Observations on the food of feral cats Campbell Island
- Ecology Division, DSIR, Private Bag, Nelson, New Zealand
Feral cats (Felis catus) are very scarce on Campbell Island (52°S, 169°E). Scats were collected during three summer visits and later examined. Norway rats (Rattus norvegicus) were much the most important prey, although birds and insects were also taken.
