THOUSANDS OF WILD DOG BAITS TO BE LAID

Wild dog baiting programs have commenced across New South Wales in a bid to curb the rising number of pests.

This year’s offensive will see 16,000 ground baits laid across 160 properties, covering an area of around 260,000 hectares across the Northern Tablelands and North West region.

Landholders are now able to use canid pest ejectors, a new technology designed to specifically target dogs and foxes.

Wild dogs cause an estimated $11 million worth of damage to the state’s primary industries sector every year.
