Five dollar bounty on feral pigs in QLD proposed

Big news for hunters in Queensland, as new laws have been proposed, pushing for a $5 bounty for every pig put down. Standing at about 24 million nation-wide, feral pigs are notorious pests, responsible for spreading weeds, destroying crops and livestock, and carrying disease. Some local councils argue that in a state that has already been ravaged by drought, the further threat of wild pigs needs to be dealt with urgently. As such, humane eradication of the feral threat is a reasonable solution.

Proposed at the Local Government Association of Queensland's (LGAQ) annual conference on Wednesday, the "Snout Bounty" pushes for both Councils and State Government to offer matched funding to pass the new law. If the bill passes in Queensland, its supporters hope it will eventually be implemented Australia-wide.  Read the full article here on the Courier Mail.
