Permits are then sent to appropriate DCO to undertake the inspection
In the case of DCA, it is better to contact the DCO directly as generally permits are not required – and prompt action is. If this DCA is an emergency, the land owner can act immediately and contact his/her DCO thereafter (within 24hrs). The DCO will undertake the necessary field inspection and approve the permit post facto.

 

Ezemvelo has a Damage Causing Animal Standard Operating Procedure (SOP). DCA are managed in terms of this SOP. Your first port of call is your District Conservation Officer who will respond accordingly and provide advice. Management of DCA does not fall within the definition of hunting and are managed on a case-by-case basis in association with your DCO.
