Have your say on wild dogs

THE North Coast Livestock Health and Pest Authority is calling for public comment on wild dog management.

The authority, in consultation with Forests New South Wales, the Department of Environmental Climate Change and Water and landholders, has produced a draft report that will be available for public scrutiny from April 4 – 29.

Senior ranger Dean Chamberlain said the plan would form a basis for a cooperative and coordinated control program for the next four years.

"It sets out action that will be taken by stakeholders where wild dog problems occur. These actions comply with the requirements of the relevant legislation and each stakeholder is committed to meeting their obligations," Mr Chamberlain said.

North Coast LHPA rangers are assisting in the planning of group wild dog programs across the authority district and are available to attend local meetings and discuss control procedures, including the safe use of 1080 baits.

The draft report can be viewed at www.lhpa.org.au/districts/northcoast or from North Coast LHPA offices upon request.
