Western suburb cats out at night have been caught on a network of secret spy cameras. The 38 hidden motion-activated cameras were set up in parks and bush across the western suburbs for a month. Bold Park, Swanbourne beach and Minim Cove were among the sites targeted. The cameras, positioned near scented lures, recorded 73 cats, 35 rabbits and five foxes over 30 days.
Retired Mt Claremont pharmacist Brian Appleyard has helped solve a 433-year-old Tudor mystery. It’s a story that is literally straight from the pages of Alice in Wonderland.
