WICC has purchased 4 new cage traps for feral cat control on the Nullaki, partially funded by donations received through the WICC website. The cages are from a premiere WA manufacturer, feature smooth operation and sturdy construction, and are hot-dip galvanised for years of service. They are treadle-actuated, which means they are easily baited, and the smallest cat tippy-toe will trigger the trap door.
The traps will be used by NCI members at various locations, and will also be available to borrow by Nullaki residents. We will deliver the trap, give advice about locating, baiting and setting the trap, and come retrieve any cats that are caught. The cats will be transported to a local veterinarian for evaluation and humane destruction if appropriate.
Thanks to WICC for their ongoing commitment to biodiversity on the Nullaki, and thanks to those who have made quick work of the DONATE button on WICC’s website. Reducing feral cat numbers is a vital part of protecting the native fauna who call the Nullaki home.
