South Burnett Regional Council and Gympie Regional Council in conjunction with the Bio-security Queensland are participating in a coordinated Wild Dog Baiting Program.
Failure to control wild dogs can result in livestock losses, attacks on domestic pets and the loss of native fauna. Landholders have a legislative responsibility to control declared pests on their land and participation in this program is an effective way to help meet this responsibility.
