Wandering livestock

If you own livestock it is your responsibility as the owner to make sure they are contained. Wandering stock can cause serious injury to people and damage private property.

If you see livestock wandering on a road or public space please report it immediately (including after hours) by calling 1300 787 624

For any other concerns about livestock, you can report an issue about animals online

Call us on 1300 787 624 between 8.30am and 5pm to discuss missing livestock.

Livestock that have been impounded by a Council officer are held in our livestock pound for 7 days. 

If the animals are not claimed within this time we have the right to dispose of them under the Impounding of Livestock Act 1994
