Wild dogs are a significant threat to Victoria’s livestock industry, at an estimated cost of $13–18 million per year. Their impact on productivity, animal welfare and social wellbeing requires an action plan to address the wild dog issue over the five years to 2019. This plan’s implementation is the responsibility of all stakeholders, recognising all land managers (private and government) are responsible for wild dog management.

The Victorian Government understands the impacts that wild dogs can have on the welfare of livestock, the livelihood and wellbeing of livestock producers, and in some situations on environmental values. As a result, the government accepted the Directions Statement for the Wild Dog Management Program in Victoria, developed by the Victorian Wild Dog Control Advisory Committee (see attachment 1). This plan describes how to achieve that strategic direction.
