Council

Wild Dog Control and Planning Days to be held at Goomburra and Karara

On Wednesday, 14 February, Southern Downs Regional Council in conjunction with Granite Borders Landcare Committee will host a wild dog control and planning day from 9:00 am to 3:15 pm at Goomburra Hall, 17 Inverramsay Road.

 

The aim of the day is to reduce wild dog predation levels to an acceptable level within the control area by formulating and implementing a working wild dog strategy.

 

The day has been funded by the Queensland Feral Pest Initiative. Funding for the Southern Downs Regional Council Queensland Feral Pest Initiative project is provided through the Queensland Government to support the growth of a productive and prosperous food and fibre sector in Queensland. 

 

Some of the topics covered include predicting will dog movements and breeding cycles, control activities, the history of wild dog activity in the area, known dog routes and key baiting areas, the use of 1080 baits, identifying signs of pest animals and more.

 

All landowners in the Goomburra and surrounding areas of Main Range are encouraged to attend the day to find out more about wild dogs and what can be done to control them. Council is encouraging participation from all landholders, regardless of whether they run stock or not.

Some landholders may not be aware they have wild dogs living on or travelling through their land.

The same control and planning day will be held at Karara on Thursday, 15 February at Karara Hall from 9:00am – 3:15pm.

 

Please RSVP to Mandy Craig, Granite Borders Landcare, Tenterfield, on 02 67 363 500.
