    Here in Oz we have amongst the largest number of introduced animals and birds.
    Foxes, Rabbits, Minah Birds, Cane Toads, Camels, Water, Buffalo and a few others.
    They have grown to epidemic proportion and cause so much havoc amongst the local wild life.
    Happy daze John in Oz.

    doubt if they are seen as pests though. LOL.

    The foxes and Rabbits were brought in 1800's top satisfy the hunting desire of the gentry.

    Cane Toad and Minah birds in the early 20th century to combat insects in the Sugar Cane and Grape growing industries.
    Both are now out of control and become pests in their own right.

    The Camels came in with the Afghans in the 1800's and so many now are Feral.
    Water Buffalo brought in to improve cattle breeds but have also gone Feral.

    But they are not the only pests, in Canberra the nation capital there are many Feral creatures who are very dangerous pests.
    But we are not the only country with them, all countries with a parliament have them.
    The Latin name is Anus a crapto.

    Not all bad we are exporting those camels back to the far east and they are being processed for food too. They are talking about using cane toad skins for handbags and other leather goods. Here in Tassie we had a bit of a scare as they thought a couple of idiots had brought over some foxes for their own sport.( Tas. is fox free)
    The govt. wasted lots of money trying to catch these non exsistent foxes. Turns out people were bringing the scats down here and scattering them around for a laugh. Takes all sorts. We did just get over a real fruit fly episode caused by imported fruit having been improperly processed in Melbourne. Now fruit fly free again but caused a lot of hardship to the local producers as they were not allowed to sell outside their local area.
