Release experiences

Post  David on Wed Mar 04, 2009 5:56 am

We are coming up to our next lot of releases. We live in wombat central!! We are concerned as to how many wombats we can continue to release in this area without creating a problem. We would be interested in other members experiences and how they handled them?
