Fox and dog bounty is well received

The State Government’s extension of the recently re-introduced fox bounty across Victoria has been welcomed by Nationals Member for Benalla, Bill Sykes.

Dr Sykes said, “I and my Nationals colleagues, along with the VFF and shooters, campaigned long and hard for an ongoing State wide fox bounty.

“It’s just common sense but there will need to be a lot more money added to the $1m allocated by the DPI.

“The DSE should at least match the $1m given that a large number of the State’s foxes live and breed on the public land managed by DSE.”

Dr Sykes concluded, “The fox bounty must be ongoing as part of a coordinated fox control program – otherwise fox numbers will re-bound as soon as the bounty is lifted or control activities ease up.”
