Border Mail turns their backs.

It seems the Border Mail has walked away from the controversial story about neglect and abuse issues at the “Ozy Wildlife sanctuary” in Ettamogah.

Some of you may recall I posted a story about my troubling observations there, and the outcome which occured, as well as the conflict of interests of having a member of council act as RSPCA veterinary officer.

A short time ago I provided my details for publication in the Border Mail  on the understanding that the story would be published, apparently the Border Mail has opted for what is easy over what is right and left the story to die.

If there’s any consolation to be gleaned from this, it’s that I’ve done as much as I possibly can to intervene personally and alert the relevant authorities (however reluctant they might be to act for political reasons).

This will, I suspect come as cold comfort when the next atrocious act of animal cruelty takes place at the sanctuary.

About alburywodongaonline

Hi I'm Jack Stone (a pseudonym), I'm a long-time Albury resident and I think it's a great place to live and work. I have a strong interest in local events and media and I started this site because I think a different perspective is often needed when reporting local news. I take a keen interest in local politics, as well as what's going on at the state and federal level, I'm also a supporter of social justice issues, the envirionment and the need for people to have a say in the events that effect their lives. I'm a fan of the Border Bandits and I'd love to see both teams take the flag this year, and next year, and maybe the one after that too.
