    Anyone see this? Pretty interesting.

    I wonder if PETA will jump all over this one.So many Koalas...so few palatable ideas for curbing them

    I dont doubt it, but thats not really a 'invasive species' if its in its native range
    that makes no logic

    From what I can understand based on the news report they are not native to the island.

    That's a coincidence, I'll be off to Kangaroo Island next weekend searching for CPs. Maybe I'll have to cull a few Koalas myself while I'm there.

    They aren't native to the Island and were introduced along with the platypus and brush tailed possum.

    Yeah, this has been an ongoing issue, I remember reading an article like this about a year ago. Koalas don't even taste good, sigh.

    They should be culled, much like white-tailed deer are culled in the state parks around where I live. IMO.
