Dingoes to remain classified as non-native wild dogs under reform to Western Australian law
Widespread reforms to WA's Biodiversity Conservation Act, expected next year, will not consider a change to the existing classification of a dingo as a wild dog, not native to Australia.
The iconic animals are considered no different to wild dogs and can be trapped or killed without permission in many places.
Dingoes are currently classed as unprotected native fauna and a declared pest, but the animals will be listed as non-fauna under widespread reform to the Act.
