The ACT is the last jurisdiction to scrap the program, which saw stray cats trapped, desexed and then returned to the streets. […] The CSIRO is investigating the use of gene drive technology which spreads a genetic trait, such as sex, through a pest population’s DNA, increasing the likelihood of offspring inheriting that gene.
