<>A recent review into the Tasmanian Fox eradication program has found
no evidence of foxes in Tasmania.   There are calls for a thorough
Police investigation into this whole sorry saga.

This disgraceful episode has irreparably damaged the credibility of the
environmental movement in Tasmania.   There are many questions that need
answers before this one is put to bed.  We should all feel cheated that
more than 45 million dollars has been wasted, probably at the expense of
genuine needs such as conservation and protection of Orange-bellied
Parrot etc.

It is interesting to note that birding-aus probably got the first scoop
on this back in October 2002.  At that time, it was interesting to
observe that Mr. Camby, the author of the report
was howled down by some birding aus subscribers for suggesting that
there could be fraud at the heart of the Tasmanian Fox eradication program.

This saga places a cloud of shame over the entire Tasmanian
environmental movement.  It is very sad to see.
