A study was commissioned by NR&M and undertaken by Rural Management Partners to estimate the cost of wild dogs and dingoes to Queensland’s rural industries, particularly the grazing industry.
The major findings of the report include: wild dogs cost the state $33 million per year in livestock losses, diseases spread and control
there are also opportunity costs resulting from reduced enterprise mix flexibility, and secondary impacts on rural communities due to substitutions of sheep for cattle
