Victorian fox and wild dog bounty collections start

Sheep Central, March 6, 2023

COLLECTIONS for Victoria’s fox and wild dog bounty scheme started in the state’s north-east today.

The collections will then move across the state, with participants being paid $10 for entire fox scalps for a $10 and $120 for entire wild dog body parts.

Participants need to register for the new digital payment system and should refresh their knowledge of the terms and conditions to ensure their submissions are acceptable. Visit:

Agriculture Victoria reminded participants that the Victorian Fox and Wild Dog Bounty is now digital. Agriculture Victoria introduced the new system last year to streamline the application process, reduce wait times at collection centres and allow participants to keep track of bounty applications.

To register for the digital system visit our bounty homepage and follow the prompts.

For assistance, please chat to our bounty collection staff on collections days or call the customer service centre on 136 186.

Acceptable entire fox scalps and entire wild dog body parts will be collected from eligible members of the public at specific dates and times, and from sites scheduled as collection centres. Refer to Bounty terms and conditions for more details.
