New bounty for wild pigs in the North Burnett

BOUNTY hunters in the North Burnett will soon have another incentive to go out and hunt.

North Burnett Regional Council has introduced a $5 bounty for the snout and tail of wild pigs.

"Wild pigs destroy agriculture industries through destroying our crops," Mayor Rachel Chambers said.

"Council has decided on trial project, capping it at $5000, so $5 for the snout and tail.

"With the pilot project we're also hoping to gather data and educate the public on possible management strategies."
