To ensure traffic safety, minimise damage to public land and help animal owners, Animal Control will remove animals from public roads and areas.
Stock wandering onto privately-owned land can be notified to Animal Control to allow them to be matched up with lost stock.
Stock wandering onto public land or roads may be impounded. If impounded, the animal owner will be liable for impounding fees, sustenance costs and any cartage.
Stock owners are liable for any damage caused by their stock wandering onto the road if the presence of the stock on the road is caused by the owner's negligence.
