    This reminded me of something I'd read concerning their spread closer to urban areas. I don't think this is the exact article I read at the time but it confirms the same...

    If it's family pets or even kids start getting mauled it might generate a bit more of a fuss than farmers losing stock.

    Without having read that article as yet I can tell you that they are on the fringes of many substantial towns in Qld and they cause plenty of trouble.
