Kiwis to eat excess wallabies "Owner of Waimate's Savoy Tearooms, Vicki Curline, says eating them is the way to go.

Another look at 1080 poison's impact on native wildlife "arguments have been dismissed as a 'lot of nonsense' by conservation group Forest and Bird. ECan said 1080 was an 'essential tool', and the most cost-effective poison for large-scale pest control. As the only vertebrate toxin able to be applied from the air, it was essential for controlling rabbits, possums, wallabies and mustelids (weasels, stoats and ferrets) which stripped vegetation from rugged and isolated terrain. 'With rabbit populations becoming immune to RCV [rabbit calicivirus], the only effective response for large-scale control will be the use of 1080,' said ECan pest portfolio chairman Robert Johnston" 8Dec06
