Feral deer will become Australia’s ‘next rabbit plague’


Recommended Posts

Populations of feral deer have increased tenfold in the past two decades with numbers now too high to be managed by recreational hunting or other recent control measures.

Numbers of the invasive species are now so large in some parts of the east coast that a new national strategy by federal and state governments proposes establishing a “containment zone” to stop the spread of the animals westward across the country.

Environment groups and some land managers say the plan is necessary to suppress a species that is emerging as “the next rabbit plague” and to prevent “wall-to-wall deer across the continent”.

Just tell the Australians that those deer are actually Tasmanian tigers and that these tigers eat all their sheep and those deer will become extinct in short order.
