Bounty collection update

The Victorian Fox and Wild Dog Bounty will continue in line with the Victorian Governments budget announcement on 7 May 2024. The collection schedule for the remainder of the 2024 bounty season is now available on this web page.

Participants are encouraged to set up an online account to streamline the application process and ensure prompt electronic payment.

Payment via cheque will no longer be available after 1 July 2024.

Participants are reminded that the wild dog component of the bounty program has ceased in north west Victoria in line with the changes made to the dingo unprotection order on 14 March 2024. There have been no changes to the fox component of the bounty in north west Victoria.

Wild dog collections will continue in the east of the State in line with the current terms and conditions. The continuation of the wild dog component of the bounty beyond 1 October 2024 will be determined in line with the outcomes of the Victorian Dingo Conservation review being led by DEECA.
