Written Notification of Extended Baiting Program

To the house holder                                                     

Dear Sir / Madam,

Cherbourg Aboriginal Shire Council is participating in a coordinated and extended Wild Dog Baiting Program.

Wild Dogs can have a significant financial impact on land holders income and resources from loss of livestock and attacks on domestic pets.  They also impact on our environment and native fauna.

Councils have a legislative responsibility to control declared pests on their land and participation in this program is an effective way to help meet this responsibility.

Baits will be laid on lot 399 plan SP280490 and lot 47 plan FY274 surrounding Cherbourg Town, .and Farm land on: Monday 16th March 2020

Baits will be collected on Monday 25th May 2020

Baits will be checked weekly every Wednesday over this period

Protection of domestic and working dogs

Owners of domestic and working dogs are advised to restrain and or muzzle their dogs during the baiting program to minimize the risk of dogs wandering and coming into contact with poison baits.

Should you have any further queries, or require any information relating to the Dog Baiting Program, please contact  Colin Twaddle Farm Manager on 0427763041

Yours sincerely

Chatur Zala

Chief Executive Officer
