Local communities, groups and individuals have been given until May 12 to have their say on the 2017-21 NSW Wild Dog Management Strategy.
NSW DPI invasive species strategy manager Quentin Hart said public input was an important part of the process to improve management of 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.’’
The strategy will guide specific action and help define the roles and responsibilities of government agencies, public and private land managers and other community members in the management of wild dogs.
