The following is an extract from the Echo Ellenbrook News, article by Rashelle Predovnik January 17th 2015

THE welfare of 200 kangaroos in Ellenbrook has been under the spotlight this week following a push by concerned residents to ensure they would be relocated safely by the developer.

Residents have kept a watchful eye on a mob of kangaroos that live on Millhouse Drive and will be shot with tranquilizer darts, then relocated.

Ellenbrook resident Julie Church said she thought the kangaroos would be moved this week and residents were worried about their welfare.

She said many people were extremely concerned the Department of Parks and Wildlife, which signed off on the operation, would not have qualified animal welfare carers onsite to help.

“The wildlife carers I contacted over the weekend are very concerned that a contractor will carry out this work without vets and wildlife carers at site at the tranquilising and more importantly the release point,” she said.

“They said the kangaroos will be extremely distressed and very often abandon their joeys out of the trauma of the procedure.
“So there needs to be carers at both points to pick up abandoned joeys and help the animals that will injure themselves.”

Ms Church said details about the release point had not been released and residents wanted to know if sufficient research had been done to ensure there would be enough food and water for the mob over the long hot summer months ahead.
Stocklands project manager Stuart Sinclair said an approved contractor would move the kangaroos soon but a date for the move had not yet been finalised.

A Department of Parks and Wildlife spokesperson said the kangaroos would be moved to a state forest in Sawyers Valley that had plenty of water and food.

He said there would be a vet onsite and the process would be done as humanely as possible.

Ms Church said residents would continue to stay in touch with the department and local native animal care groups hoped they would have the opportunity to offer a helping hand when the transfer took place.

It’s great to see the healthy fast food chains do well and I’m pleased there is going to be a Sumo Salad opening at The Shops in Ellenbrook. Yum!

 

Sumo salad is also calling for new staff to work at the outlet.

In the Market Watch section of The Sunday Times real estate lift out Terry Ryder, founder of hotspotting.com.au stated that although momentum in WA has cooled, affordable suburbs were the best investment option and that these suburbs are resisting the pattern of market activity tapering off.

Mr Ryder includes the Swan local government area in his list of the strongest markets in Perth. He explains that The City Of Swan is hot due to Urban renewal, government policy and job nodes.

With regards to affordability Ellenbrook still has a median price range of $439,00 which puts in among the most affordable suburbs in Perth.
