The traditional and commonly held attitude towards pest animals is that if they are present, they are causing significant damage and must be controlled. Whilst it is true that a pest animal will usually have some impact, the issues to be considered are: the extent of this impact; whether there are more significant impacts on the agricultural production or conservation values being protected; and whether it is technically, economically or socially feasible or sensible to do anything about this impact.
