Roos on road

 Warning for those travelling north for school holidays, watch out for roos and goats from Overlander north to Carnarvon.

 

Went down to Shark Bay last Monday before the road clean up patrol had gone through and there was approx 30-40 fresh carcasses on the roadside. Will be heading down again tomorrow and will update if it is the same.

Woomarel

 I used to cull Woomarel and if there is a bit of local rain a type of green shoot sprouts next to the road verge and goats/roos love it.The shire/main roads should contract a local shooter to clean up the road down to the lookout and back

Waroora

 I culled Waroora as well for a few months.It is a purebred Merino for wool station so If you ask Marty nicely he may get you to do any goats you see and Dorper sheep as they will cross breed with the merinos

I think duncan61 is referring to the cross breeding of Dorper sheep and merinos.
