A possum control operation is due to start in the Mount Cargill area in this month. 
The operation is part of the TBfree programme, managed by OSPRI, which includes the monitoring and TB testing of herds, pest management, controls on the movement of deer and cattle in the area, research and survey operations. Possums are the main carrier of bovine TB to cattle and deer.
