Thread: Fox Bounty

    Fox Bounty

    Hi all,

    A friend in Australia forwarded me this article.

    The Victorian Goverment is going to be paying a bounty for all foxes and wild dogs shot in the state.

    Fox / Wild Dog bounty - Department of Primary Industries

    I don't fancy providing the evidence though to claim the bounty though.

    Me too, I would not be happy having to partly skin as per below!!

    But saying that I have seen some photo's or people that over the course of a weekend may shoot 100 plus animals. That could end up making it worth while getting smelly!!!

    "This initiative will deliver on the Government’s commitment to reinstate a fox and wild dog bounty and reward eligible Victorian hunters with a $10 bounty reward for each fox killed and $50 for each wild dog killed, subject to the terms and conditions in this document."
