Mercury January 2014 Tasmanian Great Poo Hunt The Tassie Farm

This is not the first time Tassie has held a poo hunt. A fox dropping survey was carried out in 2008 and 2010, collecting more than 6000 scats. This time around, the 2014 hunt has cast its net further. Forty volunteers were being scooped up to search for poo belonging to feral cats and dogs, foxes and native predators such as devils and quolls. Hoping for an update, The Tassie Farm has contacted the Project Officer from the Department of Primary Industries. So, we should be reporting back to you with more Scat Facts soon. The project is funded by the Invasive Animals Cooperative Research Centre. Full story: http://www.themercury.com.au
