This report consists of three parts. Part one investigates the use of artificial baits for feral goat control, by examining a series of trials conducted by the Weeds and Pests Division of Manaaki Whenua-Landcare Research in 1990 and 1993. Part two discusses field trials of non-toxic polymer pig baits, undertaken on Molesworth Station in October 1991 by the Forest Animal Ecology section, Forest Research Institute, Christchurch. Part three describes the pen trials during the final year of a program to develop a dry pelleted cat bait and baiting strategy for feral cats. The trials discussed in part three were undertaken for the Department of Conservation by Manaaki Whenua-Landcare Research during 1989-94.
