Wild Dog Trapping Workshops
10 Apr 2012
Description

South West NRM has recently completed a series of free wild dog workshops in the western division.  These workshops have been held at Bollon, Quilpie, Charleville and Augathella and have been presented by Tony Townsend, a well-known and respected wild dog and pest specialist.

These workshops were instigated to improve local knowledge regarding wild dog management techniques.  Wild dogs cost Queensland producers over $30 million in killed and hurt stock annually and have effectively shut down the sheep and wool industry in an area historically known for it's quality grazing capabilities, and especially at a time of high sheep commodity prices.

Held over three days, the workshops covered a wide range of issues associated with pest animals including psychology, utilisation of lures and decoys, land managers experiences and alternative management techniques.
