Walgett Pest Animal Wrap

Thanks to all our Walgett landholders who are currently involved in their local spring wild dog baiting control programs!

North West Local Land Services has completed four of the seven wild dog baiting programs for Spring in Walgett. Wet weather has hindered these programs, but we are aiming to complete them by the end of June. There were over 11,000 baits ordered, with 62 landholders participating in these programs.

There has been an increase in reports about feral pigs within the area due to continual wet conditions.

The incentive programs have been successful in providing landholders with information sessions, dog/fox traps, camera’s, freezers, pig traps and baiting trailers. Most of these will be allocated within the next couple of weeks.

If you want to become involved in a group or an individual baiting program, contact Maddy Atkin, Walgett Biosecurity Officer on 0418 602 393 or maddie.atkin@lls.nsw.gov.au.
