Livestock on roads pose a great danger to motorists. If you own or provide agistment for livestock, you must set up and maintain adequate fencing so the animals you keep on your land cannot escape.
Council is likely to impound your stock if they escape from your property. Officers can also impound livestock from within your property if there is a risk of them wandering and endangering public safety.
Charges for wandering livestock
The livestock impoundment charge is $111 per head plus transport costs. An additional daily holding fee of $23 also applies.
