Other planned events: Notice of 1080 Program - Fox
NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) is conducting a ground baiting program from the 20th September 2023 to 20 December 2023. The operation will use 1080 (sodium fluoroacetate) poison for the control of foxes in the form of Canid Pest Ejectors (CPE's).
The program will take place in Bango Nature Reserve and Mundoonen Nature Reserve.
The program is in support of the Feral Fighters coordinated baiting program.
Signs will be placed at the entry to the baiting location. Domestic pets are not permitted in NSW National Parks managed lands. 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.
Please contact the Queanbeyan NPWS area office for more information on 6229 7166.
