Wild Dog & Feral Pig
Baiting Program May 2018

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 these 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 from Monday 21 May to Friday 25 May 2018.

For further information and to register your intention of attending a baiting station please contact Council’s Stock Route & Pest Officer, Kerry Hayes on (07) 4189 9312.

All participants must register their intention to conduct baiting no later than Friday 11 May 2018.

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
