This page has been set up in response to your concerns and suggestions.
In 2012 when the Newman led Qld Government slashed the environmental protection laws it also withdrew funding for feral pig control.
Since then, the onus has been placed on private landowners to manage and dispose of any trapped pigs. Local council offers limited support by providing traps for a fee. Many small urban house lots back onto rain forest where the pigs breed. More and more reports are being heard of problems with pigs entering private yards.
Through this page we will record your reports and pass the information on to the local council and land care organisations.
Please spread the word. The higher number of entries received, the more we can raise awareness and pressure for action.
