Feral goat trapping

Images show:
1. Feral goats entering a jump-down trap built around Muckety Dam in Danggali Conservation Park, South Australia. The dam, in near-level terrain, was made by excavating a large hole in the soil forming the bed of a shallow watercourse.
2. Feral goats caught in a jump-down trap at Gleeson Well, Vulkathunha-Gammon Ranges National Park, South Australia. The goats jumped down off the stone ramp to get a drink, and did not find their way out. The trough was supplied with water from a nearby tank kept full by a windmill on a bore. Note the overgrazed, bare ground around the trap.
