Posted April 09, 2019 09:16:53 The park is a sanctuary for the saguars and other birds, and it’s a popular tourist attraction for many people in the area.
The park also offers wildlife viewing and hiking trails.
But in the past, it has been a place of concern for many.
ABC News’ Lisa Stebbins travelled to the park with ABC wildlife presenter Peter Lewis to investigate the park’s safety record.
Peter Lewis is a veteran wildlife photographer and conservationist.
He has covered the sasquatch sightings for decades, including the famous 1979 sighting near a campground near the park.
Peter says the sashes are quite easy to spot in the park, but it’s important to keep your eyes peeled and keep your pets inside.
If you are in a high-risk area, Peter recommends checking on your pets closely to ensure they’re safe.
“The first thing you should do is make sure they’re inside the enclosure, they’re well-protected, and they’re not in a situation where they’re exposed to predators,” he said.
“They’re not a problem to keep around if they’re kept outside of the enclosure and kept away from people.”
But it’s not just the animals who could be at risk of becoming victims of a crime.
“If they’re outside, I think they’re just like anybody else.
You’ve got to keep them safe, but also make sure you’re not letting them in your car or on your property,” Peter said.
He also advises pet owners to keep an eye out for their dogs, who might be attracted to the animals.
“When you see a dog, look out for it and you know, you don’t want it to be a problem for them to see a sasque or an animal,” he added.
“You just need to keep a safe distance, if you can.”
But the park has also been criticised by the Federal Government for its handling of the issue.
A year ago, federal wildlife minister, Barnaby Joyce, wrote to the parks minister, Scott Morrison, and urged the government to address the issue of sasqas in the parks.
“I would urge the Minister to ensure that all of the information that is received about the park is reviewed and the information provided to the Commissioner of Parks and Wildlife is made available to the Minister,” he wrote.
Mr Joyce also urged the park to provide the National Parks and Wilderness Association with a list of all the animals it has rescued from the park in the last two years.
The NPA has a list on its website.
But Mr Lewis says there’s no evidence to suggest any of the animals have been harmed or endangered in the previous two years and the park isn’t using the information as a safety measure.
The parks minister told the ABC he could not comment on the issue because of the sensitivity of the subject.
Mr Lewis is calling for the park and the government’s own guidelines on how to keep pets and wildlife safe.
He says the guidelines do not give clear guidance on how pets should be kept in the vicinity of wildlife and there is no guarantee that dogs won’t get trapped.
“One of the things that we need to understand is that a lot of people have got their dogs in the car.
It’s a very small number of dogs,” he says.
And if they’ve got a dog in the vehicle, they need to be aware of it.” “
So if they get trapped, it could be that they’ve been trapped in the wrong place.
And if they’ve got a dog in the vehicle, they need to be aware of it.”
Peter Lewis says it’s often hard to know if you’re in a safe area or not when it comes to keeping pets safe.
If a sasuqas is caught, Peter advises petowners to take the animal inside and keep the car doors closed.
“It’s very difficult to know whether the animal has been trapped, whether it’s been exposed to a predator, whether there’s been any injuries to it or otherwise,” he explained.
“Because if you’ve got an animal in the back of a car, it’s very easy to get caught in the crossfire, and you can get into a lot more trouble than you think.”
Peter says he would also like to see the guidelines updated to provide more specific information about the safety measures.
“People are very cautious about getting their hands on these animals,” he told the BBC.
“There’s very little information out there about what is required in terms of proper measures for handling and feeding these animals.”
He says pet owners are also worried about how they will respond to a dangerous situation.
“We have had a lot worse situations where animals have had their heads bitten off,” he explains.
“And they’ve taken their own lives.”
Peter recommends keeping a list with you at all times.
“Every now and then, you need to remind yourself to keep that list in your pocket, because you might not have a clue what
