Investigators found Johncock, as a traditional Aboriginal man, had an appropriate permit to hunt wombats for food and his actions were not inconsistent with traditional practices. If Indigenous people can kill native animals that are protected for the rest of us and “the Senior Community Constable’s actions were not inconsistent with traditional hunting practices…”
My question is:
Did he the cook and eat the Wombat for food, like a hungry Koori Hunter ??? Did his family and community receive sustenance they could not get any other way, or was it a thrill kill?
Lots to consider here…
