The Australian brush tail possum was introduced into New Zealand from our always generous neighbour Australia in 1837 with the aim of establishing a fur trade. The problem was though that in its native land the possum is up against dingoes, bush fires and less tasty vegetation. In New Zealand there are no predators and lots and lots of very tasty and nutritious vegetation and as a result the have bred prolifically and spread like mad. Their numbers are estimated at about 70 million and annually they devour 8 million tonnes of vegetation. That equates to 20,000 tonnes (or 4000 truckloads) every night!
