20 year comeback

The western quoll, or chuditch, has not been seen in Western Australia's capital city of Perth in over 20 years.

I missed this story earlier, but in April a member of the public spotted a young male in the backyard of his suburban home at Wandi.

The animal had to be euthanased as it was badly injured, but wildlife officers are happy to see the species making a comeback. They attribute the migration into Perth as being helped by state fox baiting programs.
