Council bait plan targets wild dogs
WILD dog attacks can cause severe economic and emotional impacts and Bundaberg Regional Council is calling on the region’s landholders to take part in its 1080 baiting program.
A spokesman for the council, Cr Danny Rowleson, said baiting programs only achieved positive results when as many landholders as possible participated.
“The control of wild dogs has become a significant problem throughout the region and council wants to work with rural landholders to curb that problem,” Cr Rowleson said.
By registering for this program by September 17, landholders will be eligible to receive 20 free baits.
“We also encourage landholders to form baiting groups with their neighbours to improve the effectiveness of the program,” he said.
Distribution of the baits will be undertaken on Tuesday, September 22.
