Dog bait­ing on the agenda

The Chronicle - - ON THE MAP -

ST GE­ORGE:

THE Balonne Shire Coun­cil is step­ping up its pro­gram to re­duce the num­ber of wild dogs in the re­gion with an up­com­ing wild dog bait­ing cam­paign.

Mayor Richard Marsh said wild dogs were an on­go­ing is­sue and the coun­cil was work­ing with other agen­cies to ben­e­fit land­hold­ers.

“Our team’s Wild Dog Con­trol Pro­gram, along with trap­ping pro­grams, is hav­ing an ef­fect on wild dog num­bers, and the con­struc­tion of ex­clu­sion fences in our re­gion has seen lamb­ing num­bers in­crease,” Cr Marsh said.
