Complaints about Animals

Forward to a friend Printer Friendly

Do you have a complaint about an animal?  Before you contact us to investigate, have you talked to the owner to discuss your concerns? Sometimes they're not aware there's a problem and a quick chat can resolve the issue.

If talking doesn't help, or you feel you can't approach the owner, you can lodge a complaint for the Local Laws team to investigate.  

For all other animal complaints, please contact our Local Laws team on 1300 520 520 or email us.
