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.
