Red Card for foxes,cats and rabbits are a Western Australian organization that co-ordinates fox shoots in February and March every year. FOXBUSTERS were one of the teams involved.
In February, Boyup Brook teams culled 528 foxes, 34 feral cats, 156 rabbits and 1 pig. It was a very well organized and well sponsored event with most teams taking home prizes.

Organizers and presentations
In March, the Tunney LCD had 7 teams that culled 57 foxes, 8 feral cats and 27 rabbits.
Feral animals, particularly foxes and feral cats are a serious threat to agricultural production and our native marsupials, reptiles and birds. These organized feral culling events go a long way to reducing the threat, however once a year is not enough. Regular hunting particularly in summer and autumn is equally important.
