Warwick State High School calf euthanised
THE regional director of the Department of Education has confirmed the incident surrounding a calf having to be euthanised at Warwick State High School at the weekend.
As reported yesterday, there were reports of members of the public attempting to scare the bat colony by honking their horns and inadvertently scaring one of the agriculture department's calves.
Darling Downs and South West Queensland regional director Deb Dunstone confirmed about 6am Sunday a WSHS agriculture assistant arrived at the school to find a calf caught in a gate with a broken leg.
"The vet was called and the calf was subsequently euthanised," Ms Dunstone said.
"It is unknown how the incident occurred or when it happened."
Ms Dunstone said due to the flying foxes extra signage on restricted access to ovals was erected last week.
"Community members are encouraged to contact police or the School Watch hotline on 131 788 if they witness or suspect suspicious behaviour on school grounds," she said.
