Hi Farming life. Is the problem mainly with Dingo Hybrid's or both? I've become very interested in Pure Dingo's and have found that very few 'pure' ones exist in Australia, except for remote areas where humans don't reside. (and Fraser island). cheers
Nice cattle. Got to do what you’ve got to do mate.
What an easy to watch video. I really enjoyed it. I have shot a lot of rabbits and kangaroos. On specific properties. I have also shot a lot of foxes, a number of feral cats and a shitload of pigs. I have never shot a brumby, buffalo, camel or feral cattle. It is not for me and I cannot bare the waste of an animal. I have shot dingoes the length of australia and feral dogs in a heartbeat. Farmers have guns, a few are competitive shooters but mostly they are a work tool and should be treated as such by legislation and the wider australian community.
That dog looked to have kelpie in in. But then again kelpie is supposed to have some dingo in it.
My kelpie is soft as butter. She wouldn’t hurt a fly. Best dogs in the world for sure.
Your cattle are in real good shape! Nice going!
Looks very close to the one the Joseph Banks identified small wolf he noted on his travels to Australia back in 1772. Before dogs were introduced here. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portrait_of_a_Large_Dog
So, in your opinion guys, how do you tell if It's a wild dog or a Dingo?
Akita or Huskie cross by the look of his head
Ye have seen nothing yet my friend.
NO1 .Wild dogs in aussie are breeding at alarming rates.
NO 2 They now have evolved through persecution to being probably the smartest canine in the world.
NO 3 And when you get a dog that smart you have a serious problem.
NO 4 Best of luck. Ye are going to need it.
Gday mate great video thanks for sharing. What caliber did you use? Also just subscribed!!
Are the dogs also a problem for cow’s
Thanks for sharing your day, a good job getting that dog, one less stock killer to worry about.
Nicely done ; l
Good on mate
Dingo. The other other other white meat
well done mate thats one less more please thanks for posting
Unfortunately calves and sheep in fact most domestic animals are easier prey than roos. We have lost all our geese and 22 Turkeys next door has lost 8 sheep and three calves which is a big percentage of their small herd. Its a tough situation I don't like killing any dog but at the end of the day weather I have grass or not is irelevant if the dogs eat my stock. Thanks for commenting. John
Couldn't these dogs be also keeping down the number of roos and wallabies, so leaving more feed for your cattle ?
