Feral Deer – Draft of the Declared Animal Policy
February 9, 2018
In general terms, Livestock SA supports the draft policy on the management of feral deer in South Australia. It is obvious, and the draft policy concedes this, that the current level of control has not been effective at containing the spread or reducing the number of feral deer since 2006 under the first policy on feral deer. Much of the blame must rest on the deer industry and there needs to be more emphasis on the fencing standards required to stop farmed deer from escaping. More policing of standards is also required.
