Animal control in New Zealand
- Author(s): Howard, Walter E.
- et al.
New Zealand has experienced some acute problems as a result of introducing so many species of mammals. Current control methods are quite well developed, but even better organization and methodology are still required to provide additional relief from a number of the problem vertebrates. Introductions, resulting problems, and methods of control are described briefly. Introduced mammals are listed, and the current status and control efforts are described for European rabbit and European hare, deer and other big game, wild goat and pig, and the Australian brush-tailed opossum. Literature citations are provided.
