It has been reported by The Observer that just one feral cat will kill at least 3,650 native animals.

According to the national mapping results in the Gladstone region one "ginger" cat was spotted in Marmor.

However if you take a walk down Goondoon St at night it's clear that feral cats are roaming freely.

Gladstone Mayor Gail Sellers said the Council is reviewing its current cat trap hire program.

"Council has developed systems to track and determine the numbers and locations of feral cats within the region and is currently reviewing these statistics," the Mayor said.    

If anyone wishes to hire a cat trap please contact Council on 497007000.
