The real question is, what was it doing in the tent in the first place?

Excuse my ignorance, I know more about spotted quolls than I do Charnwood! Why all of the drug references to the suburb?

Does anyone know why the quoll was forcibly evicted from Charnwood, the suburb in which it chose to live? Would quolls be evicted from eco-friendly suburbs like Red Hill or Forde?

Do you mean “Decimate the landscape,and alter the natural watercourse” eco-friendly!!Yeah,forde is a great place to build your Mc-Mansion..get real,don’t believe everything you get fed..

The CT today reports a house in Charnwood selling for $900,000. Who exactly was the dope now?

There’s some pretty decent houses up the top of Charnwood and they have sweeping views of the mountains. However, the one you are talking about is a shop/ residential complex, thus the high price tag.

Good to see the CT is researching their material rather than just surfing allhomes.

Its goo do see that people are quick to jump on the bandwagon and bag out charnwood because of its history,without actually visiting it..F@#KING SNOBS…P.S.don’t live in c/wood!!

Quolls are cool,saw heaps in tassie a few years ago,i think the ones that you get around here are bigger than the southern cousins though!!

Maybe it’s just an interbred bird!

perhaps it use to live where the prison is now located and moved on due to fear of radiation?

its great news, quolls are awesome creatures, i hope this is a sign of their resilience.

Apparently quolls can range over hundreds and hundreds of hectares when after food, so this bloke could have come from anywhere.

Although I’m betting there’s a lonely quoll on Mount Rogers wondering where his/ her friend is.

Wonder why they are so rare… Pretty ugly animals though – it looks like a giant rat.

What’s the asking price for the house without the hydroponic set-up?

Walked dogs on Mt Rogers behind Charnwood have been quite restless (and it is not because they being anal retentive to save their owners a fine – whoever saw a ranger on Mt Rogers anyway!)and although the presence of foxes is more likely, it could be scenting a wandering quoll.

Quolls are rare because they are very partial to backyard chooks, and in the good old days, when they were called wild cats, they were susceptible to a .22. (If it moves, shoot it – if it grows – chop it down.)

They do, however make good pets, except that it is probably illegal now.

Maybe it was dumped after some Charnwegian found that it could not swap it for an ounce.

The bird is probably involved in a breeding program run by those guys who got busted smuggling heroin inside birds lately.

Charny dope birds.
