Wild Dog Management

Invitation to attend Wild Dog Management Zone Work Plan workshop

The Department of Environment and Primary Industries(DEPI) will hold a series of community workshops in Autumn to seek local input into the development of new Wild Dog Management Zone Work Plans for the 2014/15.DEPI is seeking local knowledge and experience from landholders to develop local approaches for wild dog control in each of the 15 management zones across Gippsland and the north east.The work plans will specify operational targets for both government and community wild dog control efforts on private and public land over the coming year and ensure a coordinated, integrated approach to wild dog management.The plans will enable, industry and government to more effectively work together using all available tools including trapping, baiting, shooting, exclusion fencing and good animal husbandry to reduce the impacts of wild dogs.

The workshops to be held in March and April will provide local communities with an opportunity to contribute to these plans to ensure local knowledge is captured and put to best effect.
