Grin Grin Havnt seen him around lately, think the poaching bastard got caught red handed with a few deer in the chiller on the station he was supposed to be shooting rabbits on.  Grin

This frozen wallaby thing could be a winner. Thinking of developing a frozen wallaby popsicle for zoos.

Actually those were given over for petfood. Not something I do anymore except if Ive got to drive past it anyway. Im bugggered if its worth running up and down scrub covered hills to pick them up. Donated to a friend.

Have seen a guy in CHC today driving ute with dog box, had trailer with 4 wheeler and wallabies stuffed into every little crevice and gap  Grin my guess would be about 50 animals, was probably heading to petfood place. Wandering how much one animal could fetch?

$12 to $20 bit of a guess though. I just pass em on free of charge. Most are left to rot on the hill.  Theres a bloke in Burnham south of Christchurch buying them, or was, and I know Premium Game in Blenhiem were buying them too.
