    Going by the examples on the site it would definitely rule out Wallaby.....thank God for that.

    The examples of pig poo are more what I am familiar with and we do get the odd big dropping up there which are obviously big pig, but I know we have a lot of little pigs and I have never found anything that I have been able to positively identify as theirs. Do they look like big pig poo but smaller proportions? If so, there is an absence of their droppings.

    Cheers

    Definitely not wobbly, definitely not cat. Summer possum, feeding on all the good green tucker about at present, often a long ways from any trees

    My call is pig that has included in its diet some carcass material from dead stock etc.
    That's what gives it that dark glossy look. Shape is right too

    Now I am truly worried.
    Sharon saw this thread this evening and informed me that there has been a definite sighting of Wallaby on the loose in a back garden in the village 5 km up the road from here. There was nothing to suggest that it was a domesticated one that had escaped the coop.
    Apparently this information came to her from the partner of one of our district councillors here in Selwyn.

    This is coupled with starting to see tracks in the long grass up here not consistent with either deer or possum that I am familiar with , and the absence of any rooting along these tracks suggests to me that they are not pig either.
    This has all coincided with a large swath of forestry above us being taken out over the last 3 - 4 months. It has stopped now but the hillsides are bare and I am waiting to see the new patterns of animals here to see what has been driven out of their normal habitat. Are wallaby possibly in the mix as well?

    I shall most definitely be making more enquiries with the council and Doc tomorrow.

    Cheers
    Phil

    It’s way to big to be possum
    Shut up, get out & start pushing!

    Interesting @Trout.
    The tracks or tunnels through the grass are ones that I have not seen before except last year high on the hill just out of the bushline.
    These tracks have areas where an animal or animals have been lying in the grass as well. Definitely not deer from experience and to big for possum. Don't believe it is pig either as there is no other co-operating sign of them in these spots.

    Have made enquiries with DOC today and just waiting on a reply.

    Cheers
    Phil

    In all honesty if you had wallabies, I'd be very supprised that you haven't seen any. If they were there they would be down feeding on the crop paddocks too not just staying up in the long tussock, my money is on large possum shite. Still watching and awaiting results
