Fox bounty

By Cobram Courier

The Victorian Government’s fox and wild dog bounty has started again.

Agriculture Victoria leading biosecurity officer Nigel Roberts said the fox and wild dog bounty had been running in Victoria since 2011.

Eligible participants can submit entire fox scalps for a $10 reward and entire wild dog skin pieces for a $120 reward during scheduled collection times.

Mr Roberts urged hunters to refresh their knowledge with the terms and conditions of the bounty to make sure the pieces they submit were acceptable and to check the collection centre open times as there have been scheduling changes this year due to public holidays.

Hunters are reminded the collection of entire wild dog skin pieces for the north west wild dog control area was by appointment only.
