toad from Hawaii to kill the beetle that had been wrecking our cane crops, only problem with that was that the beetle lives at the top of the cane about 5 feet high, apparently cane toads love to eat them, but they cant jump 5 feet up.

So that left us with a continuous plague of toads that breed 10x faster than rabbits

We have learned a lot since the cane toad fiasco and have had some very successful bio control releases. Cactoblastis for example.

I can not belive they let us know they are doing this?
we usually just find lots of dead animals, birds or fish.
how insane can you get? If he gets his way.
its in Murray Rive, Australia.

why not just fish them for food and trade?
why kill them and have a river full of dead fish?
and what other animals will get this?
with it in the water people would get it.

now you know why we get so many dead animals.
they usually Dont let us know.
