Suspected fox scats to undergo testing. 02/03/2006. ABC News Online

Tests will be done on animal scats from the area that a suspected fox carcass in Tasmania's north-west was found.

The fox task force is searching for signs of activity around Lillico, west of Devonport, where the carcass was found late last year.

Six members of the fox task force are searching the area for scats, a den or any other sign of foxes.

They have found animal scats in the area that will be sent for testing.

But the manager of the fox task force Chris Parker says they could be from another small animal like a cat or quoll.

"They're very similar to cats, quolls in Tasmania as well, although there's not really a very high population of quolls in that area, so they really can be any type of animal," he said.

Test results on the carcass are expected this afternoon.
