Recently we caught a guy 're-settling' 20+ Brush-turkeys on our patch
Cemetery <http://kobble.aviceda.org>) approx 40 kms NW of Brisbane.
Apparently he was fed up with them rearranging his urban veggie-patch. We
were wondering why were seeing so many!
Turns out that inner-city residents of Brisbane are doing the same, moving
them to the outer-suburbs.
Perhaps we are witnessing a new form of animal migration?
There is a story of someone on the north side of the Yarra (Melbourne)
who caught marauding possums, and used to row sacks full across the
river at dead of night.
Until he found someone going the other way!
