Wild Dog Control Wild Dog Control


The term 'wild dog' refers collectively to purebred dingoes, dingo hybrids, and domestic dogs that have escaped or been deliberately released. In central southern Queensland a wild dog barrier fence helps protect 26.5 million hectares of sheep and cattle country from wild dog impacts.

You can participate in national wild dog mapping by reporting populations.

The wild dog is a Class 2 declared animal under Queensland legislation. It is the responsibility of landholders to control wild dogs on their land.
