A DROUGHT-STRICKEN Stanthorpe farming family struggling to keep their cattle alive say the death of four calves by domestic dogs could be the final straw. SO the council provide traps to the property owners that are having trouble with DOGS!
If this is the case why do the council have a pest management person employed to do this kind of job?
It should not be up to the owner to catch domestic dogs that are coming from town.
Comes back to the council they should be out there trying to trap these dogs and catch them for this property owner as I thought that is what their job was entitled as pest management.

HAPPENING more and more in the Stanthorpe area.
Keep your dogs on your property or face the consequences.
WE are the only people in our area who haven’t lost sheep/goats etc to wild dogs. Our two Maremma dogs provide round the clock protection for our sheep, ponies, chooks etc. Easy fix!

THE number of straying dogs in Stanthorpe is disturbing – I see them all the time. I lived in Inglewood for a few years and never saw any straying dogs there. Rural townsfolk should have greater awareness of this issue.

ANY battle with cancer is tough but, for Tamasin Stuart, complications and raising a seven-year-old daughter alone made her battle that much tougher.
OUR thoughts are with you Tamasin.
