That Skippy just can’t keep himself out of the headlines.
First there was the courtcase involving former actor Tony Bonner taking producers to court over residual payments.
Now the park where the series was filmed is said to be not caring properly for its native animals.
Waratah Park Earth Sanctuary has been closed for nearly two years, apparently for renovation.
Last week the RSPCA put down two kangaroos and says it has concerns over the welfare of its animals.
Property developer Prudentia Investments leases the site but has not had a licence for the animals since it took over three years ago.
Loal residents believe it has run down because Prudentia intends to build houses there.
This sounds like a plot ripped right from the ’60s show. Big old nasty corporate man wants to knock down some trees and shaft wallabies and koalas from their homes. Sonny and Clancy would be mortified to hear of such disaster.
That Skip will sort him right out!
