Other planned events: 1080 wild dog control program

Wild dog trapping and 1080 baiting program is occuring in Myall Lakes and Ghin-doo-ee National Parks from 8 August until the 29 September 2017. The program is part of a wider cooperative program being conducted in conjunction with Local Land Services, Forestry Corp, MidCoast Council and the Bulahdelah and District Wild Dog Control group.

Domestic pets are not permitted in Nature Reserves, National Parks or State Conservation Areas. Neighbours and reserve users are reminded that 1080 baits are lethal to domestic pets. We suggest that pets and working dogs be restrained to ensure that they do not enter the baiting location during poisoning operations or to muzzle dogs if they are required to work the baiting location during and after poisoning. In the event of accidental poisoning seek immediate veterinary assistance.
