Constituency question: Feral Pigs in Heywood

My constituency question is to the Minister for Agriculture in the other
place, and I seek is the latest information on the specific actions being
taken to deal with federal pigs at the recently UNESCO world heritage
listed Budj Bim Indigenous landscape in my electorate.

Media reports last week suggest that feral pigs have been noticed in the
Heywood region since 2015 but numbers are growing significantly and there is serious potential for extensive and irreversible damage to the
Budj Bim cultural area and to farmland in the area.

In a joint statement to the media last week the responsible departments and agencies said they were working with the community but failed to saywhat they were doing.

This is an issue that needs a robust and immediate approach, and I seek that information about what is specifically being done to deal with
this problem.
