Brumbies


Recommended Posts

From the article:

”It is estimated there are more than 400,000 brumbies in Australia and when concentrated in high numbers, their hard hooves pose a risk to the environment and native species.”


Wouldn’t Brumbies be “native” now too? 236 years now. 
I would love to have the property to take in a wild horse or two.

Nothing is indigenous we're told except for the ones that walked here naked and starving for 60,000 years (and that number keeps increasing).

What do dingoes eat?

 

You have two invasive species over there. Rabbits, and house cats. Now if we had a bunch of rabbits and a bunch of house cats running loose around here, the coyotes would eat a bunch of them.

 

And you have your own wild dog - dingoes. Just seems like they should knock down that rabbit and kitty cat population.

 

But they don't seem to. So what do they eat?

We have a (rough estimate) 2 million feral foxes, its a delicate balance. When they expose the rabbit population to a new strain of calicivirus or a massive baiting/shooting/TNT etc cull the foxes turn to native fauna.

 

Dingoes (before Europeans) took care of any old, sick or injured roos.

So you're saying that dingoes are like some hunters I know? They hunt big game - kangaroos - and turn up their noses at small game - rabbits and cats?

No, they're dogs.....they'd eat anything starting from scat to right up to human babies.

I live very rural, the daily/nightly roadkill is enormous. The crows, dogs, foxes, cats etc have a daily easy pickings smorgasbord.

That's because you don't have bears.

 

If you had bears, they would steal them before the dingos could get them.
