Aborigines on horseback mustering feral goats in Worturpa Pound, in the heart of the mountains in the Vulkathunha-Gammon Ranges National Park, South Australia. The team mustered goats mainly from the more open, flatter country, sometimes aided by traps erected around water points. The musterers would come back for another attempt after several weeks or months, when some of the goats previously left behind in inaccessible areas had come out onto easier ground. Over several years, this process substantially reduced the number of goats in the park.
