This program is part of a cooperative Oberon Wild Dog Management Program control program coordinated by Oberon Pest Animal Management Committee. It aims to reduce the impacts of wild dogs on stock and wildlife. If you'd like to be involved in the program, please call Central Tablelands Local Land Services on 02 6350 3110 or South East Local Land Services on 02 4824 1900.
Although not expected, some non-target or domestic animals may be affected, particularly domestic dogs. While domestic animals aren't permitted in national parks, be extra vigilant in ensuring that pets and working dogs are controlled. Ensure they are not allowed access to baiting locations during and after the program. If working dogs are being used, we suggest muzzling them during and after baiting. In the event of accidental poisoning, seek immediate veterinary assistance.
For further information please call Oberon NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service on 02 6336 6200.
