Other planned events: Notice of 1080 baiting
NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS), in conjunction with Wongwibinda Wild Dog Association and Northern Tablelands Local Land Services, will be conducting an emergency ground baiting program for the control of wild dogs.
The operations will involve the use of fresh meat containing Poison 1080 (sodium fluoroacetate). The program will be continuous and ongoing from Friday 9 July 2021 to Friday 30 July 2021 in the Bees Nest trail area in the western region of Guy Fawkes River NP.
All baiting locations will be signposted.
Domestic pets are not permitted in NSW national parks and reserves. Pets and working dogs may be affected (1080 is lethal to cats and dogs). Pets and working dogs must be restrained or muzzled in the vicinity and must not enter the baiting location. In the event of accidental poisoning seek immediate veterinary assistance.
