  1. Bloody livestock are always wandering around Bungwalbyn-Whiporie Rd, near the Boggy Ck Rd junction in particular. The council does nothing about it and the people who keep these animals allow their fences to remain in a bad state of repair. Many of the fences are falling down and need replacing, but the owners just occasionally do little patch jobs and have no thought or care for road users.
