4ZZZ launched its glorious tradition of counting down listeners' 100 favourite songs on New Year's Day 1977. More than 10 years later, 2JJJ in Sydney (which employed many ex-Zed staff) began conducting its own Hot 100. Because 4ZZZ held the rights to the name Hot 100, there was a little bit of legal biffo when TripleJ became a national broadcaster, so they changed the name of their survey to the "Hottest 100".
Introduced foxes causing extensive damage in NSW and ACT
The victims of these elusive foxes include native wildlife such as echidnas, small farm animals and backyard chickens.
In Canberra, it is believed there are an average of 15 foxes per square kilometre.
Park rangers are planning to place nearly 3000 fox baits in an attempt to control the pests, but admit they are struggling to gain the upper hand in urban areas.
The European Red Fox was introduced to Australia in the late eighteen hundreds and causes significant environmental destruction and economic loss to farmers.
