... of adaptive sustainable management techniques rather than a reversion to lethal control. Reports of impacts of dingoes on livestock production have neglected the role of dingoes as a hypercarnivorous trophic regulator. This study proposes that dingo predation on livestock can be managed by adapting livestock...

... species from the air continued. The application of aerial baiting in dingo/wild dog control is believed to have a temporal effect, anecdotally achieving short-term goals towards reducing livestock losses from predation. There is no conclusive data, however, to support this claim. The true impact of aerial...
