In outstanding news for the Australian environment, the Environment Minister has banned the import of the African Serval hybrid Savannah Cat. This cat could very well have been an even greater environmental disaster than the typical household cat which has gone feral all over the country. Commonsense has at least prevailed with the Serval and its hybrid.

Mr Garrett has said that there are some 12 million feral cats in Australia. The feral cat is perhaps the greatest environmental pest that Australia needs to come to grips with, along with foxes and the Cane Toad.
