Home Range Responses of Feral Goats.

C Holt and G Pickles

The Rangeland Journal 18(1) 144 - 149
Published: 1996


The variability in size and the extent of the overlap of feral goat home ranges are important considerations when formulating control strategies. Radio telemetry data revealed home range sizes were similar to what was found in other studies performed in pastoral areas. This study confirms the need for a wide ranging cooperative approach, by neighbouring pastoral properties, to feral goat control if all the feral goats using an area are to be targeted. Aerial control activities had little effect on the home ranges of resident feral goats and so can continue to be an effective control tool without causing the reinfestation of previously cleared areas.
