Post Pig Laws - Canberra
Hi Farmers,

I've heard from a few partially informed sources that "pigs can't be kept in the Molongolow catchment" or something like that. Does anyone have any details on this? Is it all pigs, or just piggeries?

That's interesting as I saw one in a paddock at Tuggeranong homestead about 4 weeks ago. Was a little surprised I must say (at seeing it not the law bit).

That was my understanding too is that pigs in the ACT are a no-no!

wow

- the department of education in their document care and use of animals in ACT schools allows for the docking of piglet tails and castration of pigs less than 2 months.

but nothing about keeping them

:hmm
