Toolangi fire trails spiked

There should be a bounty for the scalp of anyone stupid enough to do this.

In the latest round of what can only be called borderline militant stupidity, steel spikes have been found after destroying a four-wheel driver’s tyres, in the Toolangi State Forest in Victoria. We’ve been told that unfortunately this is not the first time locals have had the Toolangi fire trails spiked.

It is becoming worryingly common in state forests and some national parks across Australia, with many blaming borderline militant greens groups out to stop four-wheel drives, motorbikes and mountain bikers from using the areas.

Mason Friedl recently uploaded photos onto social media group “4X4ing Australia” after his two driver’s side tyres were punctured by spikes laid in the trail. The spikes were found along 20 metres of track, which Mason states was an hour long drive from the bitumen. The implication being that whoever planted them owned a four-wheel drive themselves; the hypocrisy not lost on Mason.

Unfortunately common sense isn’t as prevalent as we all would hope with the Toolangi fire trails spiked, but should you happen to come across some, remove whatever you can find, and post up the information and location onto social media for others to be made aware – drop us a line, and we can help get the word out too!

Yep,, video the pricks that are doing it if at all possible.
Being State Forest,, the trails should come under "public roads" and be under all road rules, therefore open to fines and prosecutions.
I do not fear death itself... Only its inopportune timing!

A young boy is currently in royal Hobart hospital because a fu%*+%} (murderer?) strung some piano wire between two trees at Mt Loyd (repulse)riding park...I don’t know how bad the young rider is but his friends said they thought he was dead when he hit it. Police are investigating.
