Wild dogs

Martin has been mustering in preparation for lambmarking next week. He came home after mustering one particular paddock and commented on the dead ewes he had seen. This morning he came across a sight that confirmed our suspicions....3 half grown dingo pups drinking at a boredrain. He was able to run one down, kill it and scalp it (the council pays a bounty on scalps). So one down and two to go. He put out some baits this arvo but they are fairly old, so not hopeful there. We know of another dog on the other side of our property but it seems to be passing through and killing a sheep in each paddock as it goes. There's an aerial baiting campaign in about 3 far as we're concerned, it can't come soon enough.

oh how darn annoying! There have been quite a few attacks locally here - just pig dogs - but damaging nonetheless!
