We have had a few queries as to how people should report Wild Dog sightings. The current method is to contact the relevant Senior Wild Dog Controller (SWDC) who manages a number of Wild Dog Controllers across Gippsland. The SWDC’s within East Gippsland are:
Glenn Lineham: 0428 516 579 (Generic areas; Bairnsdale/Dargo; Omeo/Swifts Ck/Benambra/Ensay; Warragul/Erica)
Geoff Hodge: 0427 321312 (Buchan/Gelantipy; Orbost/Cann River; Bendoc/Bonang/Tubbut; Licola/Maffra)
A lot of people contact their local Wild Dog Controllers (WDC) as well, but at this stage its the SWDCs they are meant to call to report initially, so they can better manage their staff across districts if need be.
