Meeting will discuss wild dogs
The North Coast Livestock Health and Pest Authority is holding a public meeting at Mullumbimby for anyone seeking more information on controlling wild dogs.
To be held at Mullumbimby Ex-Services Club next Tuesday at 6pm, speakers will include rangers from the authority, a pest management officer from National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) and rangers from Byron and Tweed councils.
General manager of the North Coast LHPA, Brian McInnes, said the meeting was a proactive step by the authority to inform landholders of their options for controlling wild dogs and help co-ordinate group baiting programs.
“This meeting will enable all members of the community, not just those on the land, to find out how they can work together with the LHPA, their local council and the NPWS in combating the wild dog problem,” he said. “Information will be provided at the meeting to outline all the important factors that landholders need to consider when undertaking wild dog control, such as methods, timing, location and implementation.
“Another important factor when carrying out control is working with your neighbours, and this meeting will allow landholders to learn more about group baiting programs in their area.”
