Wild dog probem in the Central West.

Wild dogs are becoming a more serious issue in the Central West with two dogs being caught over the last few weeks.

Landowners Graham Woods, Dubbo and Mike Yeo, Merrygoen had been working closely with Local Land Services and dog trapper John Ward to trap the wild dogs on their properties.

The Dubbo animal killed more than 60 sheep over the past two summers, while the Merrygoen dog had not been known to attack livestock.

Local Land Services senior biosecurity officer, Rhett Robinson said wild dogs are becoming a serious issue for livestock producers in the Central West.

“Usually any wild dog reports are rare but numbers are increasing with over a dozen reports in the last 12 months,” Mr Robinson said.
