Fox bounty resumes in Australian state

The Fox and Wild Dog Bounty is underway in Victoria, Australia. Collections commenced on 6 March 2017. The collection period for the fox and wild dog bounty will run from March until the end of October, consistent with previous years.

Eligible participants can submit entire fox scalps for a AUS$10 reward and entire wild dog skin pieces for a AUS$120 reward during scheduled collection times.

The state government expects a large number of hunters to submit fox scalps and wild dog skin pieces over the first few months of collections as autumn typically sees a peak in fox hunting activity as young and displaced juvenile foxes move around the landscape.
