Just a quick one...
I had an interesting encounter in Namadgi on nightfall yesterday. Stopped to eat and after a whistle got a visit from a young red fox. He/she was fearless and obviously very hungry, It didn't look to be in very good condition. Entry to the area has been signposted as being baited with 1080 poison yet here was this young fox and dogs could be heard barking in the distance as the night wore on.
This fox was determined though and warily stalked around the camp within meters. Around and around looking for some opportunity. Anyway... dogs are my only annoying fear out there at night. I have had experiences with them in the past and 1080 obviously isn't removing that worry. I don't like to feel like I've entered the food chain when I bushwalk.
Yes I am getting soft, and hang me TAMS, it got a couple of sausages.
