Wild dog control at watering points during drought

Wild-dogWith dry conditions persisting across much of eastern Australia, reports of wild dog sightings and activity are on the rise as dogs move across the landscape in search of food and water.

In the NSW Western Division, AWI wild dog coordinator Bruce Duncan is urging land managers to remember the nil tenure principle and stick to best practice by:

  • talking to your neighbours – share the problem and the solution
  • coordinating your control efforts
  • seeking advice on the best control tools and methods for your area and how to use them
  • use the dry conditions to your advantage by focusing control efforts around watering points

To help plan your approach check out the Glovebox Guide for Managing Wild DogsA Field Guide to Poison Baiting: Dogs and Foxes and other resources at PestSmart
