Hello Allan,

I think your point is also true enough. It is just another complication in
the problem, that adds to my concerns against the suggestion that some
others made. I decided not to mention that point, as I reckon Peter Shute
had already made pretty much the same point as you are making. My message
was already long enough and directed towards another set of reasons.....

Hi Philip,

The problem with making a business venture out of any pest species, is that
once up an running, the business proprietors have a vested interest in
sustaining the source of their business.

Goats in NSW seem to be a case in point - I think there was a hope that a
value placed on their head would make farmers eradicate them, but those I've
spoken to see them as a bank account they can draw on every year, just like
any other flock. The numbers of goats we saw out west on a recent trip was a
little overwhelming.
