The Land Newspaper led with "DogFight" last week as its headline, even in the face of the ongoing equine influenza outbreak dominating most rural news. It is an indication of the toll taken on graziers when wild dogs are attacking. This particular story came from the north of NSW, but similar cries for help are heard from many places. The Invasive Animals CRC has a project team in place trying to roll out a "nil tenure" appoach to wild dog management whereby control is based on dog ecology and not property ownership. The model has worked well in other places, but in northern NSW the scale of the roll-out is at a completely different level. For example, Project Officer Dr. Guy Ballard of participated in 99 separate meetings in his first five months on the job. I suspect more resources are needed if we are really to get on top of the dog issue.
