Erlistoun WA - Dogs

6 posts in this topic

Received an email from Regis Resources tonight concerning an increase in sightings of wild dogs and two close call incidents over the last few weeks.
As of tomorrow an intensive baiting and track 'em and whack 'em program will start between King of Creation mine and Garden well mine on the Erlistoun / Bandya boundary.

Also, due to some numpty flapping his gums in the Laverton van park "if my dog takes a bait I'll shoot the station owner" the new station owners are exercising their right and from now on no dogs are permitted on Erlistoun station without prior written consent.

Sorry folks, not my doing blame it one idiot and his big mouth.

G'day Steve, Must say for my couple of months plus out in the goldfields I haven't seen/heard so many wild dogs before, Almost every night/morning you hear them, Seen plenty wandering around but luckily had no encounters of a bad kind with them. Lot's of wild dogs out there !  The baiting programs don't seem to be doing much to dent the numbers.

tvanwho,  I may seem confusing at first because he said this was happening in WA. But WA is not Washington State, it is Western Australia. They don't have Coyotes there.

Sorry Tvan, yep WA Australia, I post it here as this forum is frequented by a lot of Aussies, many who visit WA.


Ashley, two really good wet seasons in a row has allowed them to breed up.

The big wets have also reduced the effectiveness of the baits, couple that with some rather slack or next to non existent baiting programs and you have a problem.

Two attacks on people last year in my area and one was a pretty severe mauling. So far this year two close call incidents at the mines reported, plus I had a couple of run in this year also.

      Popped a stack of camels the other day and stole a back strap off a young cow.
      Normally I hang them for a week or two to age but I went and caught up with a tour group that day and we knocked off the whole back strap that night. No washing up that night, all plates were licked clean

      Hi everyone
      just found this on Parks Victoria web site and thought i would share for anyone who may be interested to know
      that could be planning a trip down under
      who here in Victoria In Aussie land does the Gold Prospecting Tours 
      Even us Aussies may be interested to know who do the tours
      I was looking at the fees.. not cheap!
      guess these are the only gold propecting tours that have all their paper work in place
      The only ones who are licensed and insured to take people on tours.

      Hi folks,
      for those making the trek this year and who plan on detecting on Erlistoun Station.
      Ownership has changed hands and it is no longer held by Grainger Pastoral Co.
      I will still be here as on site manager so it's business as usual as far as I am concerned.
      We are a prospector friendly station and all we ask is to please let us know if and when you'll be on the station. Feral control is on going so for safety reasons, it helps if we know where you are and you know where we are.
      Please take out what you bring in, don't bury your rubbish. Please keep off station roads when wet, that wheel rut becomes a water channel, that water channel becomes a creek....
      Please respect leases and know where you are and have 40E's and permissions in order.
      Please respect cattle and infrastructure, and no firearms or shooting under any circumstances.
      At this stage I am not sure on the new owners policy regarding bringing dogs onto the station but I will endeavour to find out ASAP and update it here.
      Correspondence can be sent to:
      Steve Fisher,
      P.O. Box 189
      Laverton W.A. 6440
      Ph :08 9037 5951 (after 6pm)
      Alternatively I can be contacted here on this forum
