Pest Animals

Several species of pest animals also use the GreenWay, including the Red Fox and stray cats. These animals hunt and eat small native animals, native birds and reptiles.  Others, such as Indian Myna birds, are agressive species that dominate other native species.  Pest animal control in an urban setting is complex and generally only undertaken by the Department of Environment, Climate Change and Water.
