Pelican Killed by an Arrow

A dead pelican was discovered on Sunday the 16th of October with an arrow sticking out of its body.

The pelican was found on the beach near Mowbowra Light Industrial Area, by a thirteen year old boy.

It is likely the bird did not die straight away and could’ve been injured anywhere along the coast. The police have been informed and DPAW officers now have the pelican.

If anyone has any information, please contact the Wildlife Officer at DPAW 9947 8000

She started squash when she was nine years old and has successfully become one of Australia’s best young squash players.
Anita described Tokyo as a ‘crazy big dolls house, everything was so colourful with flashing lights and lots of noise. You had to crane your neck to see the tops of buildings and there were lots of gaming companies. The streets were impeccably clean and the people extremely polite’.

She has also played in many other competitions, such as; the Geraldton Junior Open, Western Australia State Junior Championships and Junior Nation Titles in Cairns, Queensland.

40km, 400 laps, 3 x novelty teams, 4 x 4 person teams, 2 x accruing solo swimmers, $ 1,180.25 raised and numerous support people make up an awesome day for the 2016 Karma Resort Rottnest Virtual Channel Swim at the Paltridge Memorial Swimming Pool.

Just keep swimming an all girls team came 3rd in a time of 6hrs 38min, Raising an amazing amount of money for the RFDS of $ 1,180.25 as well as the gate takings on the day of $142.90.
