quote1Best Practice in wild dog management

Best practice for wild dog management aims to deliver safe, efficient and humane outcomes that support continuing economic activity while being socially acceptable and environmentally sustainable.

Best practice wild dog management must be well planned, incorporate a structured and systematic risk-based approach, and be based on a clear view of what is to be done and how effectiveness is to be measured. In addition, control tools (e.g. trapping, baiting, shooting, netting or electric barrier fencing) must be carried out at a high level of efficiency, closely integrated with each other, and comply with relevant legislation.

The National Wild Dog Action Plan is an industry initiative endorsed by Government.
