Native animals killed through by - catch
Data relates to calendar years as reported to MPI. The only native animals captured in 2013 were from one field trip when 2 rifleman were caught in commercially available sticky traps set to sample invertebrates. Both birds regrettably had to be euthanased, however the capture method was subsequently modified with a wire frame, after which no additional vertebrate species were captured.
