Fences vs fer­als

The Weekend Australian - Magazine - - INBOX -

“Line in the sand” (May 26-27) was an im­por­tant ar­ti­cle about pro­tect­ing our en­dan­gered an­i­mals. It should be il­le­gal to own an un­ster­ilised cat in Aus­tralia, given the un­told dam­age they do to our na­tive an­i­mals and birds. Also, the army should be en­cour­aged to hone its in­fantry skills by clean­ing up all the feral an­i­mals cre­at­ing havoc and dev­as­ta­tion across much of our forests and re­serves. Feral-proof fenc­ing is a great start, but much more is needed to save our mag­nif­i­cent na­tive an­i­mals such as the short-nosed rat kan­ga­roo and bilby. Paul As­bury Sun­shine Beach, Qld
