Countless thousands of Sandy Wallabies (Macropus agilis) have long been a menace to the pastoral industry in the Kimberleys. These animals eat almost the same foods as the sheep and cattle and have substantially reduced the stock-carrying capacity of the river-frontage areas where they are found in the greatest numbers. Research into control methods was commenced in 1952 when Mr. L. A. Harrison undertook some investigations designed to ascertain the best line of approach to a poisoning campaign.
