TAS Country : August 12th 2010
4 Tasmanian Country Friday, August 13, 2010 News Fox fighters undeterred Suggestions by Melbourne scientists Clive Marks that fox scepticism is valid are being taken seriously by Tasmania's fox hunters, but that won't stop the fight. Jennifer Crawley reports. CLAIMS by a Melbourne expert of bad science in Tasmania's fox hunt have alarmed the state's fox fighters. The interstate expert's view could turn public opinion against the eradi- cation program, according to program chief Alan Johnson. ''We are very, very dependent on maintaining community support for the program,'' Mr Johnson said. ''And the claims do affect the general morale of staff.'' Fox program liaison officer Dave Sayers said scientist Clive Marks's comments were part of ''how science works''. But Mr s said the fox eradication program was attempting to do some- thing never attempted before --- to wipe out foxes before they established. And the science behind it was new, Mr Sayers said. ''Eradicating foxes in the establish- ment phase has never been done in the world,'' Mr Sayers said. ''The science is small and is on-going as we carry out this program and there is no body of literature to align to.'' Claims by Mebourne scientist Clive Marks that ''blind belief'' is propelling Tasmania's fox eradication program would be discussed at the next meeting of technical advisers, Mr Johnson said. ''Dr Marks is respected in the field,'' he said. ''We are not disregarding his comments. We are spending significant amounts of public funds and we should be subjected to scrutiny.'' Signed access licences are necessary before workers are allowed on to properties to lay baits and traps, carry guns or employ trained sniffer dogs to look for scats. Staff say they are encouraged by the number of landowners signing licences in the south of the state but they want to see more. 03669 Prices published are pre-promotional, further discounts will be applied at time of quotation.
