REWARD FOR THE RECOVERY OF A TASMANIAN FOX

Upping the Fox Reward for the discovery of the first free-ranging Tasmanian Fox to $5000

The State Government has called for more engagement from the Tasmanian community in the fox threat.

Previously three separate $1000 rewards were offered in 2006 for a genuine fox caught or shot in Tasmania. A $1000 reward offered on Tasmanian Times has been available since August 2006 and remains unclaimed.

This reward has now been increased to $5000. It is a genuine once-off financial encouragement to Tasmanian hunters to get involved. The only aim of this reward is to get to the truth about the existence of foxes in Tasmania and build public confidence.
