Another macropod today. The Bennetts wallaby, ironically known as the red-necked wallaby on mainland Australia, is one of Tasmania's most commonly seen native animals - and sadly also the most reviled by the more red-necked members of the Tasmanian population. Farmers of both crops and plantation trees frequently poison these docile creatures with 1080 and other toxins to prevent them damaging crops.
