Deaprtment of Environment and Primary Industries unhappy about Mt Disappointment vandals.August 29, 2014 3:26am
Recent vandalism in camping areas at the Mt Disappointment State Forest has caused outrage within the Department of Environment and Primary Industries.
‘‘During the last weekend in July, bollards were illegally removed to enable vehicles to enter the camp ground causing significant damage,’’ DEPI acting district manager Bill Twitchett said.
‘‘It is becoming a more common occurrence and it won’t be tolerated’’.
DEPI was now seeking further information from the public about the vandalism.
‘‘We need information from anyone who may have seen suspicious behaviour in the vicinity of the Blairs Hut camping area on the weekend of July 26-27.’’
Damage to seasonal road closure gates, bollards and unauthorised driving are offences under the Forest Act 1958.
If anyone has information about the illegal dumping of rubbish or vandalism on public land, report it to DEPI’s customer service centre on 136
