Hi David
In Victoria, use of this kind of aversive conditioning would require a
scientific permit, mainly because it involves protected wildlife.  I imagine
that would be the case in other States too.  It is debatable whether ethics
committee approval would be required.  Depends whether what you are doing is an
experiment, or an operational procedure.  If the latter, then I would argue that
ethics committee approval should not be required.  However, the permitting
authority would decide on this issue.
