New Queensland strategy to bring wild dogs to heel
A NEW strategy to manage wild dogs in Queensland aims to reduce the multi-million dollar impact of the pests on the economy, environment and social amenity.
The Queensland Dog Offensive Group (QDOG) developed the new five-year strategy in consultation with stakeholders, according to Minister for Agricultural, Industry Development and Fisheries and Minister for Rural Communities Mark Furner.
“The Queensland Wild Dog Management Strategy 2021-2026 provides state-wide coordination and direction to wild dog management,” Mr Furner said.
The Strategy is complementary to the National Wild Dog Action Plan 2020-2030, which guides the implementation of a nationally-agree framework for wild dog management.
