Use of feral animals in research

There is a need for some special consideration of the ethics of vertebrate pest research for two reasons. Firstly, feral animals are described and legislated for as both “pests” and “noxious animals”. Also, in much of the community, there is a perception that there is a reduced requirement for animal welfare and ethical consideration in dealing with these animals.
