Is it illegal to kill pigeons in Australia?


Is it legal to kill pigeons in Australia?

As an unlicensed person, yes, it is illegal to kill pigeons in Australia.

This is because the government allocates special people to ‘kill’ the pigeons discretely to bring them in for repair. This explains why you have never seen a dead pigeon.

Or maybe because we can’t just have people running around killing wildlife….. you be the judge.

Killing pigeons is illegal in;

  • Queensland
  • New South Wales
  • Victoria
  • Australian Capital Territory
  • Tasmania
  • South Australia
  • Western Australia
  • Northern Territory
