Wild Dog & Feral Pig Baiting Program May 2017

Council in conjunction with the Bio-security Queensland are participating in a coordinated Wild Dog & Feral Pig Baiting Program.  Failure to control wild dogs and feral pigs can result in livestock losses, attacks on domestic pets and the loss of native fauna. Landholders have a legislative responsibility to control declared pests on their land and participation in this program is an effective way to help meet this responsibility.

Baiting stations will be held throughout the South Burnett between 8-12 May 2017.  For further information and to register your intention of attending a baiting station please contact:

Council’s Stock Route & Pest Officer, Kerry Hayes on 4189 9100.

All participants must register their intention to conduct baiting no later than Friday 28 April 2017.

Protection of domestic and working dogs

Owners of domestic and working dogs are advised to restrain and or muzzle their dogs during the baiting program to minimise the risk of dogs wandering and coming into contact with poison baits.
