Maclean's problems with flying foxes

Photo: Piper, Clarence River, Maclean.

Fascinating short piece in the Grafton Daily Examiner (10 January 2008) on Maclean's problems with its flying foxes.

For those who do not know Maclean, it is a town of 3,254 people on the Clarence River in the Northern Rivers district of New England/New South Wales.

More normally know for fish and its Scottish Festival, Maclean has a problem with its flying foxes. They keep on roosting in the wrong spot!

The town fathers have tried to move the colony, but they persist in trying to do their own thing. Pesky varmints!
