Wild dogs have presented a major problem ever since stock raising was commenced in Western Australia. While the intensity of the menace has moved outwards as settlement advanced, the problem is still acute in the outback and sufficiently serious within many settled areas to cause concern. It is felt that a review of the situation may assist farmers, pastoralists and others concerned by giving them a better idea of the extent of the problem, the manner in which the Government and other authorities are tackling it and some proposed future moves.
