A number of workshops are being held to give members of the community the opportunity to reduce the impact of wild dogs on private land.
The Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) is hosting 15 Wild Dog Management Zone (WDMZ) community workshops across Gippsland and north east Victoria commencing on 26 February.
DELWP Manager for Statewide Invasive Species Program Peter Austin said: “The workshops are an opportunity for the community to have input into the way dogs are controlled locally.
“Reducing the impact of wild dogs can be achieved by all land managers working together using a combination of trapping, baiting, shooting, exclusion fencing and good animal husbandry.
“The sessions will focus on local Wild Dog Controllers and what activity they have caught on their trail-cameras, as well as sharing their knowledge about current management techniques for wild dog control.
“The workshops will also involve discussions on what has worked well and what needs improving in our Wild Dog Management Zone Work Plans as new plans are developed for the coming year.
“We are looking forward to meeting community members in the coming weeks,” Mr Austin said
