Wild dog predation on livestock is taking a heavy economic and emotional toll on livestock producers in affected pastoral and agricultural areas. 

Under the Biosecurity and Agriculture Management Act 2007 landholders - landowners and occupiers - are responsible for wild dog control on their own land. However, for vertebrate animal pest control, everyone must ensure they use the most humane method available.

There are a number of control options available, including ground and aerial baiting with meat poisoned with 1080 (sodium fluoroacetate)canid pest ejectorstrapping using strychninefencing and to a lesser extent, trapping and shooting.
