The program will involve the use of 1080 poison baits containing 1080 (sodium fluoroacetate) poison (including meat baits and meat bait products) for the control of wild dogs and foxes. This program is designed to minimise the impacts of wild dogs and foxes on livestock and native wildlife, especially threatened species.
All baiting locations will be identifiable by signs.
Please be reminded that domestic pets are not permitted on NPWS Estate. 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.
