Wild packs of dogs and wedge tailed eagles are wrecking havoc on farms around Merriwa.

The animals have been responsible for killing numerous sheep over the past few months.

Farmer Chris Kemp says numbers of dogs have risen lately as they are becoming less susceptible to previously effective culling techniques, such as the use of poisoned bait.

“The National Park needs to propose a review of the ways they control the dogs. We need major recognition of the State Government of the problem, and to allocate more funding so trapping programs can be funded.

“If they keep killing the way there are, there will be no more native animals left in the National Park.”
