Controlling dogs in the pastoral zone is vital for the future of the wool industry in this zone. Currently, a lot of funding and energy is being put into tackling this issue, through the ongoing operations of the ‘Bite Back’ program.

Lisa Stevens, Dingo Project Officer, Natural Resources Arid Lands, knows that the best way to significantly reduce the impacts of wild dogs is to combine best practice wild dog control methods with a coordinated landscape-scale approach.Lisa Stevens

She was pleased to say that 68% of primary producers, south of the dog fence had participated in the Operation ‘Bite Back’ program and encouraged a combination of trapping, shooting and baiting (using a variation of baiting products) for best results.
