Feral cats on Fraser Island

AUTHORITIES are attempting to ambush a feral cat population endangering native environment and wildlife on Fraser Island.

The first wild cats were captured on camera last year after equipment used to monitor dingo activity photographed a feral cat prowling through scrub.

Queensland Parks and Wildlife regional manager Ross Belcher said new information revealed cats had been populating numerous locations across the site. Trapping will be conducted near the Eurong area.
