Mr McCurdy said the plan was originally put in place by the coalition when in government but there are fears it will not be continued.

"It's a wonderful tool in reducing the amount of kangaroos that are out there, but it's also great not leaving the carcasses on the ground for the wild dogs because then the wild dogs get out of control.

"But the Labor government has turned its back on it," he said.

The trial extension ends on March 31st.
