Feral Animals

The Hon. N.J. CENTOFANTI (Leader of the Opposition) (14:34): Supplementary: can the minister outline a bit further what her government is doing to reduce the feral populations of pigs, goats and deer in South Australia?

The Hon. C.M. SCRIVEN (Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Development, Minister for Forest Industries) (14:34): Certainly. We have had a very successful program on Kangaroo Island in regard to feral pigs, and I think the most recent advice I had was that those numbers are now less than 100. There are a number of other programs in regard to feral animals, which I have put on the roster previously in this place.
