Golden perch and cod aren’t the only animals dying out at Menindee, with muddy patches near Lake Cawndilla trapping and killing kangaroos, sheep and goats.
Staff from the New South Wales National Parks and Wildlife Service were called out to help trapped animals by the lake after Sydney Morning Herald photographer Nick Moir discovered kangaroos slowly dying in the mud.
A spokesperson for the Office of Environment and Heritage (OEH) told the BDT that NPWS staff have put down the animals they found stuck there.
Two more locals are joining an elite group to take part in a 1000-kilometre ride for charity.
In what turned out to be an unofficial T20 final, a strong bowling effort set up a hard-fought four-wicket win for the North Bulldogs at the Alma Oval on Saturday morning.
The Robins were first to bat on an Alma pitch that had improved considerably to bat on from the early game but the early loss of Daniel Milne (0) put them under pressure.
