Wild Dog Baiting Program
South Burnett Regional Council in conjunction with Biosecurity Queensland are participating in a Coordinated Wild Dog Baiting Program. Wild Dogs can have a significant financial impact on land holders income and resources from loss of livestock and attacks on domestic pets. They also impact on our environment and native fauna. Landholders have both a good neighbour and legislative responsibility to control declared pests on their land and participation in this program is an effective way to help meet this responsibility.
