Wild dogs are one of the major invasive animals threatening private land assets in provincial Victoria. They are distributed throughout forested areas in eastern Victoria, and in the Big Desert Wilderness area in the north west of the state.
The wild dog population comprises feral or wild populations of dogs (Canis lupus familiaris) and Dingo-dog hybrids (Canis lupus dingo x Canis lupus familiaris).
