Endangered bilbies

Bilbies are threatened, especially by cats, but also by foxes and by their competitors, rabbits.

A roo shooter, Frank Manthey, head of the Save the Bilbies Fund, is leading the effort to conserve them.

We have shot 3,000 cats and [sic] something like 16 days just around where the bilbies are and we're running out of money like our government, the Queensland Government I hound the doors in there. We've spent about $55-60,000, we the bilby fund are trying to do what we can.
There are apparently 23 million feral cats in Australia. We'd all need to just kill one each.
