Other planned events: Post fire relief program - ongoing 1080 aerial and ground baiting program underway
NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) is conducting an aerial and ground baiting program using meat baits, meat bait products and canid pest ejectors containing 1080 (sodium fluoroacetate) poison, for the control of wild dogs and foxes.
The program is happening between Tuesday 31 March and Wednesday 30 September 2020 in Ben Halls Gap National Park and nature reserve.
There will be signs at all baiting locations.
Domestic pets are not permitted in NSW national parks. 1080 is lethal to cats and dogs. Pets and working dogs in the vicinity must be restrained or muzzled and must not enter the baiting locations. In the event of accidental poisoning seek immediate veterinary assistance.
