Other planned events: Notice of 1080 baiting
NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) will be conducting a baiting program using fresh meat baits containing 1080 (sodium fluoroacetate) poison for the control of wild dogs and foxes. The program will be conducted between Wednesday 20 May 2021 and Sunday 27 June 2021 in Belford National Park.
This program is part of a coordinated control program under the Central Hunter Wild Dog Management Plan, which aims to mitigate the impacts of wild dogs on stock and wildlife.
All baiting locations will be identifiable by signs.
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.
