Other planned events: 1080 fox and wild dog baiting program underway

NSW National Parks and Wildlife Services will continue its 1080 wild dog and fox baiting program in Manobalai Nature Reserve until Tuesday 31 October 2017. This program is using ejectors strategically placed with 1080 product.

 

The program is part of a regional management strategy to control wild dogs and foxes using baits containing 1080 poison. 1080 can be lethal to domestic pets if ingested and domestic pets are not permitted in national parks and nature reserves. We suggest neighbouring properties should tie their dogs up or muzzle them while mustering for the duration of the programs and a 4 week period afterwards. For more information please call the NPWS Upper Hunter area office on (02) 6574 5555.
