    Same problem in NZ, culling out the population of introduced possums and rats/goats on coastal islands. All like the rabbit in Australia brought in by settlers in 1800 for some obsure reason.

    For those dedicated to really learning survival, hunting etc life without frills, coffee and toilet paper they should spend a year living with the Kanaka in the still remaining remote villages in the PNG highlands regions.

    In fact if anyone is interested I could put them in touch with people

    There was wild pig on the Island at the bottom of the harbour . Hoof like prints could be seen in the sand. I thought it was deer but apparantly not.

    Due to the good eating of wild pig a kilo or 2 could be orderd from a man in the pub --nod wink. It arrived in newspaper looking more like a road kill with little professional butchering skill obvious.

    All gone now, and why is that. Eat the bloody things.

    Roumer has it that a few un indiginous speces live there as it was the remains of a defunct Zoo

    There was nothing 'obscure' about it.

    The first fleet brought them for food, a fine 'tradition' of the Royal Navy to introduce 'food' to all the islands that might end up with British sailors on them.

    " They were introduced in the 18th century with the First Fleet, and became widespread after an outbreak caused by an 1859 release."

    Courtesy of the same simple minded intellects that think that if you can eat it, what harm can it do !

    It's a big club! :)
    Rats were introduced to New Zealand for similar reasons. The Maoris used
    them for food on their long ocean voyages.

    Vegetarians aren't allowed on my property because they scare my plants.

    The stress caused to your animal pets must be unbearable too with all those meat-eating friends allowed on your property...
