RSPCA review of indigenous hunting methods

The RSPCA has called on the federal government and Aboriginal elders to review indigenous hunting methods after a graphic video of a turtle having its flippers hacked off while still alive was posted on the web.

Animal activist Colin Riddel has been trying to locate the owner of the video on behalf of the RSPCA after the footage was uploaded to YouTube last October.

RSPCA Queensland chief inspector Michael Pecic said Aboriginal hunting practices need to be reviewed and they also needed to know the origins and details of the footage to take the matter further.
