Wild dog numbers explode in Qld
Queensland's summer of drenching rains has led to an explosion in the state's wild dog population.
The big wet prevented regular canine culling efforts, leaving livestock and the land's biodiversity vulnerable.
Agriculture Minister Tim Mulherin on Wednesday released the Wild Dog Management Strategy, aimed at controlling wild dogs, including dingoes, dingo-hybrids and domestic dogs turned feral.
