The South Burnett Regional Council, in conjunction with Bio-security Queensland, will be participating in a co-ordinated wild dog baiting program next month.
Baits will be distributed from stations throughout the South Burnett from May 14-18.
A Council spokesman said landholders had a legislative responsiblity to control declared pests on their land and participation in this program was an effective way to help meet this responsibility.
Failure to control wild dogs can result in livestock losses, attacks on domestic pets and the loss of native fauna.
For further information and to register your intention of attending a baiting station, contact Council’s Stock Route & Pest Officer Kerry Hayes on (07) 4189-9312.
All participants must register their intention to conduct baiting.
