|Mark Goullet loves Australian Native Wildlife and
that is the motivation behind his organisation
Marks Specialised programs of
Feral and Pest Animal control, are exclusively designed to reduce the cause of decline of our
native wildlife by removing Wild Dogs and Feral Animals from our very sensitive
ecosystem/environs through a method utilising a combination of humane capture devices and
immediate euthanasia. Wild Dogs and Feral Animals can swiftly spread diseases, Eg.
Hydatids, Neosporin, to domestic animals, livestock and also humans. Reports of attacks by
wild dogs in South East Queensland are almost a weekly occurrence, whether on family
members, pets, or livestock. Having developed methods suitable for the live capture of
pest animals in settled areas, Mark and his associates have been busy removing Wild Dogs
and Feral Animals within Rural settlements and Suburban areas throughout our State,
FERALS-OUT have conducted and
Co-ordinated wild dog control in suburbs of Coastal Shires at Caboolture, Beachmere,
Bribie Island, Wamuran, Mt Mee, Narangba, Pine River's shire, Mitchelton,
Pullenvale/Moggill, Sunshine Coast, etc. Other Control programs carried out for Private
Government Corporations responsible for Environmental Park management such as Port of
Brisbane Corporation ("RAMSAR" listed), Airport Corporations, Local Government
Authorities. These feral animal control programs are designed for the benefit of native
animals and humans alike. Foxes, cats and hare have successfully been removed from these
"RAMSAR" listed sites, these very important sites are breeding grounds for many
species of birdlife including migratory shore birds known to be the preferred prey of
foxes and cats.
Natural Resources & Mines Zoologist conducting ground monitoring Pre & Post FERALS-OUT control program substantiated an 80% reduction in feral animal activity after the control program had been implemented. Our programs have been used as a "Model" for control of Wild Dogs and other Pest Animals at multi-agency workshops searching for solutions, Non lethal (possible prevention measures) and lethal (humane capture and euthanasia) of Pest Animals in Built-Up urban environments. We continue to contribute, through Local Government Authorities and NR&M, to broader studies and research into the control of wild dogs, foxes and other pest animals in urban areas. We undertake our control programs in collaboration with all stakeholders, Ferals Out is a member of the Maroochy Wild Dog Taskforce tackling the very public, sensitive issues of implementing "Best Practice" procedures currently available to manage pest animals along Queenslands Sunshine Coast. This was also the case in Townsville (July 2002), after a two year old girl was confronted and attacked while playing in her back yard. Ferals Out assisted the City Council in finding effective solutions to reduce the real risks posed by wild dogs interacting with humans in suburbia. Townsville has been free of wild dog interactions occurring on the scale leading up to July 2002 wild dog program. Recently three problem wild dogs were reported to Council Officers (Trained by Ferals Out), whom undertook patrols and caught all three problem wild dogs. To employ Ferals Out is to attempt to remove ALL feral/pest animals from your property, not just those which are known to be offensive. When Ferals Out gets called in it is to the most difficult and sensitive jobs; most often to cases where other control measures having failed or are unable to be implemented due to environmental impact and proximity to residential areas. Most of our clients whether property owners or government authorities, have already tried chemical control measures (Baiting) and shooting; Councils have tried cage trapping to rid themselves of the problem and it still exists.
