    It would appear a faecal fooler is at work in Tasmania…all those scats and not one “Tasmanian fox scat” with a trace of Rufus wallaby (pademelon). Yet all the other carnivore scats,devil,quoll,dog,cat etc collected in Tasmania contained Rufus wallaby.
    I suggest you start feeding those foxes that are defecaeting the scats a bit of Rufus wallaby in the future BEFORE you pick them up.
    Oh and please increase the Eastern barred bandicoot consumption as well.
    No academy awards for that one Hollywood.

    Professor Poison I challenge you to an open public debate anywhere,at any time. I will even discuss a little bit of the powder I am keeping dry.
    I am willing to debate with a person that makes a living out of aiding and abetting the poisoning of innocent animals. I hope the screams of 1080 poisoned pigs,foxes and dingoes haunts you.
