Top Tasmanian devil threats Historically, early European settlers considered the Tasmanian devil a nuisance that raided poultry coops and killed valuable livestock 1 2 3. As a consequence, this iconic species was persecuted for many years through trapping and poisoning 1 3. In the face of persecution, deforestation, and a severe epidemic in the early 20thcentury, the Tasmanian devil became extremely rare, until a protective law was passed in that saw its numbers gradually rise again 3. Although systematic poisoning resumed with questionable merit in the s and s, by this stage the population had recovered sufficiently for the species to be abundant in many parts of Tasmania 2. Then in the mid s, disaster struck when a number of Tasmanian devils were sighted with strange facial tumours, later discovered to be a fatal cancer now commonly known as Devil Facial Tumour Disease DFTD 3 4 5.
