Pets as predators on DoC's pest-free islands

From Sunday Morning, 7:12 am on 17 May 2015

The Department of Conservation is warning pet owners to keep their furry friends well away from predator-free islands after a cat jumped over the side of a boat and survived four and a half months on the Urupukapuka Island Recreation Reserve sanctuary in the Bay of Islands. The feline's two legged guardian talks about what led to missing 'Missy', then local DoC ranger Helen Ough-Dealy advises on the best course of action with a conservation approach.
