Curiosity killed the cat

Tidbinbilla feral cat.


An interesting article reporting the prospect of a national eradication program for the feral cat using 'curiosity' baits.

My understanding is the small sausage shaped baits contain lethal pellets unlikely to be consumed by other wildlife though the impact on marsupial carnivores seems undecided.

I'm all for doing something about feral cats. It's an interesting report via the Sydney Morning Herald

  1. Poison baiting is non target specific & in my opinion cruel. What about the quolls? What about scavengers such as Ravens & Crows etc. No I am all for feral cat eradication, but not with poisons.
