Local Farmers Contribute to Fox Bounty Success

Eyre Peninsula farmers have contributed to the almost 2,500 fox scalps collected in the first round of the State Government’s fox bounty program.

In August, the $220,000 dollar program was announced, with a $10 payment provided to farmers for each fox destroyed, in an effort to help cull the pest and support drought affected farmers.

Fox bounty collections occurred on the Eyre Peninsula in mid October at Cummins and Kyancutta.

In total, there were 2,429 scalps brought in from a total of 33 claimants for the first round. 

The fox bounty will be available for another two years.
