Dingo urine saves lives

Tasmanian marsupial lives that is. Scientists back home have discovered that marsupials really really really don’t like dingo pee. They avoid it like the plague which means that farmers and the forestry industry can stop poisoning wildlife in order to protect crops. Spray the wee around and the critters stay away and the crops grow unmolested. Everybody wins.

Apparently it also makes a really lovely perfume.1

    Whatever would I do without my subscription to this blog? I’d still be shortening my life with worry over Tasmanian marsupials…;)

    Yay for safe marsupials!
    Wombats are, in my opinion, the second-best animal on earth. (The first being cockatiels.)

    How does one acquire dingo pee? Or is this one of those things I’m better off not knowing?

    Yes my question would be how are they getting this dingo pee. Because if it in a way that’s not very nice for the dingos have we really gained anything?

    Brandielle: The dingo pee in question is synthetic. No dingoes harmed.

    I wonder if it would work on raccoons and opossums… they keep munching on my herbs.

    I would try wolf or coyote pee. 🙂
