SA's New Wild Dog Trapping Program

The wild dog trapping program in South Australia was launched by the State Government at the start of this month, with wild dogs continuing to move below the Dog Fence to areas further south than ever before.

Under the program, two full-time equivalent dog trappers have been funded as well as an extensive baiting program currently underway.

But is this enough to stop the dogs from breeding up and attacking the state's livestock industry?

SA Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Development Tim Whetstone, joined Flow FM's Country Viewpoint program to discuss.

Landholders who locate wild dogs on their properties are advised to contact their local NRM boards, or follow advice on the Primary Industries and Regions SA (PIRSA) website.

See Flow FM's coverage of the issue in our Victorian region here, and what is being done to try and combat the issue in NSW here.
