Feral cats prove a devil of a problem in Tasmania

Activists call for a cull of feral cats in Australia's island state where they are threatening native species.

    Wildlife activists are calling for a cull of feral cats in Australia's island state, Tasmania, where they are breeding out of control - outnumbering humans two to one and threatening livestock and native species.

    Cats eat small mammals, lizards and insects - traditionally the prey of animals native to Australia.
