Hunting an option for feral animal control

Feral animal control is a significant issue for all rural land managers. Feral pigs, goats and wild dogs not only cause significant environmental damage but can significantly impact on the livelihoods of graziers and farmers.

As the manager of 2.9 million hectares of State forests, Forests NSW is working with the Game Council of NSW to identify areas of forests that could be opened-up to hunters as part of an integrated approach to feral animal control.
