The feral goat (Capra hircus)

The feral goat has established populations in a variety of habitats across Australia. It competes with native fauna and causes land degradation, threatening plant and animal species and ecological communities. The feral goat can be an agricultural pest, but also has commercial value and is harvested for its meat. To protect the environment, feral goat control programs are best undertaken in areas of high conservation value.
