DELWP (Ovens) and ParksVic have notified UKVCA of the following planned undertaking next week (week beginning 4th May)…..
Wild dog trapping around Mt. Beauty/Tawonga South/Tawonga
DWELP will be setting soft leg traps on the edges of forest tracks and trails, right on the edge of town. Some of the tracks/areas include: Simmonds Creek Road, Simmonds Creek Track (runs from the end of Highland Court to Simmonds Creek Road), Vails Road area, Ryders Spur Track, Diggings Lane, and around some old dozer lines in the vicinity of Vails Hill, Hollands Hill and behind properties in Tawonga and Tawonga South.
NOTE: Some of the traps will be on the very edges of these tracks. All appropriate signage will be in place.
Please do not walk your dog off leash in these areas at this time. If you have a dog on a leash, it is suggested you walk in the middle of the track, and not let your dog sniff at the track edges. Last year, two domestic dogs were caught when trapping occurred in similar areas.
If you requite further information, please contact the DELWP office (Ovens) – 03 5731 1222
