Animals & Pets

Our Local Government Rangers are not authorised to capture or manage any wildlife issues.

For information, resources, and further assistance, please reach out to a professional - you can find a wide range of options and help via the following:



Abandoned motor vehicles

Abandoned vehicles create dangerous hazards for motorists. Prompt removal is often required and Rangers work closely with local Police to ensure this is carried out. They trace and contact vehicle owners whenever possible, and arrange towing and/or impounding and disposal of abandoned vehicles. 

If you have found an abandoned vehicle, please be sure to report it to local Police, or reach out to our Rangers via (08) 9780 4200.


Unlawful parking practices cause considerable inconvenience, and in some cases create incredibly dangerous situations. The issuing of Parking Infringement Notices is sometimes the only way of ensuring compliance with the restrictions. A high priority is the regular patrolling of special parking bays set aside for disabled persons which tend to be misused by able-bodied drivers.

If you have found an illegally parked vehicle, please be sure to report it to local Police, or reach out to our Rangers via (08) 9780 4200.

Off Road Vehicles (ORV)

Rangers, WA Police, the Department of Parks and Wildlife (DPAW) and the Water Corporation are working closely to reduce this problem. It is requested that the public inform either the Shire Rangers or local Police of any details or the identity of offenders if known.

If off road vehicles are on public property such as a reserve, bridle path or any public open space, contact the Shire Rangers on (08) 9780 4200 who will investigate the issue. If the vehicle is on a footpath or roadway, please contact the Police on 131 444.

Litter & dumping Rubbish

Rangers Services rely on the community to assist in identifying offenders of illegal dumping of rubbish and materials. Rangers check for illegal dumping of rubbish during regular patrols, and also keep an eye out for vehicles and trailers en-route to waste disposal sites or the bushland for insecure loads or illegal dumping activities.

Litter can take many forms:

  • Rubbish thrown from a moving vehicle or by pedestrians
  • Building rubbish, household rubbish or greenwaste placed on street verges
  • Placing advertising materials on vehicle windscreens
  • Dumped shopping trolleys
  • Improperly disposing of used syringes
  • Abandoned vehicles

Please call the Shire Administration Office on (08) 9780 4200 or email to report any complaints.


It is the responsibility of the stock owner to contain livestock within their property boundaries. The containment of livestock is imperative for the safety of the community and to reduce the spread of disease and infection. It also means that your animals are protected and maintained properly.

Management of Livestock

Livestock is not permitted to be kept on premises within a townsite without Shire approval, and all livestock is to be registered and tagged with Australia's National Livestock Identification System (NLIS)

The NLIS is Australia’s system for the identification and traceability of cattle, sheep and goats. NLIS reflects Australia’s commitment to biosecurity and food safety, and provides a competitive advantage in a global market.

Wandering Livestock

These incidents pose a significant danger to the public travelling on roads and in most cases are preventable by the provision of sufficient, appropriate and well maintained fences.

Rangers should be contacted for staying livestock that is on roads, as well as be in attendance to ensure roadways are safe and fencing issues are rectified.
