Stanthorpe Border Post - - NEWS YOUR SAY -

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.

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.
