Dangerous stock on roads.

By Portal Admin - 9th September 2018 - Back to News

Stock on roads is a dangerous problem, and one common in an area where cattle is often in a roadside paddock, such as Bass Coast.

Livestock on roads presents a danger to motorists and also to the stock. If you see stock on the road, contact Bass Coast Shire Council on 1300 BCOAST (226 278) or (03) 5671 2211.

Council Officers respond quickly to stock on road incidents, due to the high level of immediate danger. Officers will try to identify where the stock belong and return them to their owners. They will also discuss the incident with the owner and work with them to help mitigate future escapes.

Where owners are repeatedly unable to contain their cattle, an infringement can be issued. Council recently charged a Harmers Haven resident for failing to comply with a notice requiring cattle is adequately confined to the property.
