Shooting is used either to directly reduce numbers of pest birds through killing or more commonly as a scaring or dispersal strategy. Shooting may have short-term advantages but the technique is often labour intensive, opportunistic and may have limited value in bird control.
This standard operating procedure (SOP) is a guide only; it does not replace or override the legislation that applies in the relevent state or territory jurisdiction. The SOP should only be used subject to the applicable legal requirements (including OH&S) operating in the relevent jurisdication.
