Description

Healthy male, photo sent by friend who still isn't confident with iNat. I have added 2 photos of mine which I took in the day

This is the second wombat killed on this Thursday night in or close to Wattamolla Rd, and is the second consecutive Thursday night on which two wombats have been killed. The two the wombat roadkills in the previous Thursday night were
https://inaturalist.ala.org.au/observations/141649323
and
https://inaturalist.ala.org.au/observations/141682110

This is unprecedented. The other this night was
https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/142270951

Two utility vehicles driving recklessly, and in tandem, one with very bright lights, were seen driving at the location of this roadkill, heading south towards Berry.

The same vehicles were heard minutes earlier driving too fast at the eastern end of Wattamolla Rd heading west towards the location of the other roadkill in Wattamolla Rd on this night and towards the location of this roadkill. The observations suggest that they were responsible for both, given that there is almost no traffic at night in Wattamolla Rd since the landslips.

The other roadkill on this same night was half on the verge when hit, suggesting deliberate killing..

Description

Healthy adult male, looks to have been hit when half on the verge, similar to the female further along the road a week ago, on the previous Thursday night.

Two vehicles driving very fast and in tandem, were heard driving in the direction of this wombat roadkill location around 9 pm.

This is one of two wombats killed on this same Thursday night, the other is
https://inaturalist.ala.org.au/observations/142260620, which was killed just near the entrance to Wattamolla Rd on Woodhill Mountain Rd which is also a quiet road affected by landslips.

Two utility vehicles, one with very bright lights, were seen driving recklessly in tandem, away from that second wombat when it was lying freshly killed on the road, invoking strong impression that the utility vehicles had just killed it.

Two wombats were also killed on the previous Thursday night in Wattamolla Rd which are recorded at:
https://inaturalist.ala.org.au/observations/141649323. and
https://inaturalist.ala.org.au/observations/141682110

Description

A drey about 15 ft above this spot on the road near my house still had a baby occasionally crying. The squirrel on left and in second image was alive and responsive with no obvious injuries, was put at the base of the tree for about two hours and monitored at a distance. Several female squirrels came near, but ignored the baby. So, he was taken to the SPCA and an hour later was reported to be very dehydrated, active, and being cleaned of fly eggs and put in an incubator. On return, the crying squirrel had fallen to the same spot and died in my hands within minutes.

It is assumed that the mother was no longer returning and the babies left in desperation.

We received a call about a python sitting on the road around 11am on 11/4/22. We arrived shortly after and one of the deputies had already caught the animal and bagged it. But it had already been hit and was in the process of dying. The animal had an old injury on the tail. Sent off to USGS for necropsy.

Description

Fresh road strike which would've occurred within minutes of my arrival in my car because there was plenty of vehicle traffic both ways and the snake was thrashing itself around in dying paroxysms when I saw it, avoided it by pulling off the bitumen and getting quick photos during brief breaks in the traffic. It was stuck to the road at point of bodily injury and was obviously doomed. So I resumed driving and ensured sudden death for humane reasons by driving slowly over the head. Rear view confirmed it was 100 % lifeless (and not tangled in my chassis 😒.
Sad demise o this representative of arguably our best rodent control species (certainly way ahead of pet cats and feral cats, but I'm not sure about raptors eg kites and kestrels)
