As a youth I remember working on a farm about 100 Km N of Port Lincoln and the farmer laying out an oats trail of 1080 for rabbits. We would then pickup the dead ones we could find over the next 2 days and get a pile about 20 m across and 2 - 3 m high. I also caught a couple of ravens that I thought were sick so took them back and put them in with the chooks but by the next day they had flown away to feed again on the big pile.
They had eaten so much they could not fly.
I do not remember any dead animals other than rabbits although cats and foxes were also getting the dead rabbits, so one of my jobs was to trap and shoot these to protect the chooks.
Cheers Chris
G'day Chris,
Are you sure you want to stay with your statement Chris?
*They had eaten so much they couldn't fly*
You are positive about this eh? no other factors come into account to give reason why they couldn't fly?
Kind Regards John A. Gamblin
