To those out there giving sarcastic answers to my question, what ideas have
you come up with lately to wipe out foreign species, or are you going to
throw your hands up in the air??
Thankyou to those who made suggestions, but does anyone have actual
scientific knowledge of the possibility of this? I think Tony made a good
suggestion that the resistant 1% could be exterminated by culling...if it
worked for the Tasmanian Tiger & King Island Emu, I don't see the remaining
1% being a problem, especially if bounties are on offer.
PS: Why can't the same done for foxes and feral cats...bounties that is?
