Feral herbivore control at Paruna

Feral herbivore control at Paruna

Feral goats, pigs and rabbits require control at Paruna.  Density of all species is low, but ongoing control is required due to reinvasion from adjoining areas.

  • Goats are trapped and/or shot:  74 feral goats were removed in 2014.
  • Pigs are also trapped and/or shot and may also take bait:  38 pigs were removed in 2014.
  • Rabbit control currently involves opportunistic shooting.
