Utes deliver feed for pets

ON Thursday a convoy of five utes drove around the south east of Queensland delivering feed at a muster in Hatton Vale.

After stopping off at Picnic Point at the tourist lookout, they called into the Lockyer Valley to help out those in need by delivering stocks of feed.

Paul Archer and the convoy of utes with feed were brought up in a day from Victoria, all collected from donations.

Eddie Veivers of Junction View got involved in the cause to support animals affected by the floods.

He said Paul pays for it out of his own pocket and he drove all the way up from Shepparton, Victoria, which is also bracing for floods, to help Queensland get feed to animals left behind in the disaster.

“We are concentrating on people who can't get into town to access feed. I haven't been home in three weeks,” he said.

Mr Archer said it is all about the animals.

“They count. Only people were warned of the devastation, the animals were given no notice,” Mr Archer said.

“The authorities don't realise that people don't want to leave home without their animals.”
