Straying – Animals


If there is a stray animal in your area there are a number of things you can do.


Firstly, you should report the following details to Council:

  1. Your name and address
  2. A full description of the animal (eg. type, colour, breed, size)
  3. The identity and address of the owner of the animal (if possible).

We will then arrange for officers to patrol the area to capture the wandering animal.

If Council can identify the owner of a stray animal, they may be issued with an “on-the-spot” fine.

If Council cannot locate the animal or determine the owner, we suggest you contact us immediately the next time you see the animal, with as much information as possible.
