On 14 December 1988, 4ZZZ was taken off air and forcibly evicted from its UQ premises by the then student union executive, headed by one Victoria Brazil. The move prompted many previously apolitical students to take a firm stand against the move and to rally support for the station. While Zed was not to return to the premises its' volunteers had helped hand-build, unprecedented community support saw the station live to fight another day.
Bush Turkey Fatality
RSPCA officers managed to trap the turkey late last week, which had been roaming for almost 2 weeks with the arrow still in its body.
RSPCA spokesman Michael Beatty says a number of animals come into the wildlife hospital that have been shot with arrows in the last 3 weeks, including a wallaby on the Gold Coast, a curlew in Fig Tree Pocket, three horses with possible arrow wounds, a possum in Norman Park shot with a spear gun plus this bush turkey from Moorooka.
Mr Beatty has urged anyone with information about the incident to call the RSPCA.
