An unwelcome Wallaby has hopped into fresh territory on this side of the ditch, prompting a full scale investigating including DNA testing and sniffer dogs. The female that was found in the small coastal Taranaki town of Mōkau - had a badly broken leg. Wallabies are considered a pest, as they eat through crops and forestry. They're already in the Bay of Plenty, but authorities have been battling to stop their spread. And as Brett Bailey from Environment Waikato explains his one was not alone. If you see a wallaby bounding around, Environment Waikato wants to hear from you. Give them a call on 0800 800 401 or report it online at www.reportwallabies.nz
