Stock On Roads

Our animal management rangers follow up all complaints about stock on roads. 

Wandering stock is an issue in the District, and presents a threat to motorists. 

If stock are on the road, they are removed from the road into the nearest paddock if possible.  If the owner of the stock cannot be identified, stock are impounded and transported to Council’s pound. 

Repeat incidents are investigated by Council’s Animal Control Officers.
