g'day all,
Not Tasmania, but NW Qld but just a little east of Mount Isa at the East Leichhardt bridge.
A retired bushy who knows the difference between a Dingo and a Fox saw 3 on 13/3/2002
My Reader's Digest Encyclopaedia of Australian Wildlife shows their nearest territory at about Julia Ck (to the East) and Urandangie to the SW.
I know they have been in the Julia Ck sheep country but I was unaware that they inhabit the area to the SW.
This sighting is an extension of their range and no doubt a further hazard for the many ground feeding  (and ground breeding) birds in this area.
Regards, Bob Forsyth, Mount Isa, NW Qld.
