Snare Hunt 30 May 2015
TOTAL OF 12 SNARES FOUND AND REMOVED
Community members met up at 8am and headed out to Scary Cliffs, besides looking for snares we
were also looking for a lost dog. It has to be noted that although we have had a very dry summer the alien
vegetation was thick and dense and showed no signs of winter drying whatsoever, this made accessibility very
difficult. Areas we previous covered in Snare Hunt Oct 2014 were so infested and overgrown with litsea, it has
grown in such close proximity to each other that it resembles bamboo, thick and dense, there were no signs of
wildlife in these areas.
The youngest member ever to come on a snare hunt and she really enjoyed the outdoor activity.
Scenic views as we made progress and explored the environment, it was hot and the morning due saturated our
clothing as we waded through the undergrowth in search of snares.
Insects of interest were seen on route and the find of an old buck skull. A total of 12 snares were found and
Causality from the bush, not too serious. Overall a most rewarding and enjoyable morning by bush
wacking Mount Morelanders.
Thank you to all who came and supported this event.
