LOCAL communities, groups and individuals have been granted an extra week until May 12 to have their say in developing the NSW Wild Dog Management Strategy 2017-2021.
NSW Department of Primary Industries invasive species strategy manager, Quentin Hart, said public input was an important part of the process to better manage wild dogs.
“The aim is to reduce negative impacts on communities,” Mr Hart said.
“Wild dogs attack livestock, pets and people, causing physical, emotional and financial distress to farming and urban communities.”
Public input is essential in developing an effective strategy to guide specific action and help define the roles and responsibilities of government agencies, public and private land managers and other community members in managing wild dogs.
The NSW Government said it is committed to striving for better outcomes from wild dog management and encouraging public involvement in the development of an effective strategy.
