CAT, FELIS CATUS

This aggressive male cat was one of 140 trapped to help reduce impacts on the endangered red-tailed phascogale, a small carnivorous marsupial that has suffered an estimated 99 per cent reduction in its distribution since European settlement. Feral cats and foxes are now among the main threats to this unique species.
