Quite possible, Philip. But with the apathetic attitude of bureaucrats and
politicians there, ever since the introduction of Common Myna (=Indian
Mynah) Acridotheres tristis circa 1970, is it any wonder? What we need is
real leadership in tackling the problem of feral animals. In the case of
the Canberra Common Mynas, the extent of the problem is well known, but it
is appalling that nothing has been done. The Western Australians have the
right idea regarding the problem.
