WHILE Noosa residents are fighting to protect dingoes on Fraser Island, nearby Eerwah Vale property owners are under siege from marauding wild dogs.

And, according to Eileen Walder, the problem of dingoes and cross-breed dogs has been worsening since an effective control program quite some years ago.

"It has become so bad that over Christmas, while we were away in America, the dingoes were killing calves as they were being born," Ms Walder said.

"One particular pair who look pure dingo have become especially bold lately, coming right up to houses and seem unafraid of humans. They are very brazen."

She said several pets had been attacked in recent times, prompting her to contact the Sunshine Coast Council, which had agreed for its pest controller, Peter Bell, to meet with residents.

This meeting, at a time and venue to be decided will be only for affected Eerwah Vale and North Arm property owners.

Ms Walder said there were almost daily sighting of the dogs in the area.

She said one cattle producer said he had been dispatching up to 15 wild dogs a year.

She said Mr Bell would present suggestions to handle the problem and hoped residents would discuss their ideas so that a solution could be found which was also safe.

Anyone wanting to attend may call Ms Walder on 5442 8255.
